Yesterday, the msc sailing team participated in the barcolana 50, our first yacht race at sea. it was an incredible experience, not just the race itself, but everything surrounding it. being part of an event filled with so much passion for sailing and the sea, in the beautiful city of trieste. the barcolana 50 is one of the world's largest regattas with more than 2,600 boats participating this year in different sizes and categories – and everyone racing at the same time! the regatta started at 10.30hs, and it took our team only an hour and a half to cross the finish line! the regatta ended at 18.00hs (six hours later). as for the results, the msc sailing team did extremely well. we came in 48 out of 2,688. and in our category, we came in 2nd position. unfortunately, after the race, we received a protest about the length of the lifelines, a discrepancy between swiss and international regulations, which ended up in the disqualification of our sailing boat – to the heartbreak of our 7 man crew. but that's how sports are sometimes. we participated with passion and dedication – and raced to win. we are very proud of what our team accomplished and the experience was great nonetheless. we are now ready for the next one! πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺπŸ»βš“ πŸ“Έ #studioborlenghi

In trieste, these cute and cool visitors from the local kindergarten just came by to see our sailboat! πŸ’› the #barcolana 50 regatta is on sunday, but there's already a lot going on. behind the kids are three of our crew members: simone, paulo and joel. and behind them our boat, but we don't want to showcase it just yet, apparently... πŸ˜‚βš“ #millecoloriinbarca #msccargo
