Regatta for the soul and the body
This regatta was established to promote the gajeta of Betina as “the most successful type of wooden ships by which the labourers and fishermen sailed for centuries, confirming its exceptional qualities,” residents of Betina proudly emphasize. Every year, the diverse cultural programme brings a lot of interesting things, from pleasure sailing to the competition regatta with food and drinks and lots of good songs and cheer. If you find yourself near Murter Island in the middle of August, this is an event not to be missed. “The regatta for the soul and the body” brings us back to the romantic past of wooden ships and white sails. The regatta embodies a spirit in which winning alone is not paramount, but to enjoy the unique traditional way of life with the sea.
