Listening to the news this morning about the fraud at Wells Fargo bank reminded me of a similar incident that took place 35 years ago. I had just arrived in the US and was working at Hood Sailmakers. We had chosen Hood to be the sailmaker for our Whitbread Round the World campaign. This was early 1981 and my friend Skip Novak and I had found a German banker to fund the build of a brand new Frers maxi for the race. The boat was being built at Palmer Johnson in Wisconsin and Skip was there overseeing things while I was in Marblehead overseeing the build of the sails. It was all good; until it wasn’t.

The territorial associations in the mountain regions are organizations which aim to improve their area, connecting towns physically near one to the other, thus having similar characteristics and needs. There are lots of territorial associations in the Italian mountain regions; in Veneto the most frequented are the ones in the Dolomites, among which we remind the Magnifica Comunit di Cadore and the Comunit Montana Valle del Boite, where youll be able to spend your holidays in the Dolomites mountains in the beautiful San Vito di Cadore.
The seasons in the mountains go one after the other, each one offering specific activities to which the amateurs dedicate themselves in the period they waited for during the whole year: you can breathe fresh air and the spring and summer walks, pick mushrooms during the autumn and ski in the winter. The magnificence of the Dolomites, in particular, attracts tourists and mountain lovers thanks to their uniqueness: many people, in fact, check the offers for their mountain holidays in order to spend their skiing holiday week in the Dolomites.
The rock formation of the Dolomites is due to the accumulation of shells, algae and corals, formed about 250 million years ago, when the area was wet by the sea: hundreds of meters of accumulations which, under their own weight and thanks to their internal fluids, transformed themselves into rock, which came out when the African plate and the European one colluded. Hence, the last minute offers in the hotels, apartments and other accommodations must be seized to admire the beauty and uniqueness of these mountains: its a chance to immerge in the beauty of these mountains which offer unrepeatable views and fill the eyes with their magnificence.
Choosing to spend your skiing week holiday in San Vito di Cadore, in the Comunit Montana Valle del Boite, youll be able to admire the beauties of the little and welcoming mountains town, which counts about 1700 inhabitants. We can remind two churches in the town, the Pievenale and the Defence Church, built respectively in the XII and XV century: while in the first you can see an artwork by Francesco Vecellio, brother of the famous Titian, in the latter you will find an apse in which the Hapsburgs invasion is represented.
The interest for San Vito di Cadore, of course, is not due only to the beauty of the town, which is anyway very appreciable, but also (or, for some people, mostly) to the natural richness which surrounds it: the wintertime sports attract thousands of skiers each year, who choose it ass their destination to immerge in the beauty of those mountains also finding a receptive organization ready to satisfy the requests of the tourists.
Hence, Dolomites are an unmissable destination for the winter holidays, be them the Christmas or New Years Eve or a skiing week holiday to relax a little bit: they are among the most beautiful mountain destinations, and they must be included in your destinations to be visited…if you still havent!
