The sea of Porto Venere is often chosen as a picturesque setting for sports sailing events of great attraction. This weekend it’s up to the Mediterranean M32 Series Sailing Race.
M32 Mediterranean Series is the Mediterranean circuit of the M32 fast catamarans , which takes place just a few meters from the coast to allow the public to see a breathtaking race thanks to the spectacular maneuvers of 5 catamarans which entered the race and the unique scenery of Portovenere and Palmaria, to admire the floating pontoon builts for the occasion.
The first start will take place tomorrow Friday 24 June at 2 pm, and will continue throughout the weekend.
Among the five boats in the race there will be one swinging the Monegasque flag, with the exceptional skipper Pierre Casiraghi. The others are Guido Miani, Gabriele Benussi, Mans Holmberg, Riccardo Simoneschi, Enrico Zennaro, Richard Davies, Chris Rast and Manuel Modena.
A major sporting event, so for fans and not: organized by B.Plan Sport, sponsored by the Municipality of Porto Venere and the organizational support of the Sailing Clubs Committee of Spezia.
