Thousand Islands Race - Adriatic offshore contest announced + Video

'Thousand Islands Race'   
Sailing Club of Rijeka (SCOR) and Porto Montenegro Yacht Club organisers have announced a new race for offshore sailors who are interested in sailing along one of the most pristine coastlines in the world: the Thousand Islands Race. The race is set to take place from 20-30 September 2012.

This new race will be held in two parts: starting on Sunday, 23 September from the historic port city of Rijeka, Croatia, the fleet will leave the islands of Unije, Susak, Premuda, Dugi Otok, Kornat, Vis, Lastovo and Mljet to starboardand finish at the new harbor of Porto Montenegro in Tivat, Montenegro.

Over this distance of about 300 miles, the fleet will face the technical challenge of navigating among the many islands and channels of the Croatian coast and fascinating Boka Kotorska bay of Montenegro, but will be rewarded with the stunning beauty of this region, known around the world for its character.

After a prize giving in Porto Montenegro on Wednesday, 26 Sept, the fleet will then race back to Rijeka on the same course, starting on Thursday, 27 September, with a prize giving scheduled for Sunday, 30 September in Rijeka.

'We see this race as attracting a broad spectrum of entries,' said Zoran Grubisa of SCOR. 'Cruiser/racers may want an opportunity to sail this incredible coast in the company of others, and racers who may want to have a challenge two weeks prior to the Barcolana race in Trieste, or those who may want an offshore race tune-up three weeks prior to the Rolex Middle Sea Race.'



Entries need only be over 9.0 m in length, have an ORC Club or ORC International certificate, and a Stability index greater than 110.

'Even in the short time we've been organizing this, we already have had interest from teams from throughout the region,' says Grubisa, 'including Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, Italy, Greece, Montenegro, and Serbia.'

A fun tune-up race will also be held on Saturday, 22 September to promote the race and give local media some exposure to the event.
