RegataCarniolaDear Commodores, Friends and Sailors,

Slovenian organizers of Rotary Regatta Carniola  has issued the invitation for the 9th International Regatta Carniola – see attached. The regatta will take place on May 27th until May 30th. The start will be on the island Murter (close to Zadar or Šibenik) in the Middle Dalmatia, Croatia. The sailing route will be to the islands of Kornati, one of most beautiful archipelago of Adriatic. This year we will visit really very good cultural sites and culinaric restaurants. We can expect many surprises and a lot of fun. We would be very glad, if we could host you or your fleet members!

The Invitation is attached, but you can find all information also on the regatta web site:  

There are application forms for sailors and for complete crew teams also booking of boats at .

Also the archive of photos from previuos regattas are published on one site here

As always we do promote the participation of individual sailors to join the mixed international crews, but there will be also limited possibility to hire own boats for national teams.Just hurry up, since the regatta is limited to 19 monotype boats. The limitation is due to the maximal capacities of the berths and restaurants.

Looking forward to see you there,

Sincerelly yours
