Local expertise, intimate knowledge of the terrain, the highest standards of professionalism, and pushing adrenaline activities to the very limit – these are just some of the things that the team from &Adventure has become known for over the last ten years of adventure tourism in Croatia.
And with these things as the very bones of our identity, who better to sponsor than a local sportsman who embodies all these things, and more!
&Adventure is delighted to announce its sponsorship and support for one of Croatia’s brightest young sailing talents for 2016, Filip Jurisic from Hvar. Filip started sailing at the age of 8, and his first competitive race was just a year later.
Starting out in Optimist class, Filip mainly sails in Laser class, but over the years, categories have included IMS, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial, ORC Club, Splash, ORCi, Class 40 and ORC (Offshore Racing Congress).
An accomplished coach since 2006, Filip has sailed competitively all over the world, and 2016 will be no exception. You will able to support our &Adventure partner at the following key international events next year (as well as several in Croatia):
World Cup in Miami in January
European Championship on the Canary Islands in February
World Championship in Mexico in March
World Cup in France in April
Euro Cup in Germany in May
World Cup in England in June
World Cup in China in September
Finals of the World Cup in Abu Dhabi in October
You can learn more about Filip on his website .
Good luck Filip, &Adventure is proud to sponsor you and we will be following your progress very closely.
Filip’s success is obviously down to his drive, talent and determination, but if you would like to discover what makes a boy start competitive sailing at the age of nine, you need only look at the beauty of his native Hvar and Pakleni Islands – a true sailing paradise. At &Adventure, we cannot guarantee to turn you into international sailors overnight, but our programmes and playground will give you a sailing experience to remember for ever.
