Three days of sport, sailing in particular, from 23 to 25 of April in Lignano Sabbiadoro (North-East Italy) with the participation of Càpita, the accessible daysailer unique in the world with inclusive crew on board from the local sport association Tiliaventum.

This participation to the abovementioned not specifically Paralympic competition which is reserved for sailing boats with ORC formula, confirms once again that sports, sailing, sea and wind are for all... and the challenge of dealing with renowned competitors that this important event attracts also from abroad in the Adriatic waters is already a huge satisfaction and a further opportunity to confirm the feasibility of a total inclusion... at sea but also in the aggregative moments post regatta, favored by the accessibility of the Tiliaventum site located in the Marina D-Marin Punta Faro Resort.

Càpita is a high performing sailing monohull designed to be without barriers: it is possible to access on board autonomously with the proper wheelchair, to comfortably manage the helm as protagonists thanks to the steering wheel without rays and to take a comfortable posture thanks to the mobile platform that enables the inclination of wheelchair when the boat is inclinated. There is the possibility to use the steer with a joystick in case of motor limitation to the upper limbs, to enjoy an excellent visibility from a sitting position and thus have a favorable perception of spaces and equipment and to have all the running rigging positioned to be easily usable by any position.

Thanks to Càpita, and within the Sea4All activities promoted by Tiliaventum sport association from Lignano Sabbiadoro it is possible to participate to regattas not specifically paralympic. The satisfaction is even greater in case of reaching prestigious results, such as the 2nd place in the 2021 edition of the "Trofeo dei 2 Golfi", and the 2nd place in the 2022 Autumn Championship; the 1st place in the 2020, 2021 and 2022 edition of the Punta Faro Cup, the 3rd place in the Lui&Lei.

Sea4All is an intense project of continuous activities coordinated by the inexhaustible President Daniele Passoni supported by about 50 volunteers which, in addition to regattas, includes open days, sailing, transfers, courses, information and training activities, participation to the Barcolana, but also kite4all, sup4all, excursions, opportunities and much more throughout the whole year, without any physical, mental nor economic barrier (participation is free of charge), where diversity is considered as a resource and opportunity to build better everyday life for all with satisfying social impacts.

The excitiment is so great in view of the regattas, the crew members cannot wait to show up on the starting line, to test themselves and be able to back with an additional stimulating and reqarding experience that the sport can give.

Sea4All enjoys the patronage of Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, Friuli Venezia Giulia Tourism, Municipality of Lignano Sabbiadoro and the indispensable appreciation and support of Zampa Foundation, D-Marin Punta Faro Resort, Triride, Guidosimplex, Giotto Wine Listener, Tecnolam Belluno, Intras Lignano, Triring, Eurobox, KeepSmart and many others that are always active in the promotion of all these wonderful activities.
