October 23, 2018 - Sailing Club Porto Montenegro will host the prestigious world-wide RC44 regatta, scheduled from 10 to 14 April 2019.

The RC44 is a lightweight construction made entirely of carbon, with a powerful sail construction designed for strong winds. The Boka Bay Aquatics perfectly fits into all the predispositions of the regatta and will boat great scenes for this sailboat format, as it is emphasized in the PMYC announcement.

What is certainly interesting about this regatta is the rule that 50% of the crew of each sailboat is professional sailors, with the status of the American Cup or Olympics, and 50% amateurs in this sport. This rafting tour allows everyone to be mentored by the best sailors and learn "finesse" in winding down.

The RC44 Porto Montenegro Cup 2019 is a fantastic opportunity to start a nautical season on the Mediterranean - after Porto Montenegro, the race will continue on several more attractive sailing destinations in Europe, including the picturesque Rovinj in Croatia and the attractive island of Marstrand in Sweden, The full agenda of the 2019 RC44 Racing Tour will be announced in the coming months, according to the RC44 Sailing Association.

It is a pleasure to start the sailing season in Porto Montenegro with the regatta of this caliber - Sailing Club Porto Montenegro has been working intensively on an attractive calendar of regattas all over the years, and it is a pleasure to be the host of world sailing names, said Porto Montenegro Marina Director Tony Browne.

The RC44 is a professional racing boat, designed by the sailor Russell Coutts, who has won the American's Cup five times, and the nautical architect Andrej Justin. The sailboats are a shiny construction, with hull shapes, and with all the professional performance that is ideal for sailors. Its innovative and technical design is an exciting new hybrid sailing challenge. 

“We wanted to include the degree of complexity so that the owner could experience the high level of sailing, and a unique experience," explains Coutts.
