We
have two weeks at the start of the fourth edition of the Challenge
Trophy " Ignazio Florio ," invitational regatta organized by the Yacht
Club Favignana.
Four
days and four nights in the name of sailing, entertainment and music
will enliven this beautiful island of Sicily as it prepares to record
yet another boom in attendance.
To
40 boats will participate in Challenge Trophy cab , length not less
than 9.50 meters , from all over Italy , who will be engaged in numerous
tests : inshore and on buoys , in the fantastic scenery of the islands
Egadi , the stretch of water between
Favignana , Levanzo and Trapani.

The
current holder of the Challenge Trophy Ignazio Florio is Tesorone
Joseph , who won last year with his boat " The Eighth Sin" .
But this year there are many who aspire to the prestigious trophy.
Among these , two leading names of Italian sailing , bearer of the Yacht Club Favignana : Matteo Miceli and Andrew Fornaro .
Matteo
Miceli , the navigator record holder for crossing the Atlantic on a
catamaran 20 ´ , will be the skipper Hanse 37 " Saudade " and will carry
a competitive crew , which also disabled the Sicilian Fausto Firreri .
Andrea
Fornaro , probably in Olympic Star Class , will be at the helm of
"Aurora" , the Canard 41 which has a victory at the prestigious Giraglia
Rolex Cup this year.
The event will conclude Saturday, September 19 with the award ceremony and the gala . In
addition to the scope Trophy, will go to the winner Smart car , while
the second and third place respectively will be two checks amounting to
6,000 and 3,000 Euros .

The
event will , as every year , representatives of the world´s political
and institutional and important characters of the show that will give
life to the island a wonderful evening full of glamor and sport.

"It
´s the fourth year and we are always growing - said Chiara Zarlocco ,
President of the Yacht Club Favignana - and I´m sorry for those boats
which we had to say no. Besides the 40 entries have a physical limit
that only with
the
expansion of the port of Favignana may be exceeded . This race , along
with the Targa Florio Sea race held in may, is leading to Favignana new
tourism target and definitely high. arrivals and requests for boat
rental medium /
large
rose in August and, simultaneously, also the target of tourist flows of
Favignana. Moreover, some reflection of this increase we have in this
beautiful early September. welcoming - the president Zarlocco - will be
gorgeous as ever
and
this year we also have the full availability of the trap completely
restored. it will be an important asset for the island and for all Egadi
and I see her in the near future also the ability to host sailing
events even more important and what is my
dream : a great school of Italian offshore sailing . "
