PRESENTING THE PROJECT ADRIATIC EUROPA – DUŠAN PUH SAILING TEAM

The project Adriatic Europa – Dušan Puh Sailing Team is conceptualised as an integration project, aimed at supporting and promoting sailing, ecology and natural potentials for development in the Adriatic. The emphasis is on development opportunities in the Northern Adriatic and Slovenia as a maritime state, with the participation of the maxi sailing boat in regattas across the entire Mediterranean.

 

Given that the Adriatic still has plenty of unrealised development potentials, we welcome collaboration and support from everyone concerned with this area, especially the Slovenian Sailing Association as the umbrella sailing organisation in the country, local communities and regions, ports and logistics companies that are part of the supply chain between Europe and Asia, which represents a shorter and environment-friendlier alternative to competitive north European ports, tourist and cultural organisations in the Alpe Adria region, marinas and other providers of nautical services and equipment, as well as other environmentally conscious organisations and media representatives.

 

The head and main supporter of the project is the entrepreneur Gašpar Gašpar Mišič, who has in the recent years been a member of Dušan Puh’s Veliki Viharnik crew.

Mission

 

Through sailing as the primary sport discipline in maritime countries, participation in regattas as well as sport and competitive spirit, the mission of the Adriatic Europa project is to encourage and strengthen cross-border cooperation as well as to promote of environment, economic and tourism actors who strive to make the best of the cultural, historical and natural development advantages of the Mediterranean and the entire Alpe Adria region, with its epicentre in Koper and the Northern Adriatic.

Vision 

 

The vision of Adriatic Europa as an integration and promotion project is to increase the recognisability of the advantages provided by the natural development potentials in the Adriatic and thus contribute to the construction of a major European sport, cultural, tourism, economic and logistics platform in the Northern Adriatic and the Alpe Adria region.

ADRIATIC EUROPA

History of the sailing boat

 

Built entirely out of carbon fibre, the sailing boat was first launched in 1998 under the name Riviera di Rimini. It was designed by the “Studio Vallicelli”, owned by the famous Italian architect and industrial designer Andrea Vallicelli. From 2002 to 2009 it was the winning sailing boat of the Esimit Europa 1 project led by Igor Simčič, which emerged from the idea of connecting people and encouraging closer cooperation between European countries and the vision of building bridges between sports, diplomacy, social responsibility, culture and business.
In the spring of 2016 the sailing boat, renamed Adriatic Europa, will be launched under the Slovenian flag.

Domicile of the sailing boat

 

The domicile of the Adriatic Europa sailing boat is the university and port city of Koper, which is well known for its development-oriented initiatives. Koper is a Mediterranean city with a clear vision and a home to innovation, tradition and modernity. It is a healthy, active, sport-loving and people-friendly city that looks towards the future. The birth of the Adriatic Europa project is a logical outcome of the positive and progressive governance of the City Municipality of Koper, which continues to be successfully steered by the four-term Mayor Boris Popovič.

Dušan Puh

 

Dušan Puh is a former Olympic competitor, a sailing giant and undoubtedly one of the most experienced and versatile Slovenian sailors. He won many regattas on all types and sizes of sailing boats, including multiple victories at Barcolana, one of the world’s biggest regattas, in the role of the helmsman or tactician. The new sailing boat Adriatic Europa is largely manned by the crew of the successful Mobitel sailing project Veliki Viharnik, which in the last fifteen years won over 90% of all regattas under Dušan Puh’s leadership in both Slovenia and abroad.
