Day 4 44Cup Porto Montenegro - Team CEEREF claims golden wheels in Montenegro
The Bay of Tivat came good for the final day of the 44Cup Porto Montenegro with three races held and a most worthy winner in Igor Lah’s Team CEEREF. The Slovenian team led this first event of the 2019 44 Cup from the outset. Today neither they nor Vladimir Prosikhin’s Team Nika won a race, but showed impeccable consistency, both enjoying a trio of podium place results, elevating Team Nika from fourth to second overall.

Day 3 44Cup Porto Montenegro - Team Nika wins penultimate day
44Cup video published Apr 12, 2019: Dramatic cloud formations over the mountains surrounding the Bay of Tivat and an overcast sky suggested that 44Cup Porto Montenegro competitors would be in for another day of adrenalin-filled competition in winds in the high teens. In the event the wind started dropping almost the moment the timing for the sequence was announced.

44Cup video above published Apr 11, 2019: While the sun was out and the rain held off, Porto Montenegro presented a challenging second day of 44Cup racing with conditions starting off in 10 knots and building to 20 by the close of play this afternoon. A light patch around the committee boat helped create nail-biting photo finishes in two of today's three races.

44Cup Porto Montenegro, April, 10 to 14 April 2019, hosted by the world-renowned superyacht marina Porto Montenegro situated in Tivat on the Bay of Kotor, virtually landlocked from the sea, with a setting that is spectacular, nestled between mountains and vast fjords to Venetian hamlets and untouched parks. Home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Montenegro is on the ascent as a tourist destination. The tiny Balkan nation is perched on the eastern Adriatic yet heavily influenced by its Mediterranean neighbors.
