A lot of news for the regatta but the spirit stays the same: welcome to Trieste.


historic agreement with Ucina - the Italian Confederation of nautical industry - to collaborate with Genoa Boat Show; a new “spirit” involving hospitality; an innovative social dimension; and – above all – a lot of changes on water, with the creation of the Cruisers Class which will enable us to draw up next to the overall results a separate ranking dedicated to the yachts and crews that are the heart of the Barcolana. At its 45th edition, the Barcolana undergoes a radical change, it follows the pace of time, it aims at growing, despite the crisis with the purpose of getting even closer to competitors, to its public, and with a special goal: enable even more people from far away seas to be the stars of this event taking place in Trieste on the second Sunday of October.

“We are proud – explained the president of the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano – to present the 45th edition of the Barcolana: we have worked hard again this year to create an event which maintains the tradition of the regatta but at the same time is able to innovate. Thanks to the collaboration of great economic actors such as Assicurazioni Generali, historic main sponsor of the event, and our new partner North Sails, we are pleased to welcome on board, as well as all the local institutions; we will offer all sailors, the public and citizens a renewed event and regatta”. Let’s start from the poster: “This year’s poster – said president Spina – is the metaphor of the idea we have of the Barcolana: drawn by Giampaolo Amstici, it is a modern, promotional poster which at the same

time looks back at tradition. This is what this year’s Barcolana will be: new but faithful to the original spirit, the great seafaring festival”. Seafarers choose Trieste once a year: “They choose Trieste and the Barcolana, a perfect match. For this reason we have worked a lot on hospitality, we wanted to find a way to help sailors without a boat take part in the Barcolana. Last year we presented the race in Paris and Dusseldorf, during the boat shows and we were proved right: the Barcolana is an event in which

have a dream: every boat and boatowner should host a guest, someone who would like to participate in the regatta but does not have a boat, perhaps because she is moored up in a far away port and cannot reach Trieste. We hope that this guest comes to Trieste and feels at home, in the days of the Barcolana, and takes part in the race thanks to the hospitality of seafaring people”. Finally, the regatta itself: “There are two main news – explained president Spina – and they concern a change of the race course to reduce the risk of collisions at the first mark, and the creation of the new cruising class”. As to the new course, details will be provided in the Sailing Instructions, which will be published on 2 October.

everybody would like to participate but a place on a boat is not easy to find. So, thanks to the ideas of a young and creative company, we found the answer on Facebook: CrowdM is the name of the company run by a sailing lover that developed a software able to make boatowners and sailors meet, a sort of “find a cruise or crew” at the time of social networks. We


With reference to the cruising class: “It is a new class dedicated to cruising yachts. Next to the overall ranking list – which is the essence of the Barcolana – there will be another list taking into consideration boats that are not racers. The Barcolana was born in 1969 in a very simple way: have you got a boat? Have you got a sail? Then you can take part. We want to enhance this original spirit: technology has created a wide gap between cruisers and racers, the overall ranking list no longer tells stories about sailing amateurs, the heart of the Barcolana. We want to put them in the spotlight, give them a new role, celebrate their desire to take part”.

go live






he Barcolana acts as a promotional driving force for the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region” said the president of the Regional Government, Debora Serracchiani, who hosted the presentation of the regatta inside the Regional Government Palace. “The Barcolana – said the President of FVG – is both a duty and an opportunity”. Debora Serracchiani defined the Autumn Cup “an extraordinary promotional tool for our territory, a tourist attraction for Trieste and the entire Region: there are many innovative proposals and we want to be present at the forefront and learn to create other events with the same attractive power. The president of the Società velica Barcola e Grignano, Vincenzo Spina, invited


President Serracchiani to take part in the race and she accepted ‘’because I believe the Region should also be physically present’’ and she pointed out the value of the Barcolana as an ‘’extraordinary calling card’’ in the relation between Friuli Venezia Giulia and Eastern Europe, also because, ‘’from September 2013 the Italy-Russia tourism programme will start’’. Trieste’s Mayor, Roberto Cosolini, and president of the Province, Maria Teresa Bassa Poropat, support the regatta as well: according to the mayor of Trieste, the Barcolana is ‘’a seafaring and sport festival which enhances Trieste’s tourism, a sector which records a positive trend despite the difficult economic period’’. The Mayor of Trieste invited many European mayors to take part in the race, some of which are expert sailors, for instance Austria’s Mayor of Graz.



BARCOLANA NEW / Evolution and continuity



sporting event that repeats every year but bravely changes and introduces new elements to keep the pace of yachting evolution. The Barcolana proposes a range of important changes explained here and in the Sailing Instructions to be issued on 2 October.

