Join the largest sailing competition in the World in Gulf of Trieste, ITALY!

You can now charter bareboat yachts and join with thousands of other sailors racing at BARCOLANA regatta:

With end of summer season getting closer, this is last invitation to consider sailing in the Mediterranean during 2020.  You can join hundreds of sailors on a social distancing sailing event in Northern Italy, around the Gulf of Trieste from 9-12th October this year. A historic event taking place every year, Barcolana is an international sailing regatta organized by the Yacht Club Societa Velica di Brcola e Grignano.  Guiness World Record holder since 2019, the regatta was named the ‘’GREATEST SAILING RACE’’ as more than 16,000 sailors turned up on the starting line, with more than 2,680 sailboats racing on the day.  Regardless if you are an amateur or a racing professional, sailing on a small 30ft-er or a big and luxury 60ft-er you are welcomed and can join in the fun, as this is where you can measure your sailing skills with many others.  Given the nature of sailing, social distancing is guaranteed.

Running more than 50 years now, the Barcolana Autumn Cup Regatta will be joined by private and charter yachts from many European countries, in particular those close by ie. Italy, Slovenia and Croatia.  As a result, we can offer a number of yachts for charter during this particular week and some of those are listed below.

In case you do wish to participate and maybe have more specific requirements, we can also look at a number of other boats that will have permission and relevant insurance for the regatta.  The closest airports are Trieste and Venice, although many sailors simply drive from European destinations and business centres.  Parking could be arranged on request and staying on board a couple of days before the actual event and a day or two afterwards is possible too.

Here’s the race course for Barcolana51, the same as last year’s: the Regatta will be raced on a  quadrilateral course with fixed angles in the Gulf of Trieste and it will be 13 nautical miles long. Starting time is at 10:30 a.m. and the starting line is positioned between Barcola and Miramare. Initially the sailing yachts will race at 210 degrees for 4.3 nautical miles. After Mark n°1, the race course presents a 0.90 miles offset mark at 332 degrees.  The Regatta proceeds for 4 miles off the coast of Miramare Castle between Mark n°2 and Mark n°3, then the yachts will sail back towards Barcola  for 2.3 miles. The final leg of the race course is located off the coast of the lighthouse Faro della Vittoria and after sailing for 1.5 miles at 160 degrees yachts will reach the Regatta’s finish line  positioned in the Dam of Porto Vecchio - Diga del Porto Vecchio – in the waters off Piazza Unità d’Italia.

The subsequent ceremonies and award presentations will take place with all social distancing measures in place as demanded by local or national governments, thus you are expected to wear face masks or even have a covid-19 test before the race. We can assist with these arrangements and also provide airport transfers if required.  Provisioning in advance and in order to avoid major shopping trips can be arranged just in time.  In case you would need a professional skipper or additional crew, this could also be arranged under circumstances.  For any other queries or for specific quotes and information on all available boats, please do get in touch.
