Basta dire il numero di partecipanti per capire che si tratta di un evento davvero unico: oltre 1000 giovani timonieri pronti ad inaugurare nel Garda Trentino la stagione agonistica nella settimana di Pasqua, a bordo del proprio Optimist, imbarcazione di riferimento del vivaio internazionale della vela, agonistica e non. Una festa della vela, dello sport, dell’amicizia tra i popoli, che in una distesa di colori dà vita alla prima regata stagionale della Fraglia Vela Riva. Un migliaio di regatanti suddivisi tra cadetti e juniores in rappresentanza di una quarantina di nazioni partecipanti vengono gestiti con un’organizzazione tale da lasciare sempre soddisfatti partecipanti, coach e accompagnatori, che approfittano della settimana di Pasqua per trascorrere alcuni giorni di vacanza sul Garda Trentino. Uno spettacolo che non si può perdere, anche perchè la manifestazione nel 2012 è stata certificata GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™.

--------------------------------------------------
This Guinness World Record breaking event, classified as the largest single-class regatta in the world with 1055 actual participants, is as exciting on land as well as on water. More than 1000 Optimist helmsmen from more than 30 nations take part in this unique and unforgettable event. This year's edition will certainly have a large participation and a  high technical level. It will also be an excellent opportunity for the athletes to familiarise themselves with the regatta course that will be used in the World Optimist Championships in July organised by Fraglia Vela Riva. Two other international regattas will be going on at the same time as the Garda Optimist Meeting during the Easter period on Trentino Garda. These events will be organised by sailing clubs from Upper Garda “Vela Garda Trentino” as part of the 1st World Juvenile Sailing Week. This global sport's event will transform Trentino Garda into a haven for the future of international sailing bringing together youngsters aged 9 and 16-18 from all over the world.
