The 65th Vis regatta / 16 – 18.10.2009.
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.
