Croatian boats at French festival of sailors and the sea
Traditional boats that will represent the Kvarner and Istria region of Croatia at the International festival of sailors and the sea in Brest, France on 13-19 July, will be on display in Rijeka on 6 June as part of the Kvarner maritime tradition festival.
The city of Brest in France is famous for the sailors and sea festival which is held every four years. The last festival held in 2008 saw more than 2,000 boats from 24 countries. In just seven days more than half a million visitors attended the festival.
This year organisers have announced that more than 2,500 boats from 30 countries will attend the festival and 1 million visitors are expected to turn up, mainly from France, UK, Spain and Germany.
This year's Croatian star of the show will be the Laja from the island of Rab Laja, an eight meter long boat which is a naval rarity and also in Adriatic and Croatian shipbuilding heritage. Apart from the vessels, Croatian exhibitors at the festival will promote the overall tourist offerings of the Istria and Kvarner region of Croatia.
|Autor emisije Stipe Božić i snimatelj Joško Bojić prate povijesni pothvat Neretvana koji su s tradicionalnom riječnom lađom preveslali Jadransko more, od Ploča do grada Termolija u Italiji (pokrajina Molise). Pothvat je izveden pod simboličnim nazivom "Tragovima pradjedova". U pokrajini Molise na jugu Italije živi hrvatska manjina koja se tu doselila oko 1500. godine. Rutu dugu 270 kilometara lađari su prešli za 37 sati neprestanog veslanja. U pratnji lađara bio je brod HRM "Andrija Mohorovičić" na kojem su se lađari odmarali u pauzi veslanja. Niti veliko nevrijeme koje ih je zadesilo tijekom druge noći ni veliki valovi s vjetrom koji su nalijevali lađu nisu spriječili lađare da završe pothvat.|
