All Day

Pirovac, Croatia


The last VISC sailing event of the year and also the highlight of our sailing calendar is Adriatic Sailing Week. 2019 is no exception, and from 19th to 26th October the VISC will hold the ASW 2019. The location is fixed, the boats are booked, all we now need are the crews and skippers.

This year we’ll be sailing the same Bavaria 40s match fleet that we sailed the past two years. However, Pirovac will be home port this year. Pirovac is just north of Vodice, and is about 1 hour closer than Split, and a great starting point for the Kornati National Park, where we will be sailing to and around.

We are planning both racing as well as cruising days this year. At least 4 races will be held across the course of the 6 sailing days, allowing time for some relaxing cruising to discover the beautiful islands and bays of the Croatian coast and islands.

To spice up the sailing this year all boats will have Gennakers. Gennakers are great fun, although a little more challenging for skipper and crew, but will give the boats much more speed on down-wind courses.

Cost: €500 (members) /520€ (non-members) per person (based on at least 5 persons per boat)

The event is open to members and family and friends of members.

If booking for more than one person please write the name of the other persons in the comments box. Also indicate if you are skippering or crewing.
