The seventh edition of Conoscersi in regatta, the event organized by the GV3 association dedicated to the sea and sailing, closed on Sunday 9 June. The protagonists of the solidarity sailing days were 227 children from primary schools, associations and family houses in the province of Brindisi.
18 associations joined the events. Sailing courses, boat trips, guided tours of the Alfonsino castle and lessons on marine pollution. Many initiatives in which the participants were involved. The highlight of the event took place on Sunday morning with the solidarity sailing. As many as 38 Brindisi owners, most of them members of the Italian Naval League, have made their boats available to accommodate as many children as possible. 133 guests participated in the sailing. The mistral has guaranteed enthusiasm and excitement for aspiring sailors. The sea for everyone, without borders: this is the message that GV3 has been giving concrete form for seven years through its initiatives. The award ceremony took place immediately after sailing on the waterfront. A race in which everyone has won. The trophies were handed over by the commander of the Brindisi Harbor Master Giovanni Canu, by the second-in-command of the Harbor Master Francesco Stagira, by the commander of the Provincial Command of the Carabinieri of Brindisi Giuseppe De Magistratis, by the commander of the local Police Antonio Orefice, by the president of the Brindisi Naval League Roberto Galasso and of the president of the Sailing Club Teo Titi. “It was an extraordinary edition – says Giancarlo Laus, president of Gv3 – which saw the involvement of hundreds of young people. The arrival of “Baron” the 46 foot sail confiscated and assigned to our association has added a message of legality to our initiatives. This boat used in the past by criminality has been in these days the instrument to give a smile to many “. The sailboat is moored at the pier of the tourist port, hosted by the Marina di Brindisi which collaborates to the event and is a partner of the project “Sailing is life”.
GV3 does not stop, Baron will participate in the Brindisi-Corfu international regatta and will take 4 SOS Ostuni village boys who have been engaged in sailing during these weeks. And already working for the next edition.
