Riva / Rabac
About the event:
13th sailing cruiser regatta
The best sailing cruisers crews from Istria and Kvarner will show their skills in taming the wind and waves in front of the Rabac coast. As the Labin miners once with their solidarity managed to create Labin Republic, the same values of unity are passed on nowadays by the regatta competitors who achieve their victories using skill, agility and team spirit.
In the 18th and 19th century, the picturesque bays of Rabac, Sv. Marina and Prtlog were anchorage sites for wooden sailing ships, whereas today the seamen skills and centuries-old maritime tradition of this area are transferred by fast boats.
