Only skipper that won Adriatic race three times (2008. and 2010. with Veliki Viharnik) Dušan Puh and main supporter of Adriatic Europa sailing project Gašpar Gašpar Mišič with Adriatic race trophy - Pripela.

As dawn was breaking in calm near Prilovo after 225 Nm Gingolina and Shark were just few meters apart. Shark entered Vis bay with 200 m advantage over Gingolina, but by choosing northwest side of bay Gingolina was able to pass stationary Shark just before finish line. Regata was concluded by local crew Manderosi.

Fourth yacht in finish and winner of group 1 is Srna V - they sailed excellent race. They were followed by My May that was in a duel with Srna almost all race, then Sea Ya - first multihull in the Adriatic race, and then Munjek F - decision to sail north of Korčula proved costly at the end...


Ola skippered by Toni Bulaja - Vepar  is third and first in group 2. Better part of the fleet had encounter with few local strorms near Palagruža.
 
Austria One with skipper Kurt Zatloukal is second across finish line. Imoca 60 was unable to challenge Dušan Puh lead, but strategically they might have sailed the best course by sailing south of Mljet where they gained on the rest of the fleet.

Winners of 10th Adriatic race during their final approach to finish line. Dušan Puh and his crew almost broke the race record, but light wind near Vis was decisive - AAG Big One with skipper Marko Murtić after ten editions of Adriatic race is still record holder.


ADRIATIC EUROPA FROM KOPER WITH SKIPPER DUŠAN PUH WINS 10TH ADRIATIC RACE !
more to follow....


12:40 We have just received information from Adriatic Europa that their tracking is not working, and their position is only 15 Nm from Vis. They are sailing at speeds around 10 knots. Race record that after 10 years still holds AAG Big One is hanging in balance !

Forecast at the moment is predicting light mistral, but in Vis there is moderate scirocco. Conditions between Palagruža and Vis at the moment are quite unpredictable. It is possible that Adriatic Europa emerges from tracking less zone with big advantage i try to break course record, but also there is possibility that they struck the calm, porovidig a chance for Austria One and Ola....


12:00 We are expecting emergence of Adriatic Europa from zone without tracking signal around Palagruža. Austria One and Ola in tactical move to cut Dušan Puh advantage have approached Palagruža from more southern route than usual. Meanwhile My May (on picture) is still fighting Srna V. 

Brand new day!


After a long upwind leg to Dubrovnik, in one hour after turning around sv. Andrija Adriatic Europa is already 15 Nm along the way to Palagruža. Austria One is turning sv. Andrija in second position and is holding few Nm lead over Ola...

0:40 Adriatic Europa is one Nm from sv.Andrija leading the fleet with 8 Nm advantage over nearest competitors Austria One and Ola. Kurt Zatloukal by sailing south of island Mljet outwitted Vepar and his crew...


Situation at 18.00 h. While Adriatic Europa is extending her lead, Ola and Austria One are at the moment in battle for second position. Course north of Korčula was choice of Munjek and Sea Ya, it is yet to be seen if their choice was a good one. At the back of the fleet there is an duel between Gingolina and Manderosi... 

After the great start by Ola, Dušan Puh in racing debut of Adriatic Europa takes the lead and is first around first mark. Just after the mark Kurt Zatloukal is passing Ola and follows Slovenian crew on the way to Dubrovnik....
