For sea and sailing enthusiasts and for those who do not want to miss a one of a kind show, the event takes place annually in Trieste on the second Sunday of October. It is the Barcolana, the international sailing regatta with the largest number of sailboats racing in the world.

The event is characterised by over a week of celebrations both on land and at sea and annually it turns Trieste into the European capital of sailing.
