Not at all, the teams are on training!

Pouring rain, 12°C, bora with 15 to 22 knots... Let's hope for improvement during the week! Tonight we are celebrating a big welcome with kaiserschmarrn (Austrian sweet shredded pancake) for everyone, just as you need it the night before a marathon. Tomorrow morning we are having our last briefing before the 5th RPC starts at noon.

5th Round Palagruza Cannonball:
Easter, as tough as tough comes.

Team Alles Yacht
Among the roughly three or four dozen charter boat regattas drawing mostly Austrian and German sailors to the Croatian Coast every year, the Round Palagruza Cannonball stands out as the season´s toughest and most exciting event. On Easter Monday, the fifth edition of the race starts in Biograd.

The Cannonball´s 380 nautical miles track equals 700 kilometers, roughly the road distance Zagreb-Torino. It leads the fleet out to sea, around the Palagruza rock and back to Biograd again - nonstop, day and night and no matter what the weather dishes out. All competitors in the race´s two groups sail yachts of the same type, keeping up the excitement of close-combat match racing from start to finish. This is racing as tough as tough comes, yet some of the most serious and successful Cannonball competitors have been ladies, and this year, for the first time, an all-women crew enters the race.
