PORTOROZ, October 19, 2019 - For the second day of this year's 8th Halloween regatta, clouds continue to persist above the bay in Portorož this morning, but soon the witch's recipe has made sailors worthwhile.

This time Aurora Ambroz (JK Čupa) made the most of this beautiful autumn racing day, swinging to the top of the rankings, ahead of Mai Petrič (JK Jadro) and Giuseppe Montesan (TPK Sirena).

Initially a south wind slowly evolved into a slightly stronger southwest over the course of the day, allowing the race committee to smoothly run four races for both groups. "In the morning the wind direction was south, with 10-12 knots, which slowly turned to the southwest and gradually strengthened until a the end of the fourth and also last Saturday race." Bojan Gale commented on the situation.

On a sunny afternoon, a crowd of almost two hundred headed sailors returned to land, where they were greeted by a charming and extremely benevolent witch who gave the children practical gifts at the draw.

Tomorrow is the third and final day of the regatta, the start is scheduled for 11 am, so that early afternoon we will be able to wait for the announcement of the winners of the most magical regatta!
