Next stop: Cagliari.
The next stop for the TP52 Audi MedCup fleet is Cagliari, June 30 - July 5.
Cagliari is famous in sailing terms because of its reliable winds, a luxury in the Mediterranean.
Cagliari is the capital of the Italian province and island of Sardinia. Cagliari, like the rest of the island was first settled by Phoenicians, who called the town Kàralis or 'city of rock', and then by the Carthaginians.
This top sailing location has long been well known to Italians, but possibly less so to foreign racing sailors. The Old Port has historic relevance growing from its strategic value, but from a visitor's point of view, the restaurants, coffee shops and bars to be found in its vicinity are probably a greater attraction. For one week the TP52 show will be added to that.
