Appointment in Bellano on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th June for all sailing and water sports enthusiasts in general.
In fact, the Lario in Vela event is scheduled, conceived by the nautical agency NESW of Milan and by the online newspaper Non solo nautica. The goal of the organizers is to relaunch sailing sports, declared at zero risk of contagion by a CONI dossier, and quality tourism in view of the summer, thanks to the breathtaking views that the Lario is able to offer in all its characteristic angles.
A weekend dedicated to sport and entertainment on the Lario, to bring even the youngest ones closer to sailing sports, raise public awareness on issues related to safety, rescue in the water and environmental protection, as well as enjoy a competitive moment with a suggestive race that will be the highlight of the event. The calendar of the two days in Bellano promises to be full of events, created in collaboration with the Circolo Vela Bellano, the ACSN (Associazione Cinofila Rescue Nautico), the Confarca (Italian confederation representing nautical schools and driving schools) and with Safe in the Sea, a brand that for years has been aiming with its events to raise the awareness of nautical users on issues such as training and safety during navigation.
Among the appointments scheduled for the first weekend of June there is ample space for safety in the water, water sports and water tests for sailors, passing through rescue simulations with the help of boats and dogs, and a area entirely dedicated to the exhibition of eco-friendly boats, with electric and hybrid engines with low environmental impact, to encourage a culture of environmental protection already widespread in Northern Europe. The final day of Sunday 6 June includes a sailing in open classes, which can be attended by all the sailors who join the initiative, and an award ceremony.
Lario in Vela is an event sponsored by the Municipality of Bellano. The councilor for Tourism Irene Alfaroli expressed satisfaction for the event: «The organization of events of this nature in a period that we hope for recovery is a positive sign for us. A breath of hope that has involved us and that has been lavished by those who in such a difficult moment, due to the pandemic in progress, did not let themselves be taken by despair, devising a safe event with great value issues, with a well defined of spectators that is well positioned with the tourist offer of the Municipality of Bellano. The partners involved are of absolute quality and well-known on the national scene, and we are sure they will give prestige to our territory».
