8th Terra da mare race

"Terra da mare" regatta, from Bari to Herceg Novi was held for 8th time, with participants from Italy, Montenegro, Serbia, Croatia and Russia. Race started on Wednesday at 3 pm, from Bari, with as much as 49 boats, and the fastest one was "Fetch", driven by Mauro Sciantantonico from CUS Bari. This impressive 22 meters long sailing boat has reached the finish line at Herceg Novi port on Thursday morning around 3 am. Little after, the fastest boat from the other side of Adriatic sea, "Black Mistery", driven by Sasa Kekovic from Herceg Novi, finished the race. Besides Kekovic's sailing boat, 13 Montenegrin boats participated on 8th Terra da mare regatta, from various Montenegrin clubs - Jugole Grakalić, Jovo Dabović, Mornar-Bar, Jug Montenegro, Lahor and Bokeška jedra.

 

Thanks to good cooperation with City port, every sailing boat had secured docking place, so the Port of Herceg Novi looked like real European sailing boat marina.

All the participants of the 105 miles long regatta from Bari to Herceg Novi also participated at the Trophy o Herceg Novi regatta, from Herceg Novi to Baosici. Sponsors of the race were, on the Italian side, Olivetti D'Italia, biggest Mediterranean corporation for olive oil production, that took another opportunity, like every year, to meet with local olive oil manufacturers
