A bike tour was organized by Adrenalina mountain bike team a local biking association which took us on a approx 16km beautiful ride through the Nature Park of Kamenjak. [more]
Back at the event site a typical Istrian lunch was served and for the rest of the day there were activities such as horse riding, archery, sup and kayaking.
Tonight, hang out at the surfers Bar.
An early start for the 4th day of competition did not help as the winds failed to pick up, to take the most advantage of the light conditions the competition area was moved further out in the bay. Unfortunately we only could run one heat of the finals and the winners finals had to be canceled.
Paintball was the next activity on the program and the kids were very excited to use some of their energy followed by the lunch break back at the event site.
Blue skies and sunshine but still no wind, next stop a visit to the Aquarium in Pula guided by Neven Ivesa. The building is a beautiful fortress from the 19th century with all kinds of marine life such as sharks, turtles, piranas, star fish, sea horses and many more.
Later that evening Karaoke took place in a cool local bar in Premantura and all the riders got to show off their vocal skills by singing their favorite song.
Skippers meeting was held at 10:00am, the weather forecast predicted up to 25 knots winds in the afternoon but the wind direction was offshore so on the inside of the bay the winds were too unstable to run the last rounds of the Youths finals. [more]
While waiting for the winds to get better with the next possible start postponed until noon, a football tournament was organized with 4 teams including a local team. After a three course meal lunch, the winds got even less so a horse riding session took place and some riders and the head judge had their first time on a horse!
The competition was called off and everyone gathered for a little hang out at the local Safari Bar, an unusual place inside the Kamenjak nature park with the most beautiful view over the Mediterranean Sea. Later in the evening, the official dinner is organized for all competitors in a high standard restaurant of Premantura.
