“It was a great event – said the president of Svbg Mitja Gialuz – together with the Sirena we organized a national regatta with the aim of giving young girls and boys the opportunity to compete on our race course in total safety, on land and at sea. It was very positive to find again the competitive spirit, the sporting spirit in our clubs and to see many young people ready to compete at sea on a splendid and training boat, such as the 420. Svbg and Sirena have been working in synergy for years, and this regatta will remain the our symbol of recovery. As soon as possible we will start the competitive activity of the high ground, and in this case in partnership with the sailing club of Muggia. To get out of this difficult period we have to team up with all the sailing associations of the gulf: to work together and share the know-how of each one, to build a high-level sailing season ”.
