Once a year hundreds of luxury yachts set sail in the turquoise blue Adriatic Sea for the renowned South Dalmatia Regatta.
This year the South Dalmatia Regatta will be held from the 1st to the 3rd of August attracting prominent nautical names from all over the world. The event is organised by the Orsan Yacht Club and begins in the channel between Korčula and the Pelješac, before finishing in Dubrovnik. It is one of the longest of its kind in Croatia and boasts some of the most fascinating scenery (arguably in the world).
The regatta has been held almost continuously for the past three decades and apart from being a popular event for navigators it is also an attraction for guests to the region. On the eve of the race a party is held in Orebić. Sailors and competitors mix with the locals and the tourists in a farewell send-off.
If you really needed an excuse to visit Dubrovnik in the middle of summer then now you have it!
