Here’s hoping that the weather for the third edition of “Le Vele di San Ruffino” (“The Sails of San Ruffino”), to take place this Wednesday and Thursday, 24 and 25 April, will be as splendid as last year. Plenty of wind for the competitors sailing their Snipe class dinghies and lots of sunshine for the spectators. Approximately 40 Snipes will take part, manned by sailors at a national level.
It’s anticipated that, as last year, along the shore of the lake will be the CNA tent with artisans selling handmade hates, leather bags decorated with Swarovski crystals and paintings by local artists; Giorgio, our local Venetian masseur, giving free massages, Agostina selling cheeses for Azienda Agricola Fontegranne; the ladies from Monte San Martino selling homemade biscuits; Pasquale Palazzo selling his aloe vera creams and potions.....to name just a few.
This year in Smerillo a number of local companies will have tastings of their products such as meats and cheeses, honeys and jams.
