Are you ready to return to the sea, to have fun in complete safety?
The right occasion is the first leg of the 2022 TAG Heuer VELACup circuit, in Chiavari, capital of the Gulf of Tigullio, on the weekend of May 7/8. Two days in which, in one of Italy’s most beautiful gulfs, dozens of boats compete in two regattas/sailings with a fascinating coastal course bounded by the Sestri Levante peninsula and the tip of Portofino, skirting the Santa Margherita Ligure bight.

A regatta reserved for boats from the ICE Yachts shipyard also takes place on May 7/8. The boats will take part in the TAG Heuer VELA Cup by participating in the regatta within the regatta, thus entering both rankings.

It is based in Chiavari
, in the efficient and convenient Marina Calata Ovest, which offers free mooring to boats arriving from “outside” and are not residents of the Gulf of Tigullio.
The city of Chiavari, n hosts the award ceremonies on Saturday (from 7 p.m.) and Sunday where, complying with all anti covid regulations, the winners can be celebrated. There will be many, because at the TAG Heuer VELACup, “almost” everyone wins. And the prizes are prestigious, starting with the splendid TAG Heuer Aquaracer watch that will be awarded to the winning boat in the handicap ranking.
Therefore, it will not necessarily be the largest boat that will win it. This is all thanks to our formula for evaluating who performed best, regardless of the type of boat. And by its size.

The TAG Heuer VELACup on May 7/8 is also a great reason to spend a weekend visiting Chiavari, its “carrugi” and ancient arcades, its historic stores, and its precious beach.

If you feel like sailing for two days take part in the VELA CUP CHALLENGE, it will be Saturday and Sunday with coastal routes and sailing for fun and healthy competition.
