Basta dire il numero di partecipanti per capire che si tratta di un evento davvero unico: un migliaio di 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 internazionale della Fraglia Vela Riva. Cadetti e juniores provenienti da una quarantina di nazioni 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™.
