A great kick-off into 2023!
Traditionally the season for BENETEAU First 18 SEs & Seascape18s starts in the Adriatic Sea. In Marina Portorož, the Spring Porta Cup organisers managed to gather a competitive fleet of 18 teams from Austria, Germany, Scotland, Serbia and Slovenia.
Although weather forecasts didn’t look very promising, we were rewarded with two fantastic spring sailing days – mostly sunny with a bit of cloud and one thunderstorm – to make fights on the racing field even more interesting. Portorož bay again proved with very good wind conditions, and there was enough sea breeze to finish seven races.
Finally, a brand new 18SE, SLO 611 with Luka Baebler and Urban Jerman, took first place; second was SLO 600 with Tit Plevnik and Gal Potrč Pajk and in third place, SLO 349, father and son Jan and Aleks Kobler.
Sailing season 2023 is officially open! Results
