The Engineering Challenge Cup (ECC) was founded by Arno Hemm April 28, 1993, after his boat won first place in a friendly race at Cap Sunion Rally around the Gulf of Athens. As the winner, Arno was declared the ECC founder and first event organizer. Throughout its rich history, the regatta has brought together individuals and their respective engineering and contracting companies, who are bound not only by their professions, but also their enthusiasm for sailing. The focus has been placed on sailing in the Mediterranean region, where ECC participants look forward to meeting the locals and enjoying their history and culture. This event provides a perfect opportunity to plan sailing holidays Croatia.
Online PR News – 19-May-2010 – – Marina Kornati, Biograd, Croatia 5/19/10 -- Adriatic Challenge D. O. O. Is pleased to announce that 12 Adriatic Challenge Bavaria 42 Match Yachts will be putting in their first appearance at the 17th annual Engineering Challenge Cup Regatta, held in Biograd, Croatia from the 8th to the 15th of May.
In 2010, entries for the 17th Engineering Challenge Cup have peaked with 73 multinational crews, and approximately 360 crew members. Quite an achievement! The atmosphere is friendly and non aggressive, yet the sailing competition is tough. The overall winner of the week-long event will be bestowed with the title of "Commodore for the year" - a designation and trophy to defend annually at the Commodore's Cup (ran in parallel with the ECC) and thus the highlight of the regatta. As the ECC and Commodore's Cup are run at the same time, participants of each event are ranked separately. The two separate events running parallel create a strong reason to plan sailing holidays Croatia during this time.
