Dear sailors,

We are happy to announce that Europa Cup Croatia will be held from 27th till 30th of December 2021 here in Hvar.

In compliance with COVID-19 measures, there won't be an opening and closing ceremony, entries and notice board will be only online.

Unfortunately, news for our Optimists is not that good, our traditional Optimist regatta will be postponed for next winter.

See you soon in Hvar, stay healthy!

New Year's Regatta is postponed

21.12.2020 at 14:12

Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia decided to extend epidemic measures that were supposed to end today and even introduced new measures to forbid crossing the county borders until January 8th. To comply with the new decision and protect the health of participants and their hosts we have decided to postpone the New Year's Regatta.

We hope that the epidemic situation will get better soon and that we will be able to announce new dates of the regatta in coordination with the Croatian Sailing Federation and Civil Protection.

Sailing Club Zvir wishes you good health, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Partial lockdown in Croatia

29.11.2020 at 18:11

Croatia is in partial lockdown from November 28th till December 21st. In this period caffe bars are closed, restaurants offer only pick-up and delivery, gyms are closed and only category 1, 2, and 3 athletes can train and compete. Most other businesses work during their usual business hours.

This should not affect New Year's Regata as these measures should expire on December 21st but we will monitor carefully and inform you promptly if there are any indications that measures would be extended.

Online entries for the Optimist class are open for some time and we have 35 registered sailors at this moment, you can send your entry here. From now you can also send Laser entries on our site. Sailors who already sent their entries on the EurILCA site should do it again here.

Changes for New Year's Regatta

21.11.2020 at 18:11

After a lot of discussions and consultation with EurILCA, considering that most of Europe is currently in lockdown, we have decided that the 44th International New Year's Regatta will not be a Europa Cup regatta.

The regatta will still be international and we will welcome all sailors that can travel to Croatia in December. In fact, we have announcements from a few sailing teams that they plan to come to Hvar before the regatta and organize their training camps here.

This year it will be a 3 days event for both Lasers and Optimists, racing will be organized from December 28th till 30th.

There will be some other changes to comply with COVID-19 regulations, we will publish all the details as well as updated sailing instructions in the next days.
