How did it all start?

Idea for the Rotaract sailing trip came from Rotaract club Ljubljana team-building sailing and Rotaract Cup, regatta organized for Rotaractors by Rotaract club Celje, both in September 2013. Events were very positively accepted and we decided to upscale it and make it international.  

Since few members of organizing team already organized similar sailing project in their professional life, we had more than enough experiences and contacts to do the next step. In September 2014 we organized first official REST sailing trip with three sailing boats in the fleet. We spent five imagine days in North Adriatic with 24 Rotaractor from 11 different countries. 

REST is growing!

In 2015 REST truly expanded over all expectations and we gathered almost 100 Rotaractors from 19 different countries from all around the globe. First 5-day edition was extended to the whole week. Although weather wasn’t serving us very well we visited few of the best places in Adriatic Sea and according to the sailors feed-back it was truly a week of our lives!

In 2016 and after 2017 we’ve changed the route completely and sailed in Split archipelago. New islands offered us unforgettable places and some of the most famous destinations. We’ve visited magnificent and historical city of Split, partied in the famous city of Hvar, sailed and visited whole island of Vis, including world famous attractions as Blue cave on island Biševo, anchor and swim on surfing mecca Bol na Braču and always had a wild beach party at the magnificent bay of Blaca. Those nights will never be forgotten. We also took care of the environment and cleaned the beach of all the garbage at the bay. 
From two previous editions we are very proud of all our REST sailors, who rewarded our work with basically sold out early bird places in just few seconds.
Together with you, we also donated 4.500€ to organization Mirno More Marina Kaštela for participation on of the biggest social project in Europe – Peace Fleet Mirno More. Donations financed one weeks of sailing for one boat each year for young sailors from Split orphanage Dom Maestral.  

Charity donation in 2018

At the moment donation is not defined yet, but we decided to focus on our environment and support projects for sea cleaning and plastic pollution awareness. As soon as details will be clear we will publish it.  

We can not wait to meet you all (again) in August 2018!
