For the first time Portorož in Slovenia will host a 44Cup World Championship event.
Defending their 2021 win in Portoroz, local heroes Igor Lah’s team CEEREF powered by Hrastnik 1860 will be looking to add the World Championship title to the scoreboard on home waters: “Sailing under Slovenian flag is for us a great challenge and responsibility”, explained Lah.
“To be located in the city centre will be fantastic for the spectators and teams as we will have the atmosphere and connection to city life alongside the racing. The competition will be tough as all the teams are well prepared and sailing is as close as possible. This gives a lot of challenge and opportunity to everyone.”
