'Acque Libere' has set as its first objective the creation of a Nautical Base in La Maddalena, Sardinia, appropriate to the activities of the disabled and the purchase of boats of the class 2.4mR, the top of the International Paralympic sailing.

The championship participants will be guests of Velocitek Italia and Cantina Chiara Ziliani , anyone else decides to buying dinner ( 30.00 Euro ) will contribute to the formation of capital for the purchase of 2.4mR which is the first objective of the association.
