The feast dedicated to the birthday of the most beautiful and valuable ship of the Navy VCG starts on Saturday, August 11th, when a special "Jadran" voyage around Boka bay is scheduled for all specially invited friends of the ship. The sailboat will sail from the promenade Pine in Tivat at 11.30 am which will be followed by a convoy of smaller ships from Krasici. Then they will all head towards the strait of Verige before which they will be greeted with the sirens and water cannons by fire brigade vehicles of the Protection and Rescue Service of the Municipality of Tivat, while the fire brigade of Porto Montenegro will greet them at sea. 

Passing through the Verige, the ships will make a semicircle around the island of Our Lady of the Rocks, and then sirens will greet the town of Perast. In the Dražin rt the separation of ships is planned on the left and right from the "Jadran" with mutual greetings and photographs, and all these activities will be followed by the media from the sea and air in video and photo recordings. During the show on "Jadran", there will be a sales exhibition of specially prepared photographs of this ship in large format on canvas.