Barcolana because they are the heart of this event. With a ranking list dedicated to these sailors, we will unveil many long-standing challenges between the crews consisting of expert mariners, taking care of their yacht with devotion and considering the Barcolana a true popular competition”.

An important change involves boats ranking: next to the overall ranking list, which considers the order of arrival and category according to the LOA of all boats crossing the finish line (no changes here), from this year there will also be a ranking list dedicated to “Cruisers”, i.e. yachts used for leisure cruising: these boats, with a lower racing performance rarely manage to step on the podium, but in Barcolana they are the majority. The “Miramare Trophy” has been created for them.

Defining the Cruising class has not been easy: a technical committee consisting of the former president Mauro Parladori, expert sail maker, by the naval architect Maurizio Cossutti and coordinated by sport officer Davide Favretto – worked during the winter to define the Cruising class, starting from the international racing rules of sailing. In order to be included in this category, upon entering for the regatta, the skipper or boatowner will put a mark in the box on the entry form: this choice will be checked automatically with the entries database containing the data of yachts that took part in previous editions. A technical commission will be set up during the registration period to check new entries and solve any possible doubts.

“I really like this change – explained president Vincenzo Spina – since I was appointed president of this sailing club, my aim has been to find a way to award the many cruising yachts that take part in the


The agreement with the Confederation of Italian Nautical Industry




he aim is to promote the sailing industry through events and initiatives involving leisure yachting. In addition to this, we want to strengthen relations between the Tyrrhenian and the Adriatic Seas and create promotional synergies between the International Boat Show in Genoa and the Barcolana, the nautical events with the greatest number of spectators and participants at international level. These are briefly the objectives of the project Nautical bases of European interest launched by UCINA Confindustria Nautica, co-organizer of Genoa International Boat Show to be held this year from 2 to 6 October with a totally renovated and innovative layout - and the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano, organizer of the Barcolana, the most crowded regatta in the Mediterranean, with over 1800 sailboats at the start, running for the 45th year and to be held on 13 October in the Gulf of Trieste.

Last year’s dead calm enabled organizers to set up several new measures. The regatta can be shortened at MARK 2 (no longer only at MARK 3), and the Barcolana Jury will have umpires present at all marks, ready – in case the course is shortened – to record the passage at each mark. This will also provide a greater control. This is an extra organizing effort to enable competitors to finish the race. “We are studying further details to arrange class finishes – explained president Spina – as it happens in some long races: smaller boats will have a shorter course compared to bigger boats in case of adverse weather conditions, i.e. bad weather or extreme dead clam”.

More in detail, the agreement signed by Anton Francesco Albertoni and Vincenzo Spina, presidents, of UCINA Confindustria Nautica and Società velica di Barcola e Grignano respectively, entails a series of activities to be carried out on the long and short terms which will further strengthen the bond between the Italian Nautical Industry Confederation and the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano. The agreement also contains many initiatives among which promotional activities between Genoa International Boat Show and the Autumn’s Cup Barcolana. The activities planned aim at promoting the two events in order to increase the interest of about 20 thousand sailors involved in each event.

“The project signed with the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano - said Anton Francesco Albertoni, President of UCINA Confindustria Nautica – is a sound initiative able to awaken the passion for yachting and in particular the love for sailing”. “The Società Velica di Barcola and Grignano – declared president Vincenzo Spina – is proud that UCINA has acknowledged that Barcolana is an event of excellence in the promotion of seafaring culture and passion for sailing; we work all year round to set up the Barcolana and this partnership gives us further motivation to continue developing our event and involve an even greater public, attracting more tourists and young people”.






n May the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano submitted a new course proposal for the Barcolana to Trieste’s Harbour Office and Slovenia’s authorities. A change which aims at making the regatta safer and more spectacular: over the years boats have evolved rapidly and according to the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano it is important to change the course so that the pack at the start can quickly spread out at the first mark, thus reducing the risk of collisions in one of the toughest legs of the race.

The changes will be described in the Sailing Instructions that will be published by the Svbg on 2 October and given to all boat owners upon entering the race. They will also be posted on the official web site. The changes do not involve the “traditional” features of the regatta such as the spectacular start along the same line and the finish near Barcola embankment. The length is the same too, changes involve the orientation of the marks: mark 1 (where most collisions took place), mark 2 (very close to the first one and used as a clearance mark) and mark 3. The marks will be set in a different way to reduce collisions: mark 1 is a sort of “call” for manoeuvring i.e. slightly adjusting one’s route (making it simpler for less experienced sailors), while the first true turn towards Trieste’s coast will be at mark 2, further away from mark 1. The purpose of MARK 1 is to direct and focus one’s route towards MARK 2 and this means that there won’t be any demanding manoeuvres at the first

