9. BavAdria Cup



Dear Sailing Friends,

Last weekend the 10 annual BavaAdria regatta took place in the Bay of Kastela. Among the 14 crews, all sailing in equal Bavaria 46 types, there were a number of renowned skippers, including Mate Arapov, Karlo Kuret, Marin Misura and Vasilj Zbogar. Due to a strong NE wind, the two Saturday races were canceled, and only one round took place on Sunday during 4-8 kts wind speed.

At the begining of the regatta, Sailing Club “Mornar” with Frane Arapov as the skipper, took the lead. Arapov’s crew was exchanging the lead with “Marina Kastela” and “Coast Guard” crew throughout the race.

After two hours of sailing, the boat that arrived at the finish line first was “Marina Kastela” with BavAdria base manager Armano Zekan as the skipper. Second was the “Coast Guard” and “Mornar” only came in third. Along with Zekan, the “Marina Kastela” crew  consisted of Capt. Pasko Kolombatovic, Pave Brajcic, Ervin Kuzmanic, Mladen Kuzmanic, Damjan Berket and Boris Bakotin.

After the regatta all the crews sat down for fresh fish and a few glasses of wine and enjoyed the music of “Klappa MP 3”. Then the awards were given out to the best crews and everyone celebrated another succesful and joyfull BavAdria regatta.

Hope to see you again next year!

Your BavAdria Team



Dear friends,

As we have begun with the preparations for the new season 2010, we would like to inform you about our stands at this year’s European Nautical Fairs.

For all of the upcoming please check the table below. We would love to welcome you at any of these fairs and share a chat or a drink with you at our stand.

The first stage of the 65th “Vis regatta” was held on 16.10.2009 during a favorable wind and ideal weather conditions. All competitors started at NE wind 15 knots. About 150 cruisers were taking part and set off in two classes, ORC class starting at 09:00 hours, and OPEN class starting 15 minutes later.

The Marina Kastela crew passed the finish line in Vis in 11 place out of 30 competitors in the ORC class. A strong NE wind was blowing in stern and almost boats were sailing by using the spinaker or gennaker, except for a few minutes during the passage between Solta and Brac.

The second day of the 65th “Vis regatta” was a free day except for the 15 racing boats who took part in the port of Vis.

The second stage of the 65th “Vis regatta” was held on 18.10.2009. The start was moved to the Pakleni Otoci due to the strong NE headwind, which kept the crews working hard all day. The crew of our Sailing club Marina Kastela, with Capt. Josip Berket as skipper, successfully completed the second stage of the regatta in 10 place. This meant that overall Marina Kastela won 12th place in the ORC class, and 5th place in the ORC 2 subclass. The winner of the Regatta was ONE with Karlo Kuret as skipper, in the ORC class, and ANADORA, with Mate Arapov as skipper, in the OPEN class.

Well done!

In accordance with the new law adopted by the Croatian government, we are obliged to charge each client upon arrival in Marina Kastela a tourist tax, payable in advance for the whole charter period. This tax is in amount of KN 7.00 = approx € 1.00 per person /per day. You will receive a confirmation (receipt) of the tourist tax payment, together with the crew list, as well as a copy of the Ministry Decision in order to avoid double payments in other Marinas and ports.

We thank you in advance for your understanding!
