Sea4All are the inclusive sea sport activities that for decades are carried out in Lignano Sabbiadoro (north-eastern Italy) throughout the whole year.

They are promoted and performed by the local association Tiliaventum and comprise also inclusive regatta teams on board on accessible boats such as Càpita - the accessible daysailer, 9.5 mt long, one of a kind which is autonomously maneuverable... always as active protagonist also for those who use wheelchair.

After having participated, as usual, at the famous Barcolana in Triest and having hosted during the previous week many guests on board, after having welcomed at the stand in the Barcolana Village numerous curious to inform and to promote sport activities for all, after having participated in the recent D-Marin Punta Faro Cup in Lignano Sabbiadoro, now it's time for the end of season events, such as the Lignano Autumn Championship: 4 weekends from 12 November until 2 December, to which traditionally participate crews from all over the Adriatic Sea and from abroad and which will see also the participation of the two inclusive Sea4All teams on board Càpita and Aylin.

The sport/racing year will officially end on Sunday, December 3rd with the ICE Cup in the waters of Lignano. The name says it all about how sea sports should not be experienced only during the bathing summer season... sea, sun, wind, sport, sailing, regattas... are for all during the whole year and not only in regattas. The initiatives in facts, include also during this period sailing open days, courses, navigations, aggregative meetings and much more... where people with special needs (physical disability, sensory, intellectual-relational ones, people with fragilities, terminally ill,..) share engaging sporting experiences.

The initiative enjoys the patronage of Friuli Venezia Region, Promoturismo FVG City of Lignano Sabbiaodoro. It is one of the social projects of Zampa Foundation.

Thanks to the partners: D-Marin, Marina Punta Faro Resort, Triride, Guidosimplex, Triring, Atis, Giotto Wine Listener, Tecnolam Belluno, KeepSmart, Intras Lignano and to all members and ship owners and volunteers that are always actively available.
