LA CARICA DEI...MILLE

Basta dire il numero di partecipanti per capire che si tratta di un evento davvero unico: 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!
--------------------------------------------------
The numbers speak for themselves, 1000 young helmsmen will kick off the Garda Trentino racing season during Easter week aboard their own “Optimist” internationally considered the first boat for all sailors ...competitors and non alike. Sailing, Sport and friendship will be the ingredients for the first race of the season at Fraglia Vela Riva. Around one thousand racers made up of cadets and juniors and representing 40 countries will take part with everything organized to make participants, coaches and chaperones feel welcome. This is an ideal opportunity for everyone to spend a few days holiday during Easter week on Trentino Garda.
Truly a sight to behold ...Don’t miss it
