Dubrovnik Carnival Regatta


The Carnival event best known is of course in Rio de Janeiro, which normally held the weekend prior to Ash Wednesday. Dubrovnik also celebrates Carnival albeit on a much smaller scale.  This year, however it was ever so small due to the inclement weather.

The regatta is a series of boat races, usually named for the town or venue where the event takes place.  This year  Dubrovnik had a perfect day and the small sailing vessels were out in force.  Cold yes, but not a raindrop or cloud in the sky; a perfect day for a day on the Adriatic.
