    We’ve shortened the charter time, lengthened the races and added spinnakers – bring on the competition!

    Unlike our famous Croatia Yacht Rally, the FIRST Regatta is a little more serious when it comes to racing.  Get the blood pumping in this action packed week of racing through some of Croatia’s most stunning islands. Bring your travelling companions along to view all the action from our luxury spectator yacht, and after each race spend the night on land in boutique accommodation. Enjoy a fun-filled regatta program each night, plus plenty of time to soak up the history, people, food and sites of Croatian culture.

This area averages over 2,600 hours of sunshine per year and has an impressive chain of immaculately clean full service marinas with water, electricity,  super markets and laundry facilities - it really is hard to beat.