mark and crews will be able to pass far from the buoy, avoiding bottlenecks that can cause collisions, without affecting their final result. “The decision not to change direction immediately at MARK 1, which will happen only when rounding MARK 2 – explained president Spina – is aimed at spreading out the pack. When the boats pass MARK 1 they will be further apart and will thus be able to manoeuvre more easily at MARK 2 to change direction; as to the length of the course, the shorter first leg will be balanced by a longer (about 1 mile more) second leg (MARK 1 - MARK 2). The third leg is slightly shorter: MARK 3 will be set further away from the shore while the start and the finish will stay the same. The new position of MARK 3 will enable competitors, in case of Bora, to pinch the wind in the last leg, offering an even more enthralling spectacle to the public crowded up along the waterfront and on the cliffs.




he new merchandising partner of Barcolana is North Sails. It is not only a clothing brand: first of all North Sails is world leader in the production of sails – it has chosen the Triestine regatta right after coming back from San Francisco where it is sponsor of the Louis Vuitton Cup, with Emirates Team New Zealand (in the past the brand backed Alinghi in America’s Cup victories in 2003 and 2007). The partnership with Barcolana was signed in May. “Thanks to the joint work carried out with the official North Sails dealer in Trieste – explained Barcolana marketing manager, Federico Prandi – we have been able to sign the agreement with the head office in record time. Only a great brand could guarantee such a result, enabling us to offer high quality products to our boat owners and Barcolana brand collection on sale before and after the event”. The polo shirt of the 45th Barcolana will be white, for the joy of collectors, with blue royal cuffs on the sleeves and collar. Same colour for the sailors’ sack together with black. North Sails has designed it as a wonderful rucksack that is given as a gift to all boat owners upon entering the race.


“Being able to change the merchandising partner so quickly – concluded Prandi – is the evidence that great international brands are interested in our event: with this partnership we have the chance to claim the international value of the Barcolana”. North Sails, is indeed made in USA, and was created in 1958 by the brilliant and extraordinary Olympic champion Lowell North: his philosophy is unique, “the sea is my land”. “The agreement signed with Barcolana – as written on the official North Sails release – is in line with its brand identity which was born from the sea and is deep rooted in the world of sailing. Values such as tradition and passion for the sea and sailing, but also firmness, originality, and innovation are shared by both North Sails and Barcolana”. For this important event, North Sails has created a new polo shirt and a sack with the logos of the regatta, choosing white and royal blue as main colours. Polo and sack will be the gift for all boat owners entering the race and will be on sale at the North Sails shop inside the village.




he new social dimension of the Barcolana comes through Facebook, and through an innovative website. This year, thanks to partners such as CrowdM and Insiel, the Barcolana has invested in web communication to get closer to the sailors and its public. The website of the event - is brand new, in terms of graphic design, created by CrowdM from Giampaolo Amstici poster, and in terms of use thanks to Insiel who developed a project compatible with tablets and smartphones, so that you can keep an eye on the website when sailing. In addition to this, CrowdM, the “digital skipper” of Trieste’s regatta, has created a series of Facebook applications enabling spectators and sailors to share the Barcolana and win wonderful

prizes. These initiatives will start on 1st September and last until November with many prizes up for grabs, among which a boat, an Elan 210. All social initiatives linked to the Barcolana are grouped under the name “My Barcolana”, underlining the central role of competitors and spectators participating in this unique regatta with all its first-rate fringe events on land and on water. The social dimension of the Barcolana continues on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest: images, tweets and details of the regatta can be shared with web 2.0 tools. Moreover, the You Tube channel of the race is already available, containing hundreds of videos from the past editions. The 45th Barcolana will be broadcast for web viewing on YouTube and on

We want to exploit the power of social media to promote this extraordinary event – said the CEO of CrowdM, Silvio Stafuzza (obviously a sailing lover) – we reinterpreted in a digital way the logic which made the Barcolana famous all over the world, by adopting a social strategy aimed at stimulating word-of-mouth and experience sharing among participants”.





The “find a cruise/crew” lands on Facebook and it’s MyBarcolana



THE CONTEST OPEN TO ALL REGATTA LOVERS partnership that continues and evolves. Again for the 45th Barcolana the partnership between the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano and Elan is confirmed.

