The 200 boats competing in the Trofeo Bernetti – Trieste’s sailing regatta since 1972- woke up to rain on Trieste gulf and beyond as the predicted cold front came in overnight.

A week before the grand 53rd Barcolana regatta, Trofeo Bernetti sailing race, organized by Società Nautica Pieta Julia, took over Trieste’s coast with 200 boats competing for the historic trophy. 

With the start in Marina St Giusto and the finish line in Sisitiana, the regatta which started in pouring rain, was slow but full of technique and zest. It’s a stark contrast from the day prior with clear blue skies being replaced by cloud cover and minimal wind.

As one of the organizers put it, “only teams with grand passion and dedication can compete in these weather conditions.”

The winners of the Trofeo Bernetti (which was cut short due to weather conditions) are Slovenian crew Way of Life, followed by Portopiccolo Prosecco Doc and Fanatic, followed by Arca Sgr.
