Kronplatz Cup

2-3 August 2014

Kronplatz Cup | The highest sailing regatta in the Alps

Sailing in a mountain ski resort? Boats challenging at 1900 meters a.s.l.?

All this and much more in the most unusual event of the summer. Kronplatz has always been theater for extraordinary challenges. For this reason it was decided to organize, in collaboration with the Tourism Board of Medulin - Croatia and the Tourism Board of Milazzo – Sicily, two seaside resorts which are partners of Kronplatz, something never seen before: a sailing regatta on the South Tyrol's nr.1 ski resort!

Skirama Kronplatz - Plan de Corones and Skijaški klub Istra Pula - Pula Istria Ski Club have conceived and developed the idea and turned it into a unique event.

In the first weekend of August, three teams – Sailing team Milazzo, Sailing team J.K. VEGA Medulin and Sailing team Kronplatz - each consisting of three boats will challenge within the small snowmaking artificial lake Pracken, located at 1870 meters above sea level

The boats belong to the Optimist class, normally used up to 16 years.
On Sunday 3rd of August, day in which the main race will be held, the event will be accompanied by musical entertainment and grilled food in the basin area, provided by local sports clubs.
