Sailors’ fashion of tattooing has a long tradition. The old saying goes: “A sailor without a tattoo is like a boat without grog.” Only sailors that crossed the Atlantic have been allowed to put an anchor tattoo. The symbol of the North Star was believed to help sailors find their way home. They were much more than decoration for the seafarers.
Here is a story about everything but ordinary regatta that takes place between the Croatian islands of Dugi Otok, Ugljan and Pašman – Gladuša. The special thing about this small but interesting regatta is that there are live concerts and parties the night before the race. It is also a very traditional regatta so you won’t miss the traditional march Tovareća mužika or Donkey’s music.
