    The promotional start of the 2012 Vintage Yachting Games took place during a impressive meeting of the ministries of tourism of several provinces of the Lombardy region in Lecco Italy. In special the Provinces of Como and Lecco are starting a campaign to increase the nautical tourism. For this campaign a large exhibition tent (500+ persons) was setup in center ofpromenade of the lake. 

    On Sunday October 17, Marco Canepa (president of Multilario), Alberto Barenghi (president of our supervisory board) and Rudy den Outer were invited to hold a presentation on the Vintage Yachting Games for the ministries of tourism of Lecco and Como. We had one hour to present our event.

    Our hosts were ”L’Assessore al Turismo della Provincia di Lecco” Fabio Dadati & “L’Assessore al Turismo della Provincia di Como” Achille Mojoli. 

    The presentation consisted of an explanation of the Vintage Yachting Games concept as well as an introduction of the Vintage Yachting Classes, a forecast of the number of participants, countries and continents by Rudy and Alberto. Marco Canepa finaly explained the organizational aspects of the Vintage. The whole of the presentation linked the Vintage to the nautical features of Lake Come and our mutual interests.  

    After the presentation both provinces promised to support the event on several ways. Besides other substantial promises we can use the Villa Monastero for our prize giving ceremony.    monastero

    This villa is one of the most interesting examples of eclectic style residence on the Lake Como. Originally built to accommodate the cistercensian monastery of Santa Maria, first quoted in a document dated 1208. Since 1963 the villa is an international cultural and scientific centre. 

    So we can look back to a wonderful start of the Vintage Yachting Games promotion around Lake image016.jpgComo despite the Dutch weather.
