10th ROUND PALAGRUŽA CANNONBALL, RPC 2017

the ultimate offshore race

Biograd - Biograd, 08.04. - 15.4.2017


The Round Palagruža Cannonball takes place for the 10th time in 2017. It has become a “must sail” for offshore race fans! 

Looking back on a 9-year success story, organizers can be very proud. What began as a private initiative of two sailors has meanwhile developed into an event which was a breakthrough in many aspects. It has grown into "the toughest Austrian sailing regatta".

Over last 9 years, about 1.800 sailors participated on RPC. From hobby sailors to Olympic athletes. RPC is also proud of sailors such as Martin Hartl and Harald Wolf, whose international 2-hand crew has its origin in the RPC.

On April 10, 2017, at 12:00 o’clock 10th Round Palagruža Cannonball is about to start. The Safety Team will publish reports and photos on homepage www.roundpalagruza.at as well as on our Facebook page, so all the loved once at home can know that everybody is safe. 

As every year a live tracking with many features will be visible on: www.tractrac.com or at the popular Track-o-mio at: www.followmyroute.com 

Adriatic Challenge congratulates the organizers and all competitors the tenth anniversary of the event. We also want to thank everyone for ten years of loyalty and successful cooperation. We hope that the Adriatic Challenge has been at least partly responsible for the success of RPC race. We wish you a lot more years with a good wind.

The Spirit of Palagruža
The race concept has been simple and it has not changed since 2008: a round trip takes about 350 nautical miles from Biograd around Palagruža, and back to Biograd. 

A Round Palagruža Cannonball trophy goes by the name “The Spirit of Palagruža”. It was donated by Martin Hartl, as a prize for the overall fastest ship. If a skipper wins the trophy three times in a row, the trophy goes into the permanent ownership of the 3-time winner. The trophy is a solid steel sculpture of the sculptor Mario Werndl. The sculpture represents the island Palagruža, at scale of 1:2000, and has been carved manually with acetylene torches, from a 500kg solid steel block.
The selection of steel as the material for the trophy was the artistic idea for expressing the monumental energy of the forces of nature, when they meet on the high seas. The lighthouse was stylized from a quartz crystal. Weight: 76,42Kg, Dimensions: 500 x 200 x 170mm

THE FIRST TIME WITH THE NEW BAVARIA 41S FLEET!

In 2017, 21 new Bavaria 41S will participate for the first time on RPC in addition to the popular 10 Bavaria 42match. Adriatic Challenge prepared a surprise for the RPC. All 10 Bavaria 42 match are getting new main sails, from North Sails.
