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, anche perchè quest'anno la manifestazione concorrerà per essere certificata GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™.
