The Barcolana is a historic international sailing regatta taking place every year in the Gulf of Trieste on the second Sunday of October. The Barcolana is one of the most crowded regattas in the world, with a record number of participants – 2101 in 2017. The Barcolana is a unique event on the international sailing stage: on the same starting line expert sailors and sailing lovers race side by side on boats of different sizes. The race takes place on a 15-mile four-sided, fixed mark course.
The 49th Barcolana was won by “Spirit of Portopiccolo”, the second year of victories by Furio and Gabriele Benussi. The winning time this year was one hour 12 minutes, 17 seconds.