What do you have to do to win this beautiful boat? Consistently with this year’s social strategy, you have to take part in the contests about the Barcolana and its spirit. Details and rules will be posted on Facebook and on the Barcolana website, but the mood of the social events scheduled is one: how would you describe the Barcolana? What would you tell us about it? How would you represent the unique spirit of this regatta? By posting the best images, stories and videos, involving your friends in a race supporting the true Barcolana, you will be able to stand out, to stand in the “short list” of the best regatta supporters and

WITH ELAN ALSO INTERNATIONAL PROMOTION Not only the chance to win a beautiful boat: in 2012 and 2013 Elan and the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano have promoted the passion for sailing of the Upper Adriatic, the passion that enables us to organize the Barcolana in Trieste and Elan shipyards, a few kilometres away in Slovenia, to create high-quality yachts. The international promotion strategy brought Barcolana and Elan together at Paris Boat Show in 2012 and at the Boot Dusseldorf in 2013, the two main nautical events in Europe where you can meet sailing experts and journalists. Further promotional actions will take place in September 2013, to present the event in France and the UK, and to involve even more Elan boat owners to take part in the regatta. There are already about one hundred Elan yachts participating every year.


ELAN 210, THE PRIZE 6.38 metres long, designed by Rob Humphreys, presented in February at the Boot Dusseldorf, the main nautical fair in Germany. Small but ensuring superior sailing performance, Elan 210 wants to skim over the sea. She is a “democratic” boat: inside she provides enough space for a small cruise, outside it is perfect for running with a stronger breeze. It can achieve a good speed in light air effortlessly with its nice gennaker waiting to be hoisted and have fun when cruising or be competitive when racing. The twin rudders provide a winning look, extremely aggressive for such a small boat. Elan 210 does not require a berth and can be easily towed. receive a prize: weekends in Trieste for the sailing race, places on board to watch it live, official polo shirts and many other prizes among which the final jackpot, the Elan 210, that will be awarded during the regatta prize giving ceremony. The aim of the “MyBarcolana” contest, created like the boatsharing initiative with the partnership of CrowdM, is that of collecting the essence and the experience of the Barcolana from the hundreds of thousands of people who crowd Trieste every year for the event. What is the best way to describe it? Your personal way: text, images, videos and stories because you just have to be there. You will then be able to tell everybody about your unique experience. Join us with Elan on our social networks, and in particular on Facebook, the main tool for the contest.

Notice to all boat owners: host Italian and foreign sailors who are looking for a boat and you will be a star!

his year, Barcolana boat owners will have another chance to make their regatta unique, share the experience of this event and meet new people. The “Boatsharing project started at the beginning of August, on the Barcolana Facebook page, it is an application created by CrowdM which enables boat owners looking for crew members to meet sailors looking for a boat. For the first time the traditional “find a cruise/crew” goes through Facebook, becomes social and it is a way to renovate the spirit of the race. Why host someone on board? To win wonderful prizes (all those who take part in the Boatsharing project and share on Facebook the Barcolana initiatives can win an Elan 210!), and to offer sailors and sailing lovers who cannot take their boat to

Sailing lovers:

here’s how you can find a boat! You do not have a boat but you would like to take part in Trieste’s race? You have a boat but Trieste is too far away? Or: you are a novice and this regatta is your dream? Or finally: you are an expert skipper but you haven’t found a boat yet? This year, it’s easy and fun to find a place on a boat for the Barcolana! Thanks to Boatsharing, available through the Barcolana Facebook page you can look for a boat and win wonderful prizes! How? Go to Barcolana Facebook page (, look for the Boatsharing button and post your request through our application! Add as much information as possible, pictures and text to make your profile interesting for boat owners. You can choose boarding free of charge or with a fee, and choose up to 10 boat owners who will read your profile and decide whether to host you on their boat. If nobody picks you, you can apply again and look for other boats. You can do this until Thursday before the regatta. Do you want your Barcolana experience to last longer? Then why not help sail the boat to Trieste before and after the race? The Boatsharing service includes this option as well, just write it down!

BOATOWNERS: HERE’S HOW “BOATSHARING” WORKS Go to Barcolana Facebook page (https://www., and look for the Boatsharing button! After clicking on “I like” you will have to provide information about your boat and on the type of places available on board either free of charge, in the name of seafaring hospitality, or with fee if you charter boats or simply you want to share the expenses. The boat owner choses his/her guest: after filling in the short questionnaire (regarding type of boat, dimensions and place offered) the boat owner will receive through Facebook a maximum of 10 requests from which to choose. If none of them is the right person then the owner can wait for more candidates. Contacts will be direct through the same Facebook application with a system of messages enabling the owner to know his guest before deciding to host him/her on board. Both boat owners and candidates when interacting through Barcolana Facebook page will compete to win an Elan 210, a boat offered as prize by the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano and by Elan. Trieste because they come from far away places, the chance of experiencing the Barcolana: when they go back home, they will talk about the race, but also about the wonderful crew that hosted them! “We ask all boat owners – explained Vincenzo Spina – to share with us the organization and the pride of hosting in Trieste for the Barcolana sailors and sailing enthusiasts who wish to take part in this event. If every boat owner hosted one person on board, we would have over 1800 tourists more, a new international public which would make the regatta even more interesting”. How does it work? In a very simple way: every boat owner can offer places on board either for free or not, only for the race or also for the days before, with the possibility of sleeping on the boat. The boat owner decides what to do and will choose from the candidates available.

