The love between navigators and Hvar is clearly as strong as ever – in spite of extremely strong south wind and high waves, as many as 34 sailboats with almost 300 crew members made their way to Hvar. By the time the race begun, the wind had subsided, the skies cleared up, and waters around Hvar offered fantastic sailing conditions. 13 ORC Crews and 21 Open Class started. The crew of Marina Kaštela took the lead, with Araman Zekan at the helm. They were by three seconds on corrected time faster than Karlo Kuret’s ‘One’, the smallest boat in the fleet. The second day of the race brought unstable weather. The boats headed towards Vis, with the start at half-way; and the second part of the program was from Vis to Hvar. In the afternoon, the 15 knot Tramontane turned to Bora, which proved convenient for small sailboats. In ORC competition, Marina Kaštela was the first to reach the finish line in real time, but  on corrected time it came last. The winner was One, followed by the Slovakian El Soleta and Mareus. Two spinnakers were planned for the final day. The fleet sailed out around ten o’clock, but the capricious Bora was too unstable and the crews had to wait patiently for the start. In the Open Race competition, Denis Vukas’s Dubrovnik crew was the winner of this race as well as the overall winner, and in the Nauta competition the winner was Najana with Bojan Gerić. In the only ORC competition held, the 15 knots of Bora were best used by the crew of Mareus. They won the final race, becoming the overall winner of the Easter Regatta for the second time. The second place, with the same boats, went to One, and the third was taken by Marina Kaštela. This year’s Easter Regatta was particularly well organized, providing the unique pleasure of sailing the Hvar waters – and for the next, 20th celebratory regatta, the organizers are promising to raise the bar even higher to benefit both the competitors as well as the sponsors.
