The 151 Miglia – Trofeo Cetilar is a regatta that has truly become a classic of the Mediterranean.
151 Miglia is a race open to all, conceived to offer participating crews a chance to show off their unique nautical skills, but above all as an opportunity to experience the full range of emotions that only passion, sport and the sea can summon. A race conceived by sailors and for sailors, propelled by the powers of the sea and the wind.
151 Miglia – Trofeo Cetilar: a unique route, a keen eye for detail. Its key to success is the personal, intimate bond that every participant experiences during the regatta. All shipowners and crews’ different experiences, whether mote technical or emotional, define the race full potential.
As always, we will set off from Livorno, to end in Punta Ala following a route that touches upon Giraglia and the Islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. Our twofold itinerary is both perfect for young crews negotiating their first experiences in blue water sailing, and challenging enough to entice more expert sailors. Every year the 151 Miglia regatta is awaited eagerly by all: both as a starting point and an end in itself.
from €880 / 3(3) days / 1pers.

Livorno - Punta Ala
Yes, of course. There will be an experienced skipper and team members on the yacht. They will give you a role and teach you everything you need to know to be a useful team member and feel comfortable.
Yes, all team members will definitely try themselves in different roles to better understand each other. Standing at the helm is an integral part of training for beginners as well as setting sails, and helping the team during moorings.
As a rule, participants in the regatta live on the yacht. The boat has everything you need for a comfortable stay: nice beds, a kitchen, a shower with toilet. If you do not want to live on a yacht, then you can arrange to stay at the hotel onshore.
The crew decides altogether what kind of food they prefer to eat and makes necessary purchases. Simple dishes can be cooked, usually taking turns. Some regattas offer daily meals and intensive evening program for all crews.
We can make an invitation for a visa, but you need to apply for a visa by yourself.
Most people tolerate some seasickness easily. If you feel that you are starting to feel sick, it is best to get at the steering wheel or tune the sails. Get yourself busy, show your body that you don’t have time to get sick, you have to fight for victory in the race. There are also many quite effective medicines from sickness. If you start taking them in advance, then the probability of seasickness is almost zero.
Before each trip, we organize an online meeting where participants get to know each other and the captain. The captain will answer all your questions. The crew will have a group chat so you can get to know each other before the start of the regatta. Then you will meet in the marina.
The main rule is to dress comfortably and according to the weather. Clothing: • windbreaker and pants or shorts; • shirt/jacket with UV protection (thermal underwear and fleece); • adjustable hat/cap; • gloves. We recommend to purchase a long-sleeved jacket with UV protection in order to protect yourself from the sun and strong wind. Yachting shoes should be: • light, with non-slip white outsole; • with the fixed heel; • with a tightly closed nose. During the sailing without shoes, you can fall or injure your fingers and feet on the deck. There are many protruding parts on the boat that are easy to catch. Unfortunately, even experienced sailors are not protected from unpleasant injuries when they ignore this simple rule.
