On Friday, June 24th, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Croatian rowing club Marina Kaštela. The moment when, 20 years ago, a group of enthusiasts from Kaštel, led by Captain Joško Berket, founded the rowing club under the slogan “more rowers, less smokers“ was the beginning of the sports and social program that exists even today.

During the past 20 years, almost 1000 kids have passed through the rowing club. Some of them stayed with the club in the roles of coaches, members of the Board and of a club president. They won a total of 18 gold medals at state championships and a bronze medal at the European championship.  From the very start, the companies Marina Kaštela and Bavadria have been the main sponsors of the club ensuring not only the financing, but also the logistics needed for the club’s operations.

The club’s birthday was celebrated in the same spot where it was created – on the Kambel square Polantana with a big party: the concert of Marijan Ban and Diktatori, with free food and drinks for all guests. Guests from all rowing clubs in Dalmatia joined us, as well as the representatives of the Rowing Association, Vukovar Rowing Club, former coaches and club presidents, as well as the local guests. All of us wished the club lots of luck in the upcoming years.

The fourth and final game was the make-or-break game for the Mladost Marina Kaštela volleyball team. They secured a victory and defended their 5th Croatian champion title!

The Marina guys managed to completely disarm their toughest competitor, Mladost from Zagreb, with a solid score of 3:0. This is how the team trained by Ivan Rančić has once again asserted their quality and shown everyone that they are simply the best team in Croatia.

Our women’s volleyball team was also successful at the Croatian Volleyball Championship as it has won the excellent second place.

We at Marina Kaštela and Bavadrija are proud to be a part of this success story. We are also proud of the fact that Kaštela has been profiled as the centre of Croatian volleyball. Congratulations to all our volleyball players for an excellent season!




After four days, the most important nautical fair in Austria and the neighbouring region – the Austrian Boat Show – Boot Tulln, has ended. 380 exhibitors from 18 countries presented their novelties to 48,246 visitors at the sold out fair representing an increase of 3% compared to the previous year.

“The conclusion is that our booth had many visitors constantly coming to see us between 10 am and 6 pm. We carried on some interesting conversations and we would like to commend the Tulln fair team for organizing and implementing the fair. Of course, there was no lack of Dalmatian specialties such as candied orange peels, caramelized almonds, home-grown dried figs, Dalmatian wine, prosciutto and cheese, as well as salted anchovy fillets in olive oil.

We have also proudly presented the start of construction works in our marina. The plans include an indoor swimming pool, a headquarters building, a sailing club… “, explained Albina Zanetti from Bavadria Yachting.

We would like to thank all sailing fans, as well as our regular and future clients for visiting.

We will see you again at Marina Kaštela!
