For several years, the Austrian Pitter Charter has been the organiser of so called Cruising Regattas on the Adriatic Sea, open not only for owned yachts but also for charter boats. The Kornati Cup, organised by Pitter for the 15th time this year, has become so popular, that the number of entries had to be limited to 100.
And now, a NEW challenging competition has been launched: The Race - 1000 miles', a long-distance race organised for the first time this autumn, starting in Biograd, Pitter's main base in the middle of the Adriatic Coast, and heading in a first leg over 390 miles nonstop to Lefkas in Greece, and in a second leg back to Biograd, a most challenging but also picturesque course with an up-to-date race management, ORC handicap and class rankings (with and without spi), GPS tracking and shore support. Entry is open for adequate monohulls with a minimum speed potential to be evaluated and decided on by the organisers. Especially attractive is the participation in a top-equipped Charter-One-Design-yacht as offered by Pitter: the Bavaria Cruiser 40S (Spi) or the Bavaria Cruiser 45 (Gennaker).

Offshore racing for all Yacht Owners and Charterers !
The long-distance regatta 'The Race', launched by the Austrian Pitter Yachtcharter, will be started on October 17 2015 in Biograd (Croatia), leading in a first leg over 500 miles to Lefkas (Greece), followed by a second leg back to Biograd. The stopover in Greece is not only very relaxing and entertaining, but allows at the same time to change up to half of the crew. The logistics of this race are not simple, and Pitter is therefore partnering with the Lefkas based IYC (Ionic Yacht Charter) taking over race management in Greece and supporting the teams during their stop. IYC, a German-Greek family affair, has been the charter pioneer on the Ionic Sea since 1979, and is a long-time base for the Mediterranean Cruising Section of the Deutsche Segler Verband. The Bavaria dealer Yacht Meltl has a support base at IYC as well and is ready to give a special assistance to Bavaria owners and charterers. The third partner to be mentioned is the German Insurance Agency Yachtpool, the prime sponsor of 'The Race', specialised in Yacht- and Charter insurance matters, jointly cooperation with Pitter for a long time.
