Thousand Islands Race 2020

Rijeka Sailing Club and Porto Montenegro Yacht Club invite sailing enthusiasts to the Thousand Islands Race in September. The race between 1000 Adriatic islands is considered the best offshore course that nature itself has created.

Yachtsmen can choose one of two routes or participate in both. The first stage starts in the historic harbor of Rijeka in Croatia. Races will take place between the islands of Unie, Susak, Premud, Dugi Otok, Kornat, Vis, Lastovo and St. Andria and will finish in the harbor of Porto Montenegro in Tivat, Montenegro. If you are a beginner, we invite you to take part in the regatta and gain invaluable competitive experience.

The regatta will take place in the most beautiful region of Croatia and Montenegro. The distance is approximately 280 nautical miles. This will be a competitive race for the victory. The regatta’s route is among the numerous islands and canals of the Croatian coast which gives teams the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in yacht management and navigation.
