The Centomiglia is organised by Circolo Vela Gargnano, the sailing club which has taken part in the 32nd America’s Cup with the yacht +39. The first Centomiglia organised by the Circolo Vela Gargnano took place in 1951. It is the tour of Lake Garda and its name recalls the “Mille Miglia” motor race, and just like in this competition, everyone is free to take part.
The first competition, which saw 17 boats at the start, was won by the “6 metre” “Airone”of Umberto Peretti Colò, skipper of the “Compagnia della Vela” of Venice , of the same club as the “Moro di Venezia”.
The second Centomiglia, was won by the German “30mq” called Manjana belonging to the Bavarian skipper Martin Adolf. The “Centomiglia” becomes a world wide known event. In the following years, the most peculiar, different and very fast boats took part in the competition of Lake Garda.
