Dear Subscriber,

During the short summer racing break, Esimit Europa 2, one of the world’s fastest and technologically most advanced yachts, has returned to the Adriatic Sea, to its base port in Muggia, to prepare for the unique mixture of diplomatic, business and sports activities scheduled in the autumn of this year’s racing season.
The second part of the racing season will begin in the Adriatic Sea in September, with a coastal challenge that takes place in Izola, Slovenia - the Diplomatic regatta, at which diplomats are invited to take part on board of the racing yachts. Read more



Next on the schedule will be an offshore race in the Adriatic - the Thousand Islands Race, which connects two ports in two countries – Rijeka in Croatia, with its historic harbour, and Tivat in Montenegro, with Porto Montenegro. In the course of 277 nautical miles in each direction, the attending yachts have to navigate among more than a thousand islands in the Adriatic Sea. Read more

In October, two traditional races will follow for Esimit Europa 2 in the Gulf of Trieste – first the Bernetti Lombardini Cup, a demanding preliminary race for the Barcolana regatta, which is scheduled one week later. Read more

The largest single start regatta in the Mediterranean, the Barcolana regatta, will follow on the second Sunday of October. Esimit Europa 2 won line honours at all the races it has attended and is the current course record holder. At this year’s 46th edition of the Barcolana regatta, the Esimit Europa project enters into a partnership with the organizers to propose a “Barcolana Challenge - Medot Trophy”– a special introductory race, organized in a friendly and sporting spirit of this historic race for all 13 category winners from the previous edition of Barcolana, who will be invited to compete against each other on monotype ESTE 24 boats.

Just after Barcolana, the Esimit Sailing Team will set sails towards Valletta, with the aim of improving the record for the passage between Trieste and Valletta for the Medot Sailing Trophy. In 2012, Esimit Europa 2 set the benchmark for the approximately 700 nautical miles long passage between Trieste (Italy) and Valletta (Malta) – open to all classes and recognized by the World Sailing Speed Record Council. The time to beat is 68 hours, 42 minutes and 24 seconds. By establishing this challenge, more yachts should be inspired to take part in connecting the two races in the Mediterranean.

The last challenge of the season awaits the Esimit Sailing Team upon arrival in Valetta with the highly-rated offshore classic, one of the most picturesque races in the Mediterranean, the 35th edition of the Rolex Middle Sea Race. Esimit Europa 2 has taken line honour victories in the years 2010 – 2012, while in the racing season 2013 this race was abandoned just a few days before the start because the yacht’s mast broke on the way to Malta.

There is plenty going on this autumn, so stay tuned!
