UNIQA Offshore Challenge
YC Biograd / YC Tkon / ORCA (Offshore Racing Club Austria)
13-19 October 2012, Biograd - Dubrovnik - Biograd
Every second year, an offshore race from Biograd to Dubrovnik and back gets organized by Offshore Racing Club Austria, Yachtcharter Pitter Austria.
This year, under sponsorship of Uniqa Insurance, the race was sailed 13 - 19 October 2012. Total number of participating boat was limited to 70 yachts, divided in classes:
Bavaria 42 Match (with Spinnaker), Bavaria 47 (without Spinnaker) as OPEN classes, with and without spinnaker.
This race has reached a cult status during the past years: Hard weather conditions and on-going battle against the fatigue make this race challenging for tough skippers and crews.
The UNIQA Offshore Challenge live on-line tracking made the race more exciting, not only to follow the race, but also to consult about all information available such as weather forecast, positions.