In case the data indicated in the entry form should result incorrect following measurement, the Jury may consider such event a “Gross misconduct”, and consequently take action according to ISAF RRS 69, notifying the event to the competitor’s Federation. The Race Committee may require a measurement of the overall length of the yachts before or after the race on its own initiative or after having received a protest by a competitor.

16 - Liability The Organizing Committee, the Race Committee and the Jury will not accept any liability for material damage or personal injury that may occur at sea as well as ashore in conjunction with or prior to, during or after the regatta. Competitors participate in the regatta entirely at their own risk and responsibility. The fact that a yacht has been admitted to the Regatta does not make the Organizing Committee responsible for its crew’s sailing ability. The safety of the yacht and its crew is the sole responsibility of the yacht owner, his representative or the skipper, and is not transferable; he/she has to do everything possible to guarantee the sound condition of the hull, mast, sails, engine and all other material and equipment; he/she must also guarantee that the entire crew is capable of participating in the race and is aware of the use and location of life-saving equipment. Each race participant is responsible for his/her own safety and is advised to wear a personal flotation device adequate for the conditions during the race. The responsibility for a boat’s decision to participate or to continue racing is hers alone.

Sailing safely

how the Gulf changes when sudden Bora gusts sweep the sea. Start racing only if the crew has enough experience with strong gusty winds, often with heavy rainfall that can drastically reduce visibility. Avoiding collisions Collisions may occur at the start and when turning the first mark. Use fenders and boathooks to avoid collisions. Do not use your hands to push other boats away.


he Barcolana is at the same time simple and tough. Since so many boats take part in the race, yachtsmen must follow some simple rules for their safety and that of the other participants. Keeping safe is the prerequisite to fully enjoy the spirit of the Barcolana. Here are some instructions written down with the collaboration of Trieste Harbour Office. Flares accessible at all times. Every boat should have a fair number of flares (hand smoke), which are very useful to enable rescue boats pinpoint your position. Seen from the outside, boats look much alike and in case of an emergency it is hard for a rescue boat or helicopter to find out which yacht is in distress. Burning a hand smoke is a simple and effective solution to reduce rescue time. Other equipment

Safety harness/lifebelts and GPS

In case of distress, rescuers will ask you to wear safety harness and life belts. They are the most important piece of safety equipment and they have to be within easy reach. The safety harness, besides keeping you on the boat in case of bad weather, enables rescuers to spot the boat asking for immediate assistance since they have bright colours. The rescue team will also ask you the GPS coordinates and your route. Even just a handheld GPS is very useful on-board. You can find this tool on smartphones as well. Look at the weather

Set out only if you feel confident of the crew and the boat

The Barcolana is a unique regatta. Although it takes place in a stretch of sea rather close to the coast, it can be quite demanding. It is held in a period of time characterised by strong Bora winds. Boats taking part in the race for the first time should be aware of

Anchors in the hold For your safety and for that of the other boats, it is forbidden to keep the anchor on the bow roller and the outboard motor astern. Besides being dangerous, the boat breaking this rule shall be penalized according to the Notice of Race. How does the Safety at Sea Unit work? During the Barcolana coordination of rescue teams is carried out by the operations room at the Harbour Office which includes also all other police forces and bodies providing assistance to competitors. The Harbour Police coordinate the safety at sea unit which includes men and means of the Harbour Office and Coastguard, State police, Carabinieri, Financial Police, Fire Brigade, Emergency 118, with the help of the Italian Red Cross and the Civil Protection of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, with the participation of the Slovenian patrol boat and auxiliary coastguard. In order to ensure assistance to all competitors, on Sunday morning there are over 25 rescue boats at sea together with teams specialized in rescue at sea operations of the Italian Red Cross as well as the medical staff of System 118. Moreover, helicopters fly over the Gulf of Trieste and can immediately use recorded images of the race course to rapidly manage rescue operations at sea. How to ask for help The captain or skipper of a boat requiring assistance during the regatta must call via radio channel VHF/ FM 16 (call and emergency channel) providing, as precisely as possible, (hence the importance of having a GPS on board and turned on) his position and a detailed description of the boat (hull colour, deck colour, sail colour numbers identifying the boat and any other distinguishing mark) so that she can be quickly identified. In addition to this, the skipper should also provide information on the crew’s health conditions, the hull’s and mast conditions as well as the manoeuvring capacity of the boat. These elements are necessary for a better coordination of rescue teams.

