The Rovinj regatta of traditional boats with lug and lateen sails has been taking place in Rovinj waters mid-June continuously for the past 15 years. From the start the goal of the event has been not only to preserve the traditional knowledge and lug sailing techniques, but also the art of lugsail design and painting. A fleet of about 40 boats from the wider Adriatic area will gather for the regatta, especially from Northern Italy, Slovenia and our Istria and Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. The event program is a creative and artistic celebration of maritime culture and our batana boat, offering an array of activities for all ages.
