Regattas

Regattas are sailing boat races. There are different types of regattas. They can be professional or amateur. Regattas may be organized as championships for a particular area or type of boat. One of the common divisions is to:

  • fleet regattas
  • match race regattas

In fleet regattas a lot of boats compete at the same time. Boats can be different or of the same type. If boats are different, regatta can be open or IMS (names for scoring rules). In match regatta only two boats compete at the same time. Boats are always of the same type or built by the same standards.

The other common division of regattas is to:

  • regatta around the buoys
  • navigational regatta

Regatta around the buoys is always held in some type of the regatta field which is usually determined by the position of the buoys. Boats sail around the buoys in given order. Navigational regatta is held around islands, lighthouses, buoys…

Starting procedure

For spectators probably the most interesting and the most attractive part of the race is its start. The start very often determines the course of the race and can be very exciting and physically demanding for the crew as well. Imaginary starting line is stretched, usually between the Regatta committee boat on one side and the buoy on the other side. Starting line is usually positioned perpendicular to the wind so that boats starts directly into the wind. Time is given to start, it counts down and no boat can cross the starting line until time before the start has elapsed.

Tactics

Tactics is a very important part of the race sailing. Tactics will depend on type of regatta, type of boat, wind, currents, experience of the crew, configuration of nearby land etc. Only sailors with great knowledge and experience can make good tacticians. Tactics in regatta sailing is a term that covers a very wide area. There are books written only on this subject.

Most popular regattas

Probably the two most famous regattas:

  • America’s Cup – match race around the buoys
  • Volvo Ocean Race (ex Whitbread) – navigational fleet race with all boats built by the same standard (open scoring rules).

ANA is especially proud of having the only Croatian crew member on the Whitbread ever – Zivko Matutinović! Zivko participated on this difficult race in 1993/1994. year, and with the Ukrainian crew on the sailboat Hetman Sahaidachny took seventh place, out of a total of 15 sailing boats! Today, Zivko is the leader of the base in Jezera, and every sailing with him represents the true pleasure and inexhaustible source of sailing and life skills.
