Croatia Beneteau First 45 One Design Regatta – 28 June to 6 July 2014

by Maggie Joyce on 18 Dec 2013
Korcula Maggie Joyce
This is an absolute one design regatta with the fleet of ten First 45’s all fitted-out with sails from the same loft in January 2013. The sails are tri-radial cut from spectra. There is one jib and one spinnaker on each of the 10 yachts.

The yachts are stock standard and operate in a charter fleet from a marina near Trogir in Croatia. Each crew will be allocated a yacht at the start of the series using a ballot system.

The one week regatta program will also be unique. There will be three 30 mile passage races between Split and Korcula, taking in the Dalmatian Islands of Vis, Hvar and Korcula, with three additional races around triangular courses at each of these stops.

Singles, couples and complete crews welcome.

On shore accommodation will be reserved by Mariner Boating Holidays as part of a package. Also included is a social program, technical support and professional race management. Transportation between ports of call for non-sailing partners and for gear not required on the race boats is also provided.

Mariner Boating has extensive knowledge of the area from the cruising programs they have conducted along this coast since 2004.

The summer weather pattern will be well established in July with the thermally driven Mistral filling in around the middle of the day to provide winds from west in the 10 – 15 knot range. The Adriatic will be flat, clean and warm so a post-race dip will be a highlight.