Village / The city changes for the race



ver 300thousand people take part every year in the great party of the Barcolana. Next to the 25thousand sailors at sea, the stars of the regatta, the event attracts a large public that comes to Trieste participate in this great sailing festival. It is the “Barcolana Village”, along the waterfront of Trieste, the centre of gravity of the party, the place where sailors meet, the place where you can admire beautiful yachts that take part in the race, where the deepest spirit of the event dwells.

offering typical products from the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, the sailing lover will find spaces dedicated to yachts and nautical equipment”. The Village will be open until Sunday 13 October, well after the end of the regatta, and will develop from its focal points: the Infopoint, run by the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano, and the Barcolana Arena, dedicated to shows and fringe events ashore and to the prize giving of the many regattas scheduled during the week. The “Barcolana on land” consists of many events, from Paper Barcolana, which highlights the cultural aspect of the event dealing with seafaring novels, to the Barcolana Music Festival, the soundtrack of the regatta. And on Sunday the party turns into wild cheering: hundreds of thousands of people crowd up along the waterfront, waiting for the winners; a “standing ovation” celebrates the passion for sailing which brings out the value of this great event dedicated to all sailors.

5-6 October: Optimist and Techno 293 kick off the races



or over ten years the regatta has traditionally kicked off the great festival of the Barcolana. The first week-end of October in Trieste is dedicated to Barcolina, the event reserved for under 18 sailors and the “entry classes” of sailing, i.e. the classes that enable young athletes under 14 to start racing on Optimist dinghies and under 17 on windsurfs in Techno 293 class. Over 400 Optimist Class sailors are awaited in Trieste, from all over Europe: the Barcolina formula is one of the most beloved with 5 events on water in a weekend with many prizes up for grabs and excellent hospitality on land in the new location near Barcola small harbour. This year again the young sailors will have their own village close to the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano Clubhouse. Techno 293 class windsurfers will instead race in front of Piazza Unità, in a really unique site for them: only once a year they can use the Pier Audace (Molo Audace) as base and race right in front of Piazza

dell’Unità. The Techno 293 programme, organized by the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano in collaboration with Windsurfing Marina Julia, entails two days of races near the San Giusto Basin, SUP (Stand Up Paddle) events in case of flat calm, and a prize giving ceremony with the Optimist sailors in Barcola, on Sunday afternoon. Spectators can watch the windsurfing races from the Pier, which offer a breathtaking show especially if the Bora wind blows.

The Barcolana Village will open on Wednesday 9 October: “This year’s objective – explained Federico Prandi (Prandicom – Trieste), Barcolana marketing manager – is that of strengthening the nautical character of the Village: several ship yards have already booked areas in the Village, we want to integrate hospitality and food&wine tasting with the promotion of the territory and with a greater number of products and services dedicated to sailing, maintaining the entrance to the Village free of charge. Besides the sponsors areas and the stalls





5-10 October: the highest jumps and the fastest speeds



ot only races and rounding marks: sailing is going through a true revolution that could not be missing in Barcolana. It’s sailing for speed, for the perfect jump on a windsurf or kitesurf, pure fun and extreme sport. After 2012 debut, the great show along the waterfront of Trieste is back with “Barcolana Fun” taking place in an extraordinary location with Piazza Unità d’Italia as backdrop and along Molo Audace. From Saturday 5 October to Thursday 10 October a small army of expert and reckless kitesurfers e windsurfers will wait for a special green light: Bora gusts in San Giusto Basin and in front of the old breakwater. A unique event because normally these ‘wind machines’ are not allowed to perform near to the coast, especially in a port area: under the supervision of the organizers, and thanks to the collaboration of the Harbour Office, during the week before the Barcolana, when the Bora will blow, kitesurfs e windsurfs will be the stars just off the shore. Last year it was a great success: 38 knots speed reached by windsurfers, while kitesurfers enchanted the public

10-13 October: who will be the King of the Wind?


with incredible jumps over 2 metres high in San Giusto Basin. Among the stars of the event there are the famous kiters from Cape Verde who will leave the waves of the Atlantic Ocean to come to Trieste and challenge the Bora wind, the typical wind that blows in Trieste. In October it starts blowing at dawn on sunny days. Organized by the association Barcoletta, in collaboration with the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano, it is an event you cannot miss.


