The Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour is in full swing as it arrives in Calabria’s welcoming Vibo Marina for the fourth leg of the prestigious sailing circuit. The Tour invites the public to its Race Village, offering an exciting blend of elite sailing and ocean experiences that showcase the best of Italy.
In the recent Naples-Vibo Marina leg, the City of Genoa crew (Matteo Sericano and Giovanni Licursi) clinched another triumph, following their previous win in La Maddalena-Naples stage.
Light winds prompted a course reduction, with the finish line set at Capo Bonifati lighthouse. The City of Genoa’s victory places them in the overall lead, with a narrow one-point advantage over Acone Associati, while the City of Taranto team holds the provisional third position.
During the Tour’s stay in Vibo Marina a preparatory day for the WASZP and Wingfoil classes was held, where sailors familiarized themselves with the racecourse while the beach provided a natural grandstand for spectators to witness the remarkable skills of these young talents.
In the Naples-Vibo Valentia leg, the Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour 2023 also showcased the “Discover Where You Port” project by ENIT (Italian National Tourism Agency), featuring seventeen itineraries inspired by historical routes. For this leg, the organizing committee strategically overlapped sections with the Rotta della Sibilla (Route of the Sibyl) between Nisida and Capo Palinuro, as well as the Rotta dei Normanni (Route of the Normans) between Sapri and Tropea.
Besides the thrilling competitions, the Race Village of the Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour awaits enthusiastic audiences with an enticing program including culinary delights such as a show cooking session by chef Giuseppe Romano , as well as captivating musical performances like the concert by Mario Venuti.
The Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour 2023 is meticulously organized by Difesa Servizi S.p.A. and SSI Events, with the invaluable support of the Marina Militare.
