VELAFestival is a mix of super beautiful 2 to 30 meter boats, accessories, clothing and sails that you can buy directly at the stands, services for boating and 360-degree Mediterranean tourism. You will also find practice exercises and sailing school for adults and kids, major events such as the "Sailor of the Year" award ceremony and meetings with legendary sailors, videos and films of exciting sea stories.
The parties won't be just ashore and at the dock. At sea, for the fourth consecutive year, there is the VELA Cup (last year with 206 boats at the start), a sailing event where boats of any kind can compete, by simply declaring length and category ("cruise" or regatta").

The party won’t be just ashore and at the dock.

We will spend the rest of the day among the stands of this big festival, all dedicated to sailing.
In the morning, we sail to the north to reach the Monastery of San Fruttuoso, where you can swim and relax on its little beach or have a walk around to enjoy the fresh air in the bars that overlook the sea. It is possible to visit the Abbey of San Fruttuoso, ancient dwelling for fishermen and pirats until it became propriety of the Genoese princes Doria. You can visit the whole monastery with its Cloister, the Capitular Hall and the Church.
In the early afternoon, we head for Portofino, enchanting Ligurian town where you can visit the Brown Castle and its park full of rose gardens and flowers, or have a cocktail in this exclusive touristic place.
