"Scrolling through the list of members, it really makes sense to read certain names" says Roberto Lacorte, in the double role of vice president and CEO of the Tuscan nutraceutical company PharmaNutra SPA, main sponsor of the event with his brand Cetilar®, and president of the Yacht Club Repubblica Marinara of Pisa, the Tuscan association that organizes the regatta together with the Yacht Club Punta Ala and with the collaboration of the Yacht Club Livorno, the Port of Pisa and the Marina of Punta Ala, as well as the important support of the SLAM partners, Rigoni di Asiago and Acqua dell'Elba. "If the weather conditions help us, it is likely that this year's record of 16 hours and 25 minutes set by Ourdream will be beaten: there are really fast boats and in the month departure, we are still waiting for some high-level arrival among the bigger hulls, also because now the 151 Miglia is an important stop of the Mediterranean Maxi Offshore Challenge, the circuit organizes given by the International Maxi Association ", emphasizes Lacorte.
To date, it is worth mentioning the presence among the members of many boats from 60 'in length and up - Pendragon, Itacentodue, Atalanta 2, Mister A, YOL, Magic Rocket, Lupa of the Sea, Vera (ex My Song), Durlindana3 , Mister A, Ars Una, SuperNikka - a number never touched in previous editions, as well as smaller but no less' bad 'hulls such as Endlessgame, Altair 3 or the 40' oceanic Enel Green Power. "There is really a lot of quality, a sign that the 151 Miles is perceived more and more as the most important regatta of the year, a recognition that rewards our daily commitment and a winning formula" concludes Lacorte.
