International Regatta Croatia
International Regatta Croatia, powered again by Heineken, will this year take place between July 28 and 30, with participation of more than 30 yachts. The new date of the race has helped attract participation of several new crews, mostly domestic. The list of confirmed international participants for now includes fast and pretty Asilina III (TP52), the last year’s winner TOto, the lovely Tutta Trieste and Dušan Puh’s team Adriatic Europa, in addition to domestic crews Polet and Generali. The event will begin July 28 with a Heineken BBQ party in Nautika Centar Nava in Split. The next day, crews will tackle the route to Maslinica on the island of Šolta in two runs, and on the final day, race to Bol on the island of Brač. The long list of sponsors other thank Heineken include One Key Gin and Abnormal vodka, and the entertainment will be provided by rock band Jam IT. The race will end with the trophy ceremony and another party, at the famed Zlatni rat beach.
