Blitvenica for two
Challenge of first semi-offshore double-handed race for Seascape18 class gathered 3 crews that set sail on 60 miles long course from Sukošan around Blitvenica lighthouse and back to Sukošan.
See breeze played along and experienced crews of Kristan and Mojca on SLO 001 and Ratko and Nina on CRO 025 followed closely by Metod and Martin on CRO 004 surfed down the Zadar channel with average speed just over 10 knots. Fastest sailed mile had average of 11,7kt!!!
Ratko and Nina beat SLO 001 on Blitvenica rounding by just few boatlenghts so it was obvious that the race will be decided in dying breeze over night. The way back had proven itself as war of the nerves which was won by Kristian and Mojca that were first to catch the breeze next morning. CRO 025 followed within the hour and shortly after Metod and Martin on CRO 4.
Race proved to be great succes among the crews and we are looking forward to 10+ fleet fighting to beat the record and competition the next year.
