Trieste, cradle of tradition
City where mountaneering is rooted...
...together with sailing tradition...
... where our wooden sailboat comes from!
Trieste is the birthplace of the famous alpinist Emilio Comici (1901 - 1940), the first to climb the north
face of the Cima Grande
di Lavaredo and to have opened sixth grade routes
in the Dolomites.
Our city has a long tradition in outdoor sports.
The special caves of the Karst plateau, the beautiful limestone cliffs shaped over the years by karst phenomena
and the powerful and famous Bora wind made the city a paradise for outdoor sports.
Alongside the mountaineering tradition, Trieste also boasts the largest regatta in the world: La Barcolana. Hosted by the city for the first time in 1969, the historic Barcolana takes place every year on the 2nd Sunday of October, bringing together enthusiasts from all over the world.

Our boat Roberta III is a real rarity in the sailing panorama: a 14.5 meter long wooden boat, Roberta III was built for the first time in the late 1800s, to be later restored by the talented yacht designer Pergolis in 1984, year in which the boat has returned to shine among the Trieste waters.
