Trofeo Portopiccolo Classic - June 1st/2nd, 2024

Founded in 1982 by a group of sailing enthusiasts, the Associazione Italiana Vele d’Epoca (A.I.V.E.) aims to preserve the historical, artistic and technical heritage of vintage yachts launched before 1950 and classic yachts launched up to 1975.
AIVE supports the research and conservation of nautical traditions, their history and the construction technique of wooden or metal pleasure and racing boats.
AIVE spreads the culture of maintenance and restoration to preserve the originality of boats, restore the structural solidity and the historical and aesthetic value of yachts of yesteryear.
Last year, a collaboration agreement was signed between AIVE and the Italian Naval League aimed at promoting joint cultural and dissemination initiatives relating to sailing and supporting recreational practice as a supportive and inclusive tool for youth training, encouraging young people to opportunities to board at sailing rallies and regattas on vintage boats and the possibility of getting in touch with the owners.
