1st Full Moon Regatta Pula-Cres to Take Place in March 2022

Total Croatia News

Updated on:


The sailing club from Pula is launching a new regatta hoping for it to become a spectacle of international renown that will draw a bigger crowd with each passing year.

As announced on their website, the 1st Full Moon regatta will kick off in the port of Pula, with the start of the race scheduled for March 18th. The route as planned is approximately 80 nmi long and will take the crews around Susak island and onwards, to the finish line in Cres port.

In case of adverse weather conditions several options will be considered, such as shortening of the route, delaying the start until early morning, etc. That being said, Delfin Sailing Club is keeping fingers crossed for favourable weather conditions so that everyone eager to participate can embark on a moonlit adventure from Pula to Cres!

They plan for the new regatta to be a fully fledged manifestation and have thus prepared a cultural programme together with a special surprise before the start of the race. A creative challenge has also been announced: Delfin Sailing Club is inviting all lovers of sea and sailing, regardless of age and profession, to create a work of art inspired by the regatta. You can photograph, film, draw, paint, sculpt or in any other way create something, as long as the work features the JK Delfin logo and the slogan ‘Pula the city of sails’ (Croatian: Pula grad pod jedrima). All submissions will be published online, and the best works will be awarded at the sailing night manifestation in December 2022. Rules and conditions of the contest are to be announced.
