Once again, the Frapa sailing club is organizing one of the most successful business regattas in this area - the Business Cup. One of the largest business regattas in the Adriatic will be held from October 16 to 20 in the waters in front of Marina Frapa in Rogoznica. This is a high class international regatta, with a tendency to continue the tradition of gathering a large number of business partners. The regatta presents nautical, business, and personal pleasure and is accompanied by a great program. In accordance with the size and importance of the regatta itself, there is an incredibly ample prize fund, which makes participating even more enticing. Come and form new business relationships, improve existing ones, and have a great time!

Frapa Business Cup 2016

Evidence that Croatia, as a maritime country with a long tradition of sailing and tourism, with a unique archipelago with more than a thousand islands, is a favorite destination of sailors is given by the latest data from the Croatian Chamber of Economy. In 2015, more than 362 thousand sailors vacationed in Croatia (which is an increase of 4.5 percent in comparison with the previous year), who stayed for a total of 2.5 million nights, or 4 percent more than the previous year. The number of yacht and boat rentals through charter companies also grew in the same period by a total of 4.5 percent, with a total of more than 63 thousand rentals, while the number of active boats, sailboats, and motorboats grew by 3.3 percent. Research showed that the average sailor visiting Croatia is 45 years old, while more than three-quarters of the sailors (77%) have college or university degrees. Every second sailor comes from a household with a monthly income of more than 3500 euro, and while sailing in 2012 they spent an average of a hundred euro per person per day (not including transportation to and from the harbor of departure).
