Thank you to the members of the twin association APTRA of Arcachon (F) for being able to partecipate in Velaraid the week immediately after their event “Les Escales du Bassin d’ Arcachon 2018”, and despite of all the “adversities” involved in their coming to Italy.

Thank you, Jacques for staying in touch and maintaining the relatioship and sharing the idea of the twinning “Lagoons’ XChange”.

Thank you to the members of Polo Nautico for the understanding of the discomfort that every event creates in the area of San Giuliano, with cars and trolleys and boats arriving on the quarry, and the launch and beaching of the boats.

Thank you to the crane operators for their essential help, the extra work and the patience.

Thank you, Sonia and Valerio, for the welcome dinner; 
Walter of the Pescotteria for the prizegiving dinner; 
Cosmopan and Market Vignotto for the sailing lunches.
