Topics: 

The Venice Hospitality Challenge, the sailing regatta brainchild of Mirko Sguario, now in its fourth edition, and warmly welcomed by the finest hotels in Venice, was born to promote the tradition of maritime excellence of the Serenissima and relaunch the image of luxury tourism in the city.

On Saturday, October 14th, thirteen maxi yachts will challenge each other in a succession of tacks and marker turns between St. Mark’s Basin and the Giudecca Canal, creating a unique show against the magical backdrop of St. Mark’s Square.
