On the island of Lošinj: EURO-AFRICAN SPEARFISHING CHAMPIONSHIP

   
   

From 13 to 17 September 2017, Udica Sports and Fishing Association from Mali Lošinj, in cooperation with the Town of Mali Lošinj, Tourist Board of Mali Lošinj and Jadranka Group, organize the 31st Euro-African Spearfishing Championship under the auspices of the Office of the President Republic of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar Kitarović, with the support of the Croatian National Tourist Board.

During this two-day competition (15 and 16 September), the Lošinj aquatorium is expected to host more than 120 participants and visitors from 19 different European and African countries as well as some of the best spear fishermen such as Giorgios Vasiliou (Cyprus), vice champion Giannis Sideris (Greece) and former European, world and a multiple state champion in spear fishing, Daniel Gospić from Lošinj.

On the first day of the program, 13 September 2017, the youngest will be restocking at the port of Mali Lošinj at 11 o'clock. The ceremonial opening of the Euro-African Spearfishing Championship will take place on 14 September 2017 at 18:00 in the Mali Lošinj Square with the performance of the band The Beat Fleet (TBF). The competition will commence on 15 September 2017 at 10:00 after which the catch will be scaled. Also, on 16 September 2017, at the end of the championship and scaling of the catch, at 19:00 Bočac sports hall will host the award ceremony and the closing ceremony of the competition.

Many foreign championships have not yet been completed, thus the organization of the championship is quite demanding, given that rules and regulations stipulate application deadlines for the contestants. The President of Udica Sports and Fishing Association, Dragan Jambrošić, said that we can expect top competitors and top results. The Euro-African Spearfishing Championship is better than the world championships because it involves ‘top’ national teams that more easily adapt to an area with plenty of fish and an area devoid of fish. The Lošinj aquatorium is rich in fish although everything depends on weather conditions.

Mali Lošinj is the cradle of spearfishing. The first world championship in spear fishing was held in Mali Lošinj in 1957, therefore it is indeed a great pleasure to be the host of such championship. It is no accident that the championship will be held as part of the ‘Lošinj Sails around the World’ Festival, which will revive and present the historical and cultural heritage of Lošinj maritime affairs from 2 to 23 September 2017. This championship as well as the events, workshops and the gastronomic offer of the Festival will enrich the tourist offer of the island of Lošinj as well as the whole region of Kvarner, and our guests will enjoy the unique experience of 'immersion' in history and tradition in an attractive and fun way, said the Mayor of Mali Lošinj, Ana Kučić.

In addition to the first-class organization, an aquatorium that is more than suitable for this type of competition and top contestants, visitors and participants can expect a truly interesting championship on the island of vitality.
