Garmin Roma per Due (Rome for two) is a traditional annual Italian offshore regatta.
If you are a beginner, you can participate in the regatta as part of more experienced teams. Experienced yachtsmen will teach you the necessary skills so that you are an integral part of the team.
The first time the regatta took place in 1994, and in 2020 it will take place for the 27th time. Initially, this regatta was held in the double-handed category (two people on board). It is considered one of the most difficult Mediterranean regattas in this category. Since its first release, the Royal Western Yacht Club of England has chosen this regatta as one of the qualifying stages for participating in one of the most complicated regattas in the world - Twostar. Initially, the sponsor of the regatta was BMW. The regatta immediately became one of the most popular in Italy and already in 1995, the organizers decided to open the category "per Tutti" (for everyone) and allowed the participation of full crews (not just duos). Since 2014, you can compete in the "singles" category - Roma per Uno.
Riva per Tutti is a shortened version of the Roma per Tutti regatta (220 miles instead of 530). There will be joint starts, but different distances.

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.
