Inter-Club Match Race at Porto Montenegro
The Porto Montenegro Yacht Club held its inaugural Inter-Club Match Race from June 29th to July 1st this year. Six four-man teams of sailors were able to test out Porto’s four new 8ft Blu26 boats while their family, friends and guests enjoyed the hospitality program at the premier lifestyle destination in the Adriatic.
This three-day match race gathered representatives of some of the most prestigious European clubs including Gstaad Yacht Club, Bayern Yacht Club and the Royal Southampton Yacht Club. Representatives from Montenegro included the Skver team from Herceg Novi and the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club.
Outside of the heated competition and the glorious summer weather, participants had the opportunity to explore the Bay of Kotor for themselves, relax poolside at the 64metre Purobeach pool during the day and enjoy various social events around Porto Montenegro Village in the evenings.
The final day’s award ceremony was held during a spectacular sunset on the top terrace of Purobeach, a fitting end to such a successful event. The Bayern Yacht Club won 1st place while Skver took 2nd and Porto Montenegro came 3rd. Marina Director Tony Browne led the award ceremony, presenting each team with unique amphora trophies handmade by Slaby, a local art studio.
