After competing in the Portoroz Cup two weeks ago, the RC 44 fleet is back in action in the Adriatic with the second RC 44 event of the season start today in Split. Six strict one-design high tech RC 44s will compete until Saturday, in both match and fleet-racing.

The races will take place at the foot of Mount Sustipan, one of the most beautiful sailing arenas of the Med. The six teams represent the six nations are involved: Beecom (JPN), Team Omega (IRL), Magia Alike (ITA), Cro-A-Sail (CRO), Ekipa 44 (SLO) and the Portoroz Cup winner Team Aqua ((UAE). Skippers involved include Cameron Appleton, Morten Henriksen, Tomislav Basic and of course Russell Coutts.

The championship is organised alongside the Croatia Boat Show, an impressive floating show featuring some of the Mediterranean’s finest yachts. The weather forecast for the coming days is great, with a sea-breeze and a blazing sunshine annonced.
