"Šibenik Waves" Festival and the 13th Šibenik Cruiser Regatta


Every year, to celebrate the St. Nicholas holiday, the Val Sailing Club organizes the Šibenik Regatta – a three day event dedicated to the sea, sailors and boats. The event will take place from Friday, 30th November until Sunday, 2nd December 2012.
The general sponsor of this event is the city of Šibenik enriching the town's cultural and tourist offer.
The Šibenik Regatta takes place in the port of Šibenik's waters and guests can have a good view of it seen from the waterfront or maybe from some of Šibenik's fortresses. This is precisely what makes it so different and interesting. The competition consists of a number of sailing boats contesting in a small and undisturbed area like the port of Šibenik, sailing up and down the current created by the Krka River mouth, practically "at an arm's reach" for spectators from the waterfront who contribute to the attractiveness of the competition and select this regatta as one of the most special and favoured amongst sailors.
The image of regatta sails against the backdrop of our white stone town thrills all those lucky people who have the chance of witnessing it. It is the motif of numerous successful photographs and postcards that have been sent around the world. The regatta regularly attracts more than 50 crews and over 400 sailors from throughout Croatia and abroad.
