Questi due settori così opposti ma anche così vicini, in futuro, potranno fornire delle fondamenta solide per lo sviluppo dell’economia locale. Perciò, sviluppando maggiormente la reputazione internazionale di quest’evento, sarà possibile di conseguenza, aumentare il turismo sportivo affiliato a questa competizione.

Come tale, Luxwing è tra i main sponsor del ‘Campionato Italiano di Vela d’Altura’ insieme ad altre aziende del territorio siciliano, creando una sinergia che ha portato bellissime emozioni in queste ultime settimane all’insegna dello sport e del mare.
