The 18th BavAdria Cup Has Been Successfully Completed


The traditional BAVADRIA CUP regatta organised by JK Marina Kaštela and Bavadria Yachting took place in the Bay of Kaštela on October 27th following the ending of the sailing season.
A total of nine crews on ‘Bavaria 46’ type of sailboats participated in this 18th consecutive annual cruising sailing. They started under the jugo wind with gusts of up to 18-20 knots. The Marina Kaštela crew reached the first buoy and hung on to their lead until the end of the regatta. The Udruga Kapetana, Kapetanija and Slobodna Dalmacija crews fought for the other leading positions. Even though the Udruga Kapetana crew had some of the oldest participants, they exhibited exceptional skills under a very strong southerly wind, while the Kapetanija crew managed to make up for the late start at the first windward mark.
The downwind buoy was positioned far out on the east side so the crews that stuck to the outer side in a position closer to the constantly increasing wind managed to hit it.
During the second leg of the upwind sailing, the Mornar crew on the Farska sailboat showed plenty of tactical knowledge and passed the finish line in the second position in its group and completed the competition in the fourth place in the overall standings.
Marina Kaštela was the winner with the Udruga Kapetana crew in the second place and the Slobodna Dalmacija crew in the third place.
Following the competition, the award ceremony and a soiree took place in the new Sailing Centre and the “Spinnaker “restaurant giving the participants an opportunity to meet and greet.
