The friendly atmosphere remained even during the competition itself. The cheerfull crews set sail in their colorful boats twoards the Rovinj peninsula. After passing it, full of competitor spirit, they passed by TDR and the marine heading south and the punta Kurenta where the buoyu for the first turn was set.
The beautiful city seems even more so with the beautiful boats sailing by it.
The regatta seemed nonchalant at first, but to a trained eye it was a real showcase of the excitement and beauty of sailing. Evaluating the wind was key to gaining an advantage.
The competitors were joined by a couple of optimists, kids preparing for the time when they'll sail in the higher classes. They too will have their regatta soon.
The Italians anchored their boats at a beach near the hotel Eden after the regata.
