  • 20th Charity Regatta Rotary Club Zadar

    Dear Rotarian friends,

    Approaching the 2Oth Charity Regatta Rotary Club Zadar we hope you could have a crew ready that will join us in Zadar and together set sail towards Kornati. If you have not gathered the crew can be the individual involved in one of our crew. Please consider this invitation to your meeting and present it to your club friends but also we will be grateful if forward to other clubs, and friends of your district.  All friends who have been sailing with us and there were really very much please them to provide us with photos or impressions and to gather as much material for a monograph that will be issued to commemorate the 20th race. 20. Charity International Rotary Sailing Regatta will be held from 01 to 2 October 2016 in the Kornati archipelago, organized by the Rotary Club Zadar. This event is a great opportunity for a pleasant two days of sailing, informal socializing among Rotarians and friends.  The regatta will be sailed between Biograd and Betina, in the Kornati archipelago surrounded by numerous islands.

    Friends who do not sail will allow the plane ride and the whole regatta and monitored from a motorboat. We hope that the special appeal of wine tasting & charity auction from our environment will be favorable for the refined. All Rotarian friends who prefer to ride bicycles than sailing invited to join, but for them prepared a special program. All crews coming from remote areas are welcome to the boats a few days after the race ends meet with the waters of the central Adriatic, which will take place Kornati and Sibenik surroundings. This race, like all Rotary action, in addition to gathering, propaganda sailing and Zadar County, has a humanitarian component. Revenue from contributions of participants and race sponsors will be donated to help the rehabilitation center for children with special needs in St. Filip i Jakov, a place between Zadar and Biograd.
