The second season of Persico 69F will begin April 27. With the closure of The Foiling Week, the organisers of the circuit announced the dates and some locations that in 2021 will be protagonists of the innovative circuit that until now has had more than 150 sailors in three months of activity.

It will begin in Malcesine: the Grand Prix 1.1 and 1.2 will be from April 27th to May 9th. Afterwards, the circuit will move to Porto Cervo - where the Persico 69F will debut already in this season, in November - where the races will be in Grand Prix 2.1 and 2.2 between 5th and 17th of July.

Before the third stage, in August the Cup will step aside for the 'Revolution' - the event that offers a table format - and in two weeks has 40 teams on the water. The first week, devoted to under 25s, will be from 15th to 20th of August, and the second - with no age restrictions for teams - from 22nd to 27th of August. This takes place on Lake Garda.

September will bring back the Persico 69F Cup: the location for Grand Prix 3.1 and 3.2 has yet to be determined, but these events are scheduled, respectively for 7-12 and 14-19 September. The last stage of the season will be in Trieste, on the occasion of the Barcolana.

Then the Grand Prix 4.3 is from 28th of September to 3rd of October, Grand Prix 4.2 from 11 to 16 of October, and in the middle will be a special event on occasion of the Barcolana53.
