“Cor Caroli” is an international sailing regatta that has become a tradition after 20 years of excitement, the fresh smell of the sea and the wind in the hair. It’s a 4-day yacht competition that takes part every August on the Bulgarian coast and is organized by the “Cor Caroli” foundation.
This year’s jubilee edition of the prestigious race starts on August 12th at “Sea Port” Bourgas. The second stop is at St. Vlas and the awards ceremony will take place in Varna – aligned with the city’s annual festive holiday on August 15th.
Once again, the “Cor Caroli iCard” regatta promises positive summer emotions to both the competing teams coming from different countries, to the general public and to the yachting enthusiasts watching the race dynamics from the coast.
The competition will challenge 40 sailing yachts, each from 7 to 15 meters long and around 250 crew members. One of the Bulgarian Navy ships will there to support the racers in case of need.
