Trieste, City Centre, North of ItalyCATEGORIES
Traditionally, one of the most attended regattas in the world.
It happens a stone’s throw from Venice, and it gathers more than 2,000 sailing boats and 300,000 spectators. Hundreds of events. Barcolana is a festival worth to visit and to attend
51 boats ready to go on a day with a southern wind. That is how, more than fifty years ago, the Barcolana came about, a regatta “outside the box”, simple, open to anyone who has a sailing boat. Fifty years later it maintains the same popular spirit, although it now brings more than two thousand sailing boats together at the same starting line, with at least 25 thousand people at sea, while many, many more on land in Trieste enjoy a unique spectacle. The main regatta takes place on the 13th, preceded by ten days of minor regattas, exhibitions, tastings, events and concerts.
