  • AN EXCLUSIVE OPPORTUNITYTo Take Part In This World Renowned Regatta
  • LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLEDon't miss the opportunity to take part in this one-of-a-kind, unique event.

We are looking for 16 “interested” sailors who want to have some fun while mixing in some sailing. At times, the sailing may include some attempts at serious racing, and at other times, we may just be laughing, smiling, and enjoying the idea that we are all taking part in a fantastic event—often called the world’s largest sailing race, Barcolana.

What Is The Barcolana?

Barcolana has been described as a sailing race where on the line on race day after a spectacular dance, all boats converge, with little importance to whether they are proud or humble, competitive or recreational; what matters is that everyone goes off as a symbol that sailing is truly for everyone—equal participation, both big and small and as a matter of fact, both rich and poor. The daysailers are alongside the state-of-the-art prototypes, with Olympians and professionals starting beside cruisers and sailing enthusiasts. Barcolana is a symbol of a celebration of sailing.

The Barcolana is a massive sailing regatta that takes place every year in the Gulf of Trieste, Italy. Here’s a breakdown of what makes this race unique:

  • Size and ScaleIt holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest sailing race, with over 2,600 boats and 16,000 sailors participating
  • InclusivenessUnlike most races, Barcolana features a mass start, meaning all types of boats, from small dinghies to maxi yachts, compete together in categories
  • Festival AtmosphereThe race is more than just a competition; it's a ten-day festival with cultural events, side races, and activities throughout Trieste
  • Spectator FriendlyThe city transforms into a natural amphitheater for watching the race. The course is visible from the shore, allowing over 250,000 spectators to enjoy the action

The Barcolana happens annually on the second Sunday of October.
