Hanse Cup 2015


From Split to Hvar and back

This year’s Hanse Cup proofed that it becomes recognizable brend itself,similar as the Hanse sailing boats became more then two decades ago

The traditional Hanse Cup 2015 was held this year once again in waters around Split from 9th to 12th April. The race was organized by Croatia Yachting company and Zenta yachting club, featuring 14 sailboats with crews from Croatia, Germany, Great Britain, Slovenia and Austria. This year there were unfortunately no Russian crews, known for their love for Hanse sailboats; this was due to the devaluation of the ruble. Still, this did not affect the number of participants, and it was interesting that the entire management of this successful German shipbuilder took part in the race, sailing along in two non-competing sailboats, led by the Chairman of the Hanse Management Board. The boats have, as usual, sailed around the magnificent Dalmatian archipelago, starting in Split, across Vis and Hvar, with a grand finish on the West Coast in Split – which is new in Hanse Cup. Nearly all Hanse models competed in the regatta, divided into three groups, and the sailing was done under the new National Handicap System (NHS) ensuring that each boat has the same chance of winning. The first race started from Split towards Vis in a strong Bora reaching up to 30knots, and continued as the boats passed the Split Gates in a 25 knots Tramontane. The second day of Hanse Cup 2015 the boats sailed from Vis to Hvar in a 15knots Sirocco. The third, decisive day started from Hvar towards Split through always risky Split Gates, in a light south wind, blowing only in the beginning up to 10 knots. In three days of sailing, the crew aboard ‘Ginger’, Hanse 445, with Marko Marinović at the helm had the best results, while the crew of Hanse 415 with helmsman Frank Honan took second place. The third place was won by Hanse 430 ‘Lana I’, led by Marijan Novak. Beside the exciting competition, with the very last race deciding on the winner, the participants enjoyed a rich program on land.
