Everything is also all set to go for the events held at sea, starting this Friday, with the Maxi regatta of Portopiccolo and the final stretch of the Melges Circuit. The registrations for the Barcolana Nuota are, however, closed with 283 participants ready for Sunday morning.

Melges 24 European Sailing Series @Barcolana - At the moment there are 17 boats registered for the final stretch of the Melges 24 European circuit organized, together with the Barcolana, by the Società Triestina Sport del Mare and the Italian and International Melges 24 class.

The event has as its operating base the splendid location of Portopiccolo, where many events will be held over the next few days, starting with the exhibition by Carlo Borlenghi "Vento e Vele", to be inaugurated at the Portopiccolo Art Gallery. The Portopiccolo Maxi Race is considered by the more competitive yachts as a warm up for the Barcolana, an opportunity for the yachtsmen and skippers to test their equipment and face their main opponents. These teams of professionals are, in fact, assembling in Trieste during these days, preparing their equipment and working on their boats. The Portopiccolo Maxi Race 2021 @Barcolana foresees three days of regattas and therefore the chance to fully enter the Barcolana spirit.
