Race report from Croatia by winner Branislav Sramek:
This weekend I participated in Croatia’s first elite SUP race. The race was in a beautiful location and was very well organized. We started in Porec and paddled 13 km to Lanterna. It was supposed to be a downwind race but there was only very little wind and the direction was side/back.
Soon after the start we formed a group of 3, together with Peter Bartl and Italian Davide Codoto. I felt well and strong, so after 5 km I tried to make a move. After a short sprint I dropped Peter and Davide and left them behind. For the rest of the race I paddled alone and was keeping a safe gap to my followers and crossed the finish line about one minute ahead of them.
I am very happy with this result and it was a successful day for JP in 1st (me) and 3rd (Peter Bartl) place.
