Who are we ?
First step: we founded a club.
›Nautikverein sail attack‹ is its name.
Anglicisms are never bad and the name sounds young, strong and healthy...
Then the guidelines:
- It has to be a fair sportivissimo regatta!
- It has to be a middle-distance race similar to the 1000 miles race lasting several days, but with considerably less expenses, logistics and realisable within a week.
Yardstick or ORC Measurement? Oh no!
These two are most times the reasons for annoyance and anger of some or even most of those involved.
- So it has to be a race with a One-Design like the excellent S-Cup of the NCA.
- Finally, a little more "off shore" than in the Murter-Dubrovnik Challenge and this lead us to the Adriatic ›Fastnet‹-rock. Palagrua!
So the idea for the ›ROUND PALAGRUŽA CANNONBALL 2008‹ was born!
Unique in the Murter-Dubrovnik Challenge was the friendly atmosphere.
So some crews participated in advance in the organization and the sponsor search.
We consider the Round Palagrua Cannonball as a small race counting the number of possible participants, but a big challenge for all of them!
We hope that our idea is inspiring for other skippers and crews and will encourage a lively international participation!
Come and join the race !
