Regatta 1000 Island Race
The Thousand Island Race is an ideal race for navigators who want to show their talent.  Sailing from Rijeka to Porto Montenegro and back means that the race is set literally in more than a thousand islands.  Leg 1 starts at Rijeka; the islands of Unije, Susak, Premuda, Dugi Otok, Kornat, Vis, Lastovo and Sveti Andrija are to be left to starboard, while on Leg 2, starting at Porto Montenegro, they will have to be left to port.  Apart from a few marks at the start and finish, there are no other course limitations, so it will be for individual boats to choose the best course.
