For those who are planning to sail in Talamone for the next Junior or Senior Worlds

By Alessandro Testa

Talamone is a small village located in the northern part of Costa d’Argento (Silver Coast) of Italy, at the northern end of the big Gulf of Argentario. The Gulf is enclosed by the Argentario promontory to the south and by the mountains of Uccellina to the north, where the Maremma Park is located. The gulf is about 6 miles long and about 2 miles wide. All around, a few miles away, many of the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago: Giannutri, Isola del Giglio, the Formiche di Grosseto, Pianosa, Elba Island.

The Mediterranean climate, low rainfall, the high sun exposure (the highest in Italy), the mountains and characteristics of the surrounding area make the Costa d’Argento and in particular the Bay of Talamone one of the most beautiful and interesting race areas in Italy.
