We are pleased to announce that Gran Moravia will sponsor and be the official supplier of GiroVela 2009, the sailing regatta organised by Cino Ricci, the historic skipper of Azzurra.

The regatta, now in its twenty-first edition, has established itself as one of the most popular regattas in Italy: Almost 1,300 nautical miles to sail round the peninsula: from Trieste to Ravenna, then on to Giulianova, Manfredonia, San Foca Lecce, Crotone, Messina, Acciaroli, Sassari, Gaeta and Nettuno Roma, before the finish in Castiglione della Pescaia on July 19. For most people, sailing is a sport that evokes a sensation of harmony with nature, the beauty of the landscapes, the taste of healthy and genuine things, the taste of a challenge to achieve the best possible results through hard teamwork. We thought that it is the sport that is most in tune with the philosophy behind the birth and growth of Gran Moravia. The Gran Moravia brand will be present on all the sails of the competing yachts, and the protagonist of village life and the VIP areas for the media and guests. In addition to this sponsorship, Gran Moravia has decided to sponsor the Giro 34 ore Design yacht called Treviso, which will be manned by the Treviso Sailing Club crew at its first participation in this long stage race reserved for 34-feet yachts which can travel at a speed of over twenty knots. Twenty-four men will take turns manning Treviso during the entire race. The regatta caravan will be followed by two boats equipped by Gran Moravia and by a display of a giant form of cheese towed by an advertising vehicle. Samples of the product and many other forms of product promotion will be offered along the entire route. Our staff will follow the event and will be ready to welcome all our friends who decide to honour us with their presence. Any special requests will be handled by the Brazzale S.p.A. head office in Zanè at 0445.313900, or by Dr. Antonio Rigoni, in charge of the Gran Moravia image during all stages of the event. The event will be followed by: Rai 3, Gazzetta dello Sport, Yacht and Sail, Sky, Radio Capital, RDS, Radio Monte Carlo, and many other news media, local and national televisions and radios. Best regards and ……….. wind in your sails with GRAN MORAVIA!
