The 20th “Fiumanka” sailing regatta finishes in good spirits despite low winds

It’s been twenty years since boats first made sail in the Fiumanka race. At the time, few could have predicted that Rijeka would have a regatta like the Fiumanka, let alone that it would remain successful for two decades! 

The Fiumanka has become a high-profile meeting point for yachtsmen, businessmen and the media. By navigating the seas of media, it has reached far beyond Croatian borders and become one of the leading sailing events.

Marking its 20th anniversary – much like our very own Aqua Maris – the Rijeka regatta, held 6–9 June 2019, once again showcased all of the beauty of Rijeka Bay, its port and open arms, and above all, a sense of community and good fun! 

Despite the lack of wind, it has once more fulfilled the expectations of its numerous participants, among whom were the JGL team – Mate Poropat, Marko Sinčić, Kristina Nežić, Martina Rahelić, Renata Miculinić, Ana Đorđević, Tea Jelača and Vladimir Maleš.
