VELA Cup Sicily October 7-8

In Capo d’Orlando, on the largest island in the Mediterranean and a few miles away from the Aeolian Islands, the VELA Cup Sicilia will take place on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 October. The location is perfect, the Marina di Capo D’Orlando is located in a unique position, a few steps from the delightful town and enchanting beaches. The Marina offers foreign boats, which come from “outside”, free mooring. An excellent idea is to use Capo D’Orlando as a starting point for a visit to the Aeolian Islands in a less crowded period. The Sicilian coast is no exception, Cefalù is just a few miles away! The regatta takes place on a fascinating coastal route and lasts no more than four hours.
