“Vele storiche Viareggio” pre‐enrolment officially open


For the 11th consecutive year the Vele Storiche Viareggio Association is organising the most important meeting‐race of the end of the season, reserved for vintage, classic and traditional sailing
boats. The Tuscan town will welcome a fleet of about 40 boats which have made yachting history. Pre‐enrolment is officially open and will give boat‐owners the opportunity to ensure themselves of a berth in the port wellahead of time and without paying an advance. However, a discount will be applied to those who enroll officially.

Pre‐enrolment is officially open for the 11th Edition of the Raduno Vele Storiche Viareggio, which will take place in Viareggio from the 8th to the 11th October 2015. Vintage, classic and traditional sailing boats may take part in this event, which is organised with the help of Club Nautico Versilia and AIVE (Associazione Italiana Vele d’Epoca), even if they are not members of the Vele Storiche Viareggio Association. The event officially closes the season for Vintage Sailing Boats in the Mediterranean and offers a unique occasion to mingle with other like‐minded people before the Winter break.

After passing the ten‐year mark this prestigious Tuscan brotherhood continues to uphold sailing traditions and to promote the culture of classic sails. The pre‐enrolment in the October event, for which no advance payment is necessary, permits boat‐owners to reserve a berth beforehand so that the boats may be berthed comfortably.
However, the first 20 boats which enroll officially by paying the requested fee, (200 euro for yachts up to 12 mts, 300 euro for yachts from 12 to 18 mts, 400 euro for yachts over 18 mts) will have a triple advantage: they will be given a discount of 20% on both the enrolment fee and the 2016 membership fee and a free 1 year subscription to “Giornale della Vela” (in digital format).

The three races scheduled, coastal and triangular, will take place in the sea off the towns of Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi and Marina di Carrara, with the beautiful background of the splendid Apuane Alps and the beaches of Versilia. This year too there will be the wonderful dinner offered
to boat‐owners and crew in the well‐known Cantiere Navale Francesco Del Carlo in Viareggio, one
of the most important restorers of vintage boats, known and respected internationally.
