MATCH RACE SAILING TOURNAMENT COMES TO PORTO MONTENEGRO


Porto Montenegro Yacht Club organises a dual-core Match Race regatta, running from 8-10 June. The regatta will feature J70 sailing boats as the boat of choice for this year’s international sailing competition.

The competition will give local sailors an opportunity to sail among professional European teams - we invite them to compete against other sailors and battle the wind in a three-day regatta which forms part of the Match Race Super League, says Porto Montenegro Yacht Club Manager, Jenny Puttock.

Year on year, the Match Race brings bigger and better names from the sailing scene to Tivat and the wider region. This year, teams from Australia, France, Switzerland, Poland and Croatia have applied for the tournament, joining local teams from Tivat’s surrounding Boka region.

The Porto Montenegro Yacht Club and local team, JK Delfin, will be represented in the Tivat regatta and will have the privilege of competing alongside international stars of the sailing world.

Prizes will be awarded for the top three positions.
