Correct Answer: Both professionals and amateurs
Info: Part of the appeal of the Barcolana is that it’s open to a wide range of sailors—both professionals and amateurs can race in the main event, and everyone starts at the same time and from the same starting line. While contestants must meet the race’s eligibility criteria, which include having a sailing license (required by the Italian Maritime Authority), the Barcolana is open to sailors of all monohulled yachts, regardless of experience.
