Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER.
If you are already a sailor, or you are tending to be, if you like that spirit connected with regattas, racing adrenaline, friendly atmosphere combined with beautiful Croatia´s Adriatic coast, or ,maybe, you just want to become more experienced, or just want to try compete for the first time, then you are on perfect place. We either organize our own regattas, or we can organize for you your own regatta or place/boat in regatta that you would like to compete in.
Therefore we reviewed the calendar of the Croatian Sailing Federation and, among 409 contests this year, selected REGATTAS which are the most important or most interesting, either according to the number of participants, the quality of the sailing boats, the sailing routes or the idea behind the event itself. Some of the regattas we will present here already have an international profile and are well known to foreign sailors coming to Croatia, while others are still relatively unknown, but as we see their idea- they will grow for sure!
The Calendar of the Croatian Sailing Federation (https://www.hjs.hr/index.php/domace-regate/kalendar-2018 ) for the 2019 will be announced on 01. october 2018., therefore please understand that we still don´t know corect dates for next year. We will update them for sure.

If the Vis Regatta is the strongest, Jabuka is the most extreme Croatian regatta, as it takes place in the winter weather season in early November, on the open seas, on the route from Vodice to the volcanic island of Jabuka and back. Although 15 years ago it was first organized as a regatta for few highly-trained crews (just 15 teams took part in the first edition), over time the Jabuka Regatta has become increasingly more popular, and for many sailors it has become something like a holy grail, an opportunity to earn their reputation and prove their sailing excellence.Read More

The idea about the Kornati Cup Regatta came spontaneously in 1984, when a group of sailing lovers emerged with three boats sailing from Murter Island towards Piškera Island. Next year the first regatta in Austrian-Croatian co-production gathered 27 boats and became the traditional one around Easter. In 1988 there were already 118 boats participating in the Kornati Cup and the event has since turned into one of the biggest regattas on the east side of the Adriatic, presenting a unique union of sport and fun, professional yachtsmen and those for whom the final score is not the most important one.
