SIBENIK, CROATIA - There were nothing but smiles and positive vibes after the Farr 40 class came off the water in Croatia on Saturday.
The inaugural D-Marin Farr 40 Sibenik Regatta was a real revelation - to all the sailors that participated and quite possibly the sailing world as a whole.
D-Marin Mandalina Marina more than lived up to its billing as a five-star facility, the Island Zarin Channel provided a top-notch racing venue while the local residents offered a warm welcome.
"Everyone was absolutely delighted with the event as a whole. They not only enjoyed the sailing experience, but also the ambience and energy of the venue," said Geoff Stagg, president of the Farr 40 Class Association. "There was not one skipper I spoke with who did not love this location."Read More

SIBENIK, CROATIA - The Farr 40 Class Association has come to Croatia for the first time in its illustrious history and the early returns are quite favorable. After two days of racing in the D-Marin Farr 40 Sibenik Regatta, owners and crews are raving about the venue.
Competition is being held on the Island Zlarin Channel, which delivered epic conditions on Thursday. Boats and crews were challenged by consistent 15-20 winds and rough seas while completing three races on Quantum Race Day.
"It is a pleasure to be in Croatia and the venue is spectacular. It is no surprise to me because I already knew this place was amazing," said Vasco Vascotto, tactician aboard Enfant Terrible. "I predict this particular location has a great future for hosting important regattas."
