Barcolana Regatta... and the sailing party is here!

2000 sailing boats, all together: a wonderful show.

Imagine four sailors in a bar, dreaming on a regatta even in their wonderful gulf, the Barcola seafront of the Gulf of Trieste. This is how Barcolana Regatta was born in 1969, with 51 participants on the line of departure at its first edition.

You say thanks to the Bora, or say that was a beautiful dream, or that simply that group of friends has grown up during the year, but Barcolana has been quickly given the title of ‘Regatta with the greatest number of attendees’: in the 70s participants increased to 400, then 800… up to 2000 as today, and now not only is it regarded as a regatta but a true celebration.
