Model Sailboats Competition in Rijeka

Rijeka means river in Croatian. There is, indeed, a river in Rijeka but the town is more known for its port. Or I should rather say that it used to be known for its port which is not as busy as it used to be.

The town of Rijeka is located in the north of Croatia on Kvarner Bay. Because of its strategic position, the city was fiercely contested throughout history among Italy, Hungary (serving as the Kingdom of Hungary’s largest and most important port) and Croatia. As a result, it changed hands and demographics many times over centuries.

However, this post is not about Rijeka but about the model sailboat competition that took place in the port of Rijeka.

The sea was oily calm, there was a bit of wind but the weather was otherwise good – so the conditions for the race were perfect.

I wouldn’t know who won the competition but I really enjoyed it…
