Beneteau yacht rally started on Sunday 05.10.2014. in Trogir. Ratko Tomić ( as usual) had  skipper’s meeting at 09:00 in front of our office in Trogir. He explained all details and rules to skippers and they finished with  last  details for start.  Of course first we needed to try very good all kinds of  domestic grappa. Start should have been at 10:30, but we had small delay and start was at 10:50.
