During the first half of September La Manga will be holding a very important international regatta. The first Open Internacional J-80 La Manga is looking to congregate renowned competitors in the sailing field in this highly competitive tournament. This is part of the La Manga Nautical Tourism Competitivity Plan which is hoping to finance one large event over the next four years. The idea is that the budget then be taken over by an institution or business for forthcoming summers in order for the tournament to go ahead while the LA Manga Plan gets destined for other large scale events which, in turn, would also be aimed at private takeovers. This proposal would go ahead until 2014 with the aim of having at least one of the major four events – or all of them – lasting well into the future.
