The TAG Heuer VELAFestival is the place where enthusiasts and exhibitors finally speak the same language: the passion for the sea and sailing. Because it is not a fair in an exhibition space but a party in the heart of a real port, in an atmosphere that enthusiasts seek, rarely finding it.
And it is not just a boat show but a party reserved for true enthusiasts and the "outside saloon" is inside the saloon. The TAG Heuer VELAFestival is born because in their ideal "port" enthusiasts find, discover, know everything that satisfies the passion for sailing. The protagonists are boats, accessories and sailors presented by those who know them well. Because in this ideal harbor on the ground you will also find the space to stop and chat as in a yacht club, in front of a good glass, a seafood dish, without spending a fortune.
The TAG Heuer VELAFestival is a mix of beautiful boats from 2 to 30 meters; accessories , clothing and sails to buy directly on the stand; services for boating and Mediterranean tourism at 360 °; marine exercises and sailing school for adults and children; major events such as the TAG Heuer sailor award ceremony with meetings with legendary sailors; videos and films of exciting sea stories. But the party will not only be on the ground and on the quay. At sea, for the fourth consecutive year, there is the VELA Cup (last year with 206 boats at the start), a sailing event where boats of all kinds can be compared, from three meters upwards, simply declaring the overall length and the distinction between "cruising" and "regatta" classes.
