VelaShow is the first sailing exclusively dedicated event in Brazil, bringing together business, sport and leisure in a family atmosphere, created to make conversations easier and foster the sailing culture in the country.
The event will allow networking with experienced and innovative entrepreneurs who will exclusively put on show their latest releases. The VelaShow’s third edition confirms that the event is consolidated as the biggest meeting for sailors and sea lovers in the country.
In 2023, Ilhabela, the National Sailing Capital, will put together the latest trends, innovations and everything that the sailing sector has the best to offer in relation to products, services and training introduced by the main manufacturers in the sector.
Nationally and internationally known by sailors, Ilhabela was recognized as the “National Sailing Capital” in 2011. The seal represents Brazil’s recognition for Ilhabela’s significant impetus continuously given to the development of this sport.
In addition to hosting major events and nautical competitions, the city hall has also encouraged this sport, offering children and young people the opportunity to learn sailing. The Toque-Toque Channel’s tidal regime turns the island into a privileged place for sailing. Ilhabela is taken as one of the main scenarios for sailing sports competitions.
The regatta calendar is year-wise, which reassures its importance in the world of national and international nautical sports and events.
