Activities go on at Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour Village, located in Genova in the piers of the old harbor. Ten teams are getting ready to leave the moorings towards La Maddalena, in a course of 195nm.

Yesterday, at 6.30PM, the Opening Ceremony was held in the Village, at the presence of the main institutions of the city of Genova. The mayor Marco Bucci declared: "We are honored that this iconic round Italy regatta starts from Genova this year as well, before touching other wonderful Italian cities. Genova has built its origins and culture always in strong correlation with the sea, and we are happy that this relationship keeps going on over time. Fair winds to all the competitors, see you again at the end of Nastro Rosa Veloce!".

Riccardo Simoneschi, CEO of SSI, organizing authority of the event, introduced the news that this year the competition will be among teams, racing in offshore, kite and Waszp: the overall winner of the event will be the team that will have the best overall placements in the three disciplines.
