Organized by the newborn YCCO, which is based in our port, on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st March 2019 the Velathlon Trophy will be held in Capo d’Orlando marina, a non-competitive sailing event that aims to bring the sport of sailing closer to a new and larger audience. The event, made possible by the availability of shipowners who have already taken part in the championship, is articulated with Saturday’s ground appointments, with small introductions to navigation and sea trials, and the Sunday sailing, which sees various crews facing each other. The trials will also be combined with social gatherings, thanks to the availability of Capo d’Orlando Marina commercial operators. There are also agreements with B&B in Capo d’Orlando, for those wishing to stay in the vicinity.
