Post by eziogianni » Wed Apr 06, 2011 3:55 pm

Dragons are arriving at the Yacht Club the Circolo Nautico Al Mare di Alassio for this weekend Alassio Dragon Week, 8-10 April 2011. The regatta closes the Hiver the Dragons, the French Riviera Dragon winter series, organized by Cannes Dragon International, a series that touches Cannes, Juan les Pins, Monaco, Sanremo, and of course Alassio, between October and April of the following year.

The Italian Dragon regatta season will continue with the Coppa Alberti, the Alberti Cup in Portofino, part of the Rolex Trophy 13-15 May, and then move to Viareggio for the first of the City of Viareggio Dragon Cup 28-29 May. Naples will host some 20 Classic Dragons, 29 June to 3 July 2011, in a first event totally dedicated to these wooden beauties and where the Eduardo Pepe Gold Cup will be awarded.

After the summer retreat, the Dragon racing season will restart in full in Torbole for the Hans-Detmar Wagner Cup, 13-16 October, to move a week later to Porto Maurizio, Imperia, for a totally new event, the Partnership and Ernesto Quaranta Trophy, 21-23 October.

In summary, dear Dragon sailors, there will be plenty of Dragon sailing in Italy. thus, mark your calendars and join us for these events !
