Sailing Tradition and Promotion Continued

The traditional fifth Portonovi regatta, “Boka Islands,” gathered sailors from the region in Boka Bay.

During the two-day competition, competitors sailed from Portonovi to Perast islands, i.e., from Portonovi to Mamula.

The event was organized by Portonovi Yacht Club, and Portonovi Marina was the general sponsor.

Portonovi Marina Manager Novica Radojičić said that the regatta gathered a large number of participants.

“We continue in good spirits, just like the previous four years. We had great support from Montenegro Sailing Federation and their president, Predrag Vukčević, as well as Yacht Club Delfin, with whom we have excellent cooperation,” said Radojičić.

He pointed out that the goal of organizing the regatta was to promote and make sailing popular in Montenegro.

“Of course, the participants weren’t only from Montenegro; they came from various countries. The regatta was supposed to be local, but it turned out to be international, having in mind the participants,” said Radojičić.

He believes that all participants enjoyed themselves and that they will keep in touch and continue the tradition.

In Class J-70, the winner was Ivan Gurejev, in front of Grigoriy Gedulyanov and Daria Shamshurina.

The first place in Class 1 was won by skipper Luka Roganović’s sailboat “Bavica,” in Class 2, Robert Farkas’ “Riveto,” and in Class 3, Mato Dabović’s “Stella Maris.”

Skipper Branko Vidović’s sailboat “Oxygen” was the winner in Class 4, whereas the first in Class 5 was Marjan Marić’s “Vagabundo.”

Skipper Dmitrii Gedulianov on sailboat “Auckland” won first place in Class 6, and in Class 7, Alexander Shesherikov’s sailboat “Tiare” was first.
