June 3, 2019 - Last weekend, Lustica Bay hosted the Lustica Bay Cup races for Laser and Optimist sailing classes. The regatta was organized in cooperation with local clubs - YC Delfin Tivat, YC Lahor Kotor and YC Jugole Grakalić Herceg Novi, who welcomed the idea to open the new sailing field, especially since their competitors, except international competitions, do not often have the opportunity to check their skills outside the aquatics of Boka Bay.
The weather conditions were maximally hand-picked by the organizers, so sailors enjoyed sailing with a wind of 6 to 10 knots and sunny days at the challenging regatta field in the Trašte bay. During the three days, there were six regattas in all classes - Optimist, Laser 4.7, and Laser Standard.
The winner of the Optimist class in general placement was Pavle Musić; second place was Petar Klakor, both sailors of YC Delfin. YC Lahor's sailor, Romina Racković won 3rd place. Romina is the winner in a girl's competition, her teammate Nina Strahinja is the second and the third is Nikolina Klakor from YC Delfin. In the category up to 12 years, the first is Petar Klakor, YC Delfin. Second place was Andrej Drakulović, and the third was Marko Vujović, sailors of Kotor's Lahor.
In the class of Laser 4.7, Nikola Golubović from Delfin was first place. Danilo Jončić, YC Delfin, is in second place and on the third is Miloš Vujović from Lahor.

, at the moment one of the most successful Montenegrin sailing competitors, is first in the Laser Standard class, the second is Stefan Anđelić, YC Delfin, and Luka Ognjanović, YC Lahor is the third.
"We are very grateful for the long-standing support and the brilliant household and the Lustica Bay Cup organization. With this regatta, we have been working on a higher level of cooperation. Lustica Bay Infrastructure and Logistics have made sailing available in the Gulf of Trašte. Having the field to the open sea for us is a significant training option," said Ilko Klakor, YC Delfin's coach and Montenegrin national team selector.
"The Regatta Field is of a great challenge for our sailors, and they enjoyed these three days of sailing. We are looking forward to starting cooperation with Lustica bay, and we believe it will be of mutual pleasure," said Filip Petričević, president of YC Lahor and the Lustica Bay Cup Regatta Committee Chief.
