PALERMO  •  various venues  •  Ongoing
 

Each year, in May, windsurf world champions gather on Mondello beach to take part in this festival, organized by the prestigious Albaria sailing club. The beach is an ideal stage for this event, which combines top-level sporting events and concerts with the natural environment of the province of Palermo. Music, notably jazz concerts are a historical part of Windsurf World Festival.

There will be a step back in time with fencing, and seaplanes, this is the second time that a fencing match will take place, fencing took place in Mondello as far back as the early 1900's.
The weekend will be dedicated to the classical tall ship race from Palermo to Mondello. There will also be the sailing/golf combination again this year, with a skin game contest on the green and a spectacular Driving Contest.

Mondello lies along the arch of a picturesque bay, between Mount Pellegrino and Mount Gallo, and is the most important seaside resort near Palermo.