rom Thursday 10 to Sunday 13 October Elan 210 will be the stars of the King of the Wind – with ten crews coming from outside the region and thanks to the collaboration of the boat owner Duvetica and Compagnia della Vela of Venice. This is the second edition of the regatta dedicated to yacht clubs from outside the FVG region that are friends of the Barcolana, who wish to take part in this special competition, which includes regattas, night races in San Giusto Basin and the Barcolana. “This event – explained the president of the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano, Vincenzo Spina – enables us to invite sailing clubs to the Barcolana with whom we have a special relation but are far from Trieste and would thus not be able to take part with their boats: in this way we are able to easily spread the


spirit of the Barcolana in the name of a true seafaring friendship, providing national and international promotion”. Crews from Sicily, Montenegro and the Isle of Malta have already confirmed their participation in the King of the Wind; the boats will host crews from the different sailing clubs and will race against the boats of the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano and of the Compagnia della Vela of Venice. For spectators the King of the Wind event will be the chance to watch a series of spectacular regattas from land, with expert crews battling it out during the day and night, a 4-day championship inside Barcolana. There are 10 boats available: all sailing clubs can apply, just contact the Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano and become ambassador for Barcolana!



12 October, in collaboration with Yacht Club Adriaco



he partnership with the Yacht Club Adriaco and Prosecco brand is back for the Barcolana Classic, the regatta dedicated to vintage yachts: same course and format, an event with a great sporting and cultural value. “Over the years – said president Spina - Barcolana Classic has been able to create its own space: vintage yachts pay homage to tradition, satisfying our desire to remember and preserve the essence of seafaring tradition. Collaborating again with the Yacht Club Adriaco provides a greater value to this event”. Barcolana Classic – regatta and parade of the boats in San Giusto Basin – is to be held on Saturday 12 October starting in the late morning: the boats will parade along Molo Audace before starting the race. The prize giving will take place in the evening. On land, during the days of the event, people will be able to walk along the docks of the Yacht Club Adriaco, open to the public for the occasion, and admire an open air maritime museum displaying the oldest yachts of the Adriatic, beautifully restored.






arcolana by night means Jotun Cup, the great challenge between Ufo 28 monotypes, preceded by Elan 210, Meteor and 2.4 boat races on Friday 11 October evening. UFOs are eagerly awaited: around 10 tough Ufo 28 teams will battle it out in a challenge that has been going on for 15 years with the support of Jotun. The course and rules are the same: start at 7 p.m. Ufo crews start the battle when the evening breeze blows, between Molo Audace and the waterfront, around the marks for about 30 or 45 minutes, depending on the wind. The winner is the boat that after a fixed time has completed most laps. A competition that starts on land, with boatowners trying to set up a highly professional crew in view of the challenge: well known professional skippers in Trieste for the Barcolana choose a boat at the last minute and join

the teams that have raced one against the other for the entire season in monotype races. The event takes place a few metres from the shore featuring spectacular and breathtaking manoeuvres with the hulls almost brushing against the docks. Spectators cheer wildly and the teams become the stars of the night with the prize giving taking place immediately after the race, in the Jotun hospitality area, in the Barcolana Village. The Jotun Cup challenge is an enthralling event, it is more like a motor racing circuit than a regatta: racing at night in a floodlit course a few metres from the shore is really exciting for all teams and the crowd lined up along the waterfront or on the boats waiting for the Barcolana can watch a high-level race in terms of energy and competition.

Jotun is the best partner choice for you and your boat Jotun is a leading supplier of antifoulings, primers, fillers and topcoats, offering you peace of mind, assuring high performance and the perfect finish, every time


Visit our stand during the Barcolana event October 5-13th 2013


After the Barcolana you can sail to La Valletta



t the end of Barcolana events, the second record race from Trieste to Malta (La Valletta) will take place on 13 October evening until 14 October at dawn, involving the boats ready to take part in the Rolex Middle Sea Race. The two regattas have started a partnership, which entails the presentation of the Rolex Middle Sea Race in Barcolana (and vice versa), and the participation of a team from Malta in Trieste’s regatta. “The event – said the president of the Svbg Vincenzo Spina – was born thanks to the initiative, the vision and farsightedness of Esimit Europa 2 owner Igor Simcic, who started the challenge last year and set the course for the speed/time record. He also offered the Medot Trophy as a prize. The two sailing clubs organized the


start and the finish line operations and provided the official timing. This year our joint aim - that of the Società velica di Barcola e Grignano together with the Royal Yacht Club of Malta - is to expand the event, opening it to more boat categories and types, with the aim of creating a close link between the Barcolana and the Rolex Middle Sea Race”. The record race will start in a time range between the evening of Sunday 13 October and the day of 14 October depending on the weather forecast: the crews who will take part in the challenge – taking their boat to Malta in view of the Rolex Middle Sea Race – will be able to choose their route along the Adriatic down to the finish line at La Valletta, where the time to sail about 700 miles will be recorded



DISCOVER TRIESTE There aren’t many cities like Trieste. The spirit of this city, charming but at the same time mysterious reflects its being located in a border area, which overlooks the sea from the harsh Karst plateau.


