SimpleRace 2020

You have graduated from the yachting school and received a skipper certificate, so it's time to try yourself at a sailing race. We will take the first step together in a sailing regatta for beginners in SimpleRace 2020!

What is SimpleRace 2020? Simple Race is a training regatta in which novice yachtsmen gain theoretical and practical experience in sailing a yacht. The fleet includes racing yachts and a referee ship. Each yacht has 4-6 novice racers and one chief instructor.

Every day, participants change places and take up new positions on the yacht. Every day the boat is led by a new helmsman. This format allows a novice helper to understand how the crew should act on a yacht during the race. In one day it is planned to conduct 2-3 short (up and down) races if weather conditions permit.

In free time, seminars are held in various disciplines, including:

- Rules for sailing competitions

- Setting sails and rigging

- Sailing racing tactics

The water area of the regatta - Kotor Bay in Montenegro - is one of the most picturesque corners of the planet. Here, on a tiny piece of land, you will see almost everything - monumental mountains, olive groves, crystal clear water, and, of course, wonderful and friendly people.

    Arrival in Porto Montenegro and checking-in on boats

    20:00 Opening of the regatta, meeting the teams at the welcome dinner, we will talk about the starting procedure and give some introductory notes.

    Porto Montenegro is located in Tivat - it is a small pretty resort town on the Adriatic Sea. Montenegro put up a military shipyard Arsenal for sale several years ago. It was bought by one Canadian billionaire. In the territories of the former plant, he created Porto Montenegro - a private port that serves private ships.

    Kotor is a medieval city built by the Venetians. In any convenient place they put up a winged lion - a symbol of Venice. You can find one such lion climbing up to the very top of the Kotor fortress wall - the bastion of San Giovanni. Ordinary people live in the stone houses of the Kotor aristocrats.

    You will enter the city through the main sea gate. At the gate you will be greeted by a bas-relief of St. Tryphon - the protector of the city since the 9th century to this day, and above the gate there is a stone mask of Neptune: it is always better to have the support of several patrons. Walk around the city, along its squares, and narrow streets.

    The history of Tivat originates in ancient times. The founders of the first settlement were either Illyres or Greeks. Since the Middle Ages - the time of Venetian rule in the Bay of Kotor, the medieval stone tower remained in the city - the remains of the summer palace of the Kotor aristocratic family. Nowadays, a medieval summer cottage is used as an open summer theater venue.

    Meline is a town full of sunshine and warmth with almost 285 sunny days a year.

The hospital is an impressive building, which was built by the Venetians in a recessed stone, prepared for the construction of a large monastery church in Savina.

    Herceg Novi meets everyone who heads for the Bay of Kotor. The city stands directly opposite the only sea entrance to the bay. The city is built in such a way that all its houses are on different levels, so when you walk around the city you go up and down hundreds of stone steps. The city has three medieval fortresses - the Turkish Kanli Kula (Blood Tower, a prison for inconspicuous Christians), the Spanish Spaniola, and the Venetian Citadel. According to the local tradition, all of them become theatrical venues if needed.
