Summer Wind in Izola

Perfect summer sailing for SeaScape 18's at Val Navtika Cup in Izola, Slovenia

For the second year in a row Seascape 18’s were invited to join big keel boats on Val Navtika Cup in Izola. Possibly the last sunny and warm summer weekend gathered Seascape crews which spent their summer sailing around Adriatic and even further.

With light wind up to 6 knots there was plenty of sunbathing, swimming but then, off course, racing also. Three races were sailed during the first day with doublehanded crews in a slight advantage. The last race of the day was traditionally booked for Media Race where one female journalist joins every Seascape crew. For some of them sailing for the first time on a beautiful summer evening made quite an impression. Looking forward to see you girls next year!
SeaScape 18's Start at Val Navtika Cup 2014
When it comes to party, Val Navtika and their partners prepared the perfect barbecue and mojito party with prize giving for all the competitors. No need to mention that the party continued all through the night!
Navigation on Sunday was a pure fun for all the teams – starting from Izola, sailing up towards Piran and then downwind all the way to Koper with finish line back in Izola.

With light sea breeze the doublehanded crews were winning...Tomislav Bašić and Marina Horvat sailing on Boty took the 1st place with just 1 point in front of Dejan Presen and Polona Šafarič Tepeš on Blue Sardina II. Peter Bratuša and Marjan Bogovič on Mais que nada took the 3rd place.

3 person’s crews manage to finish in the middle of the fleet with Jerman family on Lenčina at the 6th place overtaking the season leaders Bohemia Apple with Robert Vyšata, Ondrej Bobek and Jan Vitvar.