rieste is a jewel of history and elegance kissed by nature, with the colour and scent of the Mediterranean maquis and the strong energy of the Bora wind. Here, in the north easternmost corner of the Upper Adriatic, where great writers like James Joyce, Italo Svevo and Umberto Saba found their inspiration, the Mittel – European atmosphere is overwhelming. It is really exciting to walk through the streets in the city centre admiring liberty, neoclassical and eclectic style buildings and reach the climax in Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia, Europe’s largest square overlooking the sea.

visitors because it offers an attractive mix of styles, cultures and entertainment which ranges from culture, cuisine and sport. The Habsburg buildings stand harmoniously next to Roman remains and 18th century buildings, while the intertwining of religions can be felt by anybody who visits this city: for centuries Trieste has played host to the Greek-orthodox church, the Serb-orthodox church, the Synagogue, the Evangelical Lutheran and the Helvetic Confession churches (the most ancient in town). One of the greatest passions of Trieste’s people is coffee and there are many different ways to taste it. In the city bars every variation has a different name: the caffè macchiato is called “capo in b” (served in a small glass), the cappuccino is a “caffelatte”, while a plain coffee is a “nero”. Today students, old ladies and tourists love to sit in the famous cafés of Trieste: the Tommaseo, the Caffè degli Specchi, the Tergesteo, the Stella Polare, the Torinese, the Urbanis, the Antico Caffè San Marco, but also in patisseries such as Pirona and Bomboniera, which recall over a century of history although being perfectly inserted in the contemporary lifestyle. The desire to go to the beach for a nice swim has remained the same over the years. The sea is right at the centre of the city, bathing establishments are open from early Spring and in Summer bathers and passer-byes enjoy the sunset on the waterfront leading to the famous Miramare Castle, the fairy-tale residence of Maximilian of Habsburg. Its privileged position, right on the sea, offers a splendid view of the Gulf of Trieste and the castle is surrounded by a beautiful park with precious botanical species where visitors can relax in a lush vegetation. The white castle of Miramare is one of the symbols of Trieste and it is the result of that eclectic style of 19th century architecture. The Archduke personally followed the planning of his castle and its large park (over 22 hectares), an English and an Italian style garden, full of rare plants, sculptures and ponds, which gently stretches down to the sea. The castle has over twenty rooms: noteworthy are Maximillian’s study room furnished like a ship’s cabin called “Sala Novara”, the music and painting room, the Chinese and Japanese sitting rooms in the tower and finally the majestic throne room. Sailing enthusiasts coming to Trieste for the Barcolana

cannot miss the beautiful Sea Museum and the Marine Reserve of Miramare, managed by the WWF. Besides architectural and natural beauties, Trieste must be discovered with the palate. From the typical Karst family-run premises called “osmizze”, where you can drink Terrano and Vitovska wines, to the cakes of Slav or German origins, soups such as the ‘jota’, and fish dishes, Trieste’s cuisine must be tasted. In the Karst, after visiting the Giant Cave in Sgonico, the world’s greatest tourist cave, the best thing to do is to go to a farm restaurant or to a typical osmizza which can be found by following the leafy branches hanging along the road. Here you can taste the delicious local products: wines, from Sauvignon, to Chardonnay and autochthonous varieties such as Terrano and Vitovska, cheese made from cow, sheep and goat milk that have strange names and a strong taste: the Tabor, which dates back from the Austro Hungarian tradition and the Jamar, matured for at least three months inside a cave. You must also taste the raw ham of the Karst, the DOP olive oil Tergeste and the local honey. The Karst plateau with its colours and traditions, incomparable tastes and charming nature offers several ways to spend your free time, from the Val Rosandra Nature Reserve with 746 hectares of land crossed by the Rosandra river, the Duino cliffs, rich of traces showing the passage from the continental to the Mediterranean environment, where you can enjoy breath-taking views from the Rilke footpath up to the castle of Duino which dominates the gulf from the top of the cliffs. The picturesque Venetian town of Muggia is also worth a visit, it is rich in culinary and historical treasures. Here the atmosphere of Venetian origins is not only created by the architecture but also by the dialect and traditions, which reveal an intense past shared with the Serenissima. Looking at Muggia from the sea with its 14th century castle, the white

stones from Istria and the coloured houses, you can see a gentle landscape, which harmoniously blends with the green Karst surroundings. Seven kilometres of coastline and a crown of hills frame this town lying between Italy and Istria. Here restaurants mainly serve excellent fish and you can walk through the narrow streets around the wonderful piazza Marconi, or stop in the small port to watch the fishermen at work. BARCOLANA TOURIST PACKAGES
