Regatta to promote archipelago revitalization

time: 20.06.2010. - 25.06.2010.
place: Croatia
organiser: Ars Halieutica
The "Rota Palagruzona 2010" regatta, a cultural and sailing event, will be held from 20 to 25 June in the southern Adriatic.

The main regatta route goes from the island of Komiza to Palagruza. The regatta will feature  traditional "falkusa" and "leut" vessels.

Organiser Ars Halieutica head Josko Bozanic said the regatta’s aim was to promote Croatian archipelago revitalization, an issue that had not received much attention.

Rota Palagruzona evokes an historical event, local fishermen’s first regatta in 1593.

The first Rota Palagruzona took place last year.
