Black Pearl - Banco Espirito Santo with Russel Coutts during the regatta. For 40 years the Barcolana has been the regatta for everyone. From huge sailing yachts to small boats, from professional yachtsmen and women to the passionate amateur, the regatta is a celebration of the sea and full of competitive spirit. Some of those taking part in the race sail boats which boast the latest marine technology, with ever-larger sails to overcome Trieste’s dead calm and canting keels to fight against the Bora, Trieste’s famous wind. Whatever the weather, the event is always eagerly awaited on the annual date of the second Sunday of October. Every one of the two thousand boat owners and boats that take part in the Barcolana has a different tale to tell – but they are all brought together by Trieste’s yearly race, situated in the gulf where the Mediterranean meets the centre of Europe. The race will take place for the 40th time this year on 12 October with many events on land and at sea aiming to involve the entire city, guests, competitors and many tourists during a week totally dedicated to sailing, both for young and professional sailors, great champions and beginners. In this edition: 1913 boats Winner: Alfa Romeo - NZL80. Neville Crichton (Owner and Skipper)
