To encourage the endeavors of two young sailors named Igor Les and Matija Grabić from Tivat, Adriatic Marinas has agreed to support Delfin Yacht Club with a donation of EUR 5000. The sailors are already winning European races in the laser radial class and are expected to reach even greater heights in the near future.
“Financial support was essential for us to successfully round off the sailing year and try to win the European Cup in the Under-19s category. The funds donated to us by Adriatic Marinas will support us in those competitions and provide for the purchase of various important sails and masts," says the club's sailing coasch, Ilko Klakor.
At the series of races in Lugano, Italy, Igor Les placed 1st overall with his teammate Matija Grabić in 3rd. Matija also won 2nd place in the Under-19s category.
“We are currently 3rd and 4th in the Euroleague out of around 500 contenders from all over Europe. We have three more races, and we both have a chance to qualify in the top three," says Igor Les.
“We compete in the elite races, we set ourselves clear objectives and with more good results we hope to show the sports public and Montenegrin institutions that support us exactly what we are capable of," adds Matija Grabić.
Adriatic Marinas and Porto Montenegro Sports Club will continue to support talented athletes from Tivat, helping to ensure they achieve their full potential.
