More Sail Racing comes to Sibenik and Zadar

Farr 40: Winning the Grand Prix One Design Race


Feature Almost since the first Farr 40 was launched in 1997, the class has dominated the unique lane of grand prix, one design racing. After hosting its 18th official World Championship this summer in California, the passion and performance within the class remains strong.

Dalmatia – Sibenik Region Hotels

“Set amid the wild beauty of white karstic rock and the azure sea, the Šibenik aquatorium is a yachting paradise, boasting as many as 240 isles and reefs, each of which holds an interesting feature or two. If you want to meet the best known coral hunters in the Adriatic, set sail for Zlarin. If you wish to see the centre of sea sponge harvesting, then Krapanj is your destination. On the other hand, if you seek an experience like no other, then venture into the open sea and discover the Kornati Archipelago. Two national parks with only 50km between them could not be more different. The Kornati National Park is an archipelago of 89 islands, isles and reefs (numbering in total 152 units) of incomparable beauty which offers the boaters the pleasure of sailing, the formidable sheer cliffs filling them with delight and awe in the same breath.” – Croatian National Tourist Board
