Fly­ing start

Yachting World - - Front Page -

Afly past by the Ital­ian Air Force aer­o­bat­ics dis­play team, Pat­tuglia Acro­bat­ica, Frecce Tri­col­ori, tops the sight of over 2,200 yachts tak­ing part in the 50th an­niver­sary Bar­colana Re­gatta on 14 Oc­to­ber.

This is the biggest sail­ing re­gatta in the world. Yachts sail a 13-mile tri­an­gu­lar course in the

Gulf of Tri­este be­tween Bar­cola and Mi­ra­mare, fin­ish­ing in front of the Pi­azza Unità d’italia. This is the cul­mi­na­tion of three days of yacht rac­ing or­gan­ised by So­ci­età Vel­ica di Bar­cola e Grig­nano (SVBG) and a pro­gramme of events on land. The re­gatta was first sailed in 1969 when 51 yachts took part and it has grown steadily ever year since then.
