Annals Of Adventure: Cento Miglia…

August 1, 2005

That’s Italian for One Hundred Miles, and it is the name of a sprint race around the famed Lake Garda (the 2004 winner averaged 20 knots). But it really translates as “shredded sails and upside down boats.” At least that’s how I would translate it after looking at the video Alden Bugly (sailing’s Garrison Keilor) found of the race. You can watch it here. And you can subscribe to Bugly’s execellent weekly newsletter here. “Cento Miglia.” Maybe it should also be called “Mille Dollare”…

Crazy Cento Miglia: “Mamma Mia! It’s blowing hard enough to flatten Sophia Loren’s chest…”
