April 5, 2019 - The 13th Tivat Regatta UNA Montenegro Cup, organised by JK Delfin and Tivat Company UNA Montenegro, is scheduled for 19-21 April 2019. The cruise regatta on Sunday, 21 April, will be preceded by a two-day regatta for the Optimist and Laser classes. Under the slogan "Be Optimist!" the organisers have joined the three-day feast at sea on the most beautiful navigational route in Boka and the idea to encourage young people to play sports and share the value of sailing. Linking sports and nature, life on the sea and cultural heritage, they are launching a donor action for buying sailboats of the Optimist type, intended for training the youngest in YC Delfin.
The regatta for cruisers, sailing boats, Hobbie Cat and all other types of sailboats will be held on Sunday, 21 April. The main characteristic of the race is certainly its attractive route, which perfectly utilises the challenges that sailors place wind and sea currents at a seemingly calm but unpredictable fjord. Starting at Seljanovo Cape, the regatta course goes around Our Lady of Health and passes through the Ralo Strait, further to the Verige Strait, and after rounding Perast's Islands, it returns to Seljanovo Cape. Since its inception, the Tivat Regatta has remained a significant challenge for rivals at sea but also for receptivity for many sea and sailing fans, who count on a good sailing party. In addition to the great Spring Festival for locals, the regatta has benefited internationally from all segments of good energy and has attracted an increasing number of cruisers year after year.
Club facilities are already open for the participants of the cruise regatta. The registration fee is 10 euros per crew member by Saturday, 20 April at 20:00. Just before the race, on April 21st, you can register until 10 am when the fee is 15 euros.
Since last year, a part of Tivat Regatta is also a competition for the Optimist and Laser class, on which 19th and 20th of April there will be the best young Boka sailor.
The regatta is part of Tivat because it has given the whole city its first summer festival. From the Municipality of Tivat and the Tourist Organization, through the large companies that develop nautical tourism - Porto Montenegro and Luštica bay, to a whole range of small and medium-sized businesses, recognized the potential of this sport-tourism event that relies on tradition, youth and top sports together with sailing as a way of life, but is also a tourist attraction. The newly formed Cruising Section JK Delfin continues to nurture team sailing and the long and trophic tradition of the club, which for two years marks its 70th birthday.
For sponsors and donors, a whole range of attractive packages has been designed, from the logo on the branded equipment received by the participants, to the participation in the video from this year's regatta. Thus partners will have the opportunity to participate in this event's presentation to a broader sports and tourist audience, with the ambition of Tivat Regatta becoming official overturned a new tourist and nautical season in Boka Bay.
The attractiveness of the program on the sea is heightened by the fact that the Tivat Regatta, almost all of its length, can be seen from the shore, which every year, especially in Verige, brings together a large number of photojournalists and amateurs photographers. To their honour, Delfin launches a photo competition on "Sailing", which will result in an exhibition on Sunday, April 21 and prizes awarded to the best, which will be decided by Photo, Cinema and Video Club Mladost Gornja and Donja Lastva. And this year, Delfin and UNA provide interested photographers with the opportunity to record the race from the sea.
The ceremony of the winners in all classes, scheduled for the dock in front of Delfin on 21 April at 6 pm, is followed by the performance of the children's Klapa "Kotorski Grdelini", the Klapa of surprise, as well as the Acoustic Duo Small Talk.
The Info Targets of Tivat Regatta UNA Montenegro Cup will be located on several locations in the city as part of the support provided by caterers, offering more information on the "Be Optimist!" event and the opportunity for everything to symbolically engage in the purchase of at least class sailing boats, Optimists, in which every summer about 50 children master the basics of this healthy sport, which is ecologically, attractively attractive, and some of them will have future interest.
"Delfin is the Primary Naval School in Tivat, like Lahor in Kotor, or Jugole Grakalić in Herceg Novi," quotes Delfin, inviting everyone to their biggest annual party on the sea and coast, the 13th Tivat Regatta UNA Montenegro Cup.
