    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, JUNE 1 - The international sailing event uniting Italy and Tunisia, Carthago Dilecta Est, is back this year with some new features that highlight the symbolic value of uniting Mediterranean peoples in new links towards friendship and peace.

    The 18th edition will take place on the Sicilian island of Lampedusa, where the Italian and Tunisian teams will meet, said event organiser Ventotene Sailing Club.

    This year's course is long and challenging on a sporting level, as well as appealing for its symbolic value, running along the Phoenician and Roman routes with sailing once again representing a symbol of the Mediterranean Seas as a "sea open to life".

    The event will begin with departure July 31 from Rome Fiumicino to Ventotene, then proceed to southwestern Sicily's Mazara del Vallo before reaching Lampedusa on August 9, when the Tunisian regatta "Tunisie Sailing Week" from Hammamet will also arrive. The event is open to either crewed or double handed boats, and is organized by the Ventotene Sailing Club, the Ahab Yacht Club and the Lampedusa and Linosa section of the Italian Naval League, under the aegis of the Italian Sailing Federation and Fédération Tunisienne de la Voile. Event organisers also include the Italian Naval League, the Italian Union of Offshore Sailing, the Yasmine Hammamet Marina, the Monastir Marina, and other Tunisian and Italian marinas and yacht clubs.
