Dear friends and colleagues

I hope you are well in these strange times and all your dear ones too. As you know this year I'm planning to organize WPSC and ICCA - both regattas at the same time. Base will be marina Hramina on Murter island and we are planning to visit islands Šolta, Brač and Hvar - but all that depends on weather conditions because distances are quite a factor here. Anyhow, now it is really necessary to know the number of crews which want to participate. That's because we must close the enrolments and close payments as well. So please read info about both events again and please send me your answer if you have any attention to participate. I understand the time is not quite good for final decisions, but it will help a lot to me if I know your decision even if you can't participate. THANK YOU for your answer in advance.

DETAILS:

Both regattas will be held from 11th to 18th Sept 2021

9 teams already paid first fee:
-Top Cops
- Cobra
- Lucerne PST
- Hong Kong
- Slovenija PST
- PSNI I
- PSNI II
- Metropolitan London
- Dorset
 

Also 5 teams send inquiries or enrolments to ICCA regatta, but that's still unclear what to do with it. Perhaps it is really better to have traditional ICCA in 2022. All depends on Covid situation and teams which want to participate. Question is if only 3 or 5 teams will participate in ICCA - will be that official ? Perhaps it is better to have ICCA in 2022. Think about that too and please give me an answer. *

WPSC 2021:
Bavaria 41 with Gennaker, fee is 4.000,00 € + cca 250 €

ICCA 2021:
Bavaria 46, fee is 3.900,00 € + additional cca 250 € - it could be competition or just "tourist" sailing with WPSC fleet *

FEE INCLUDE:

5 dinners for 6 persons
organization costs
transit log
final cleaning
bedding
parking for 2 cars
WiFi (unlimited)
gennaker-WPSC
Mandatory payments at check in:
Tourist tax: 1,35 €/person/day
Deposit or deposit insurance

P.S.: Some teams already sent me an answer saying they can't participate because they don't have a crew, or regarding Covid situation or other reasons.
But still please give me an answer again so I will have all here at one place.

Thank you.

Update to the newsletter on 15.12.2020

Dear friends and colleagues

I wish to inform you that the situation in Croatia is improving, and people are also very positive about everything. After all, Spring is at the gates, and we like to say we see a light at the end of the tunnel. But anyhow, the road to defeat this disease is still unclear. I'm happy that September is "far away" from now so we will have a clear picture before our events. Anyhow I must inform you that the deadline to send IE and first payments are missed. I know we have all problems with everything  about Covid19 situation, but let's think positive here. I need to know the number of crews in the case everything will be OK, so please just send IE if you want to participate, so I can assure the boats. 

Regarding the first payment the new deadline is end of March, I'm sure the charter company will approve that regarding the situation.

 

 Info about the event:

 

1. Homeport: marina Hramina on Murter island, Croatia

2. When: 11th September to 18th September 2021

message from Franjo..

Dear friends,

These last days I am calculating and calculating expenses to organize WPSC&ICCA 2021. Nobody can tell what will be then in September 2021, but I truly hope and believe we will meet.

So far I can say calculated fee is about 4.000,00 € for WPSC and little less for ICCA + about 250 € additional costs like always, but we will try to get some more discount on the boats - due to all this trouble with Covid 19 and also the fact we/you already paid some additional amount of the fee in advance to the charter. I can't help a lot here - boats are simply much more expensive in September then in October. Anyhow we will see what we could manage to do. Like always I will try to lower the costs as much as I can.

All prices are calculated for 6 persons, 6 dinners in the program on the picture. We will visit at least two more main islands in Dalmatia - Hvar and Brač.

A message from Franjo..

Dear friends and colleagues

Obviously we are living in the hard times. Nobody is safe, nobody is certain what is real and what is not. The fact is Covid 19 has a great influence on our lives, our homes, our families. We can't argue with that. Anyhow I am, and I hope we all are "optimists", and we still see the light at the end of that tunnel. I have been thinking a lot these days, and I want to share some ideas with the whole "ICCA family". This is only an idea, and please be free to share your thoughts.

Let's say ICCA regatta was 2015, 2017, 2019.... and WPSC was 2016, 2018 and finally 2020 postponed. The Idea is simple - to postpone it to 2022. Next year we will need to relax, we will need something really refreshing to forget 2020. So, my idea is to have a new ICCA sailing week 2021 which is an ICCA regatta but a little more fun. Still we will keep it like a Law Enforcement regatta, like always but we will allow exceptions , so also family members or even friends can participate, but only half of their crew - or something like that. I think that rule will facilitate finding members to fulfil the crew.

But the main change is add more routes and more destinations at the Adriatic, so every evening we will moor in another marina/town/island. I have already had meetings with port authorities, restaurants, even majors of some destinations to see what options we have. So far I can say the best response I have from port Rogoznica and islands Hvar (Jelsa, Pakleni otoci, Hvar), Brač (Bol) and Vis (Vis). So possible routes in one week you can see at the map in attachment. But the real route will always depend on the weather of course and safety.

Again, this is just an idea, WPSC/ICCA 2021 is still scheduled for 11-18 Sept 2021.

Please let's hear from about this:
1. What do you think about it ?
2. What do you think if we moved the dates to October - regarding the Covid situation is perhaps better to have it later (depends when the vaccine will be discovered)

So talk about it and then please let skippers answer these questions.

Thank you - stay safe, stay optimistic

Best regards

Franjo Stančin

A message from Franjo:-

 Dear Friends and colleagues,

ICCA 2017 is over, and I hope you had a great time in Dalmatia. We were very lucky with weather and wind conditions. I'm glad "Bora" was friendly with us, because you/we don't want to meet her in full power ;-). So, next week I have some meetings with charter companies about World Police Sailing Championship 2018, and I will need your initial enrolments to get the number of the crews to start negotiations. The boats will be 3.cabins Bavaria 41 C, or S, all 2017/18 with spinnaker.

Please send your initial enrolments as soon as possible. Thank you and see you next year in Dalmatia again.

The Coppers' Cup is an international sailing regatta for members of law enforcement agencies.

The 14th Coppers' Cup held
on the Dalmatian Coast, Adriatic:

19th - 26th September, 2015.

Coppers Cup moves to Croatia.

The first International Copper’s Cup Regatta was organised by a group of Interpol sailing enthusiasts from Holland in 1989 when they invited employees from European law enforcement authorities to take part. From those small beginnings the bi-annual event held on the Ijsselmeer, Netherlands each year, has gone from strength to strength attracting over twenty four crews sailing Bavaria yachts of varying lengths in handicap racing.

At the 2013 regatta it was announced that the Netherlands would step down as organisers and Franjo, a member of the Slovenian team, volunteered to host the 2015 regatta in Croatia on the Adriatic.

On the 19th September 2015 twenty four crews arrived at Marina Hramina, Murter Island, Croatia ready to compete at the new venue. The charter of Bavaria 46 footers had been arranged for the weeks racing. There were teams from Netherlands, Sweden, Slovenia, Norway, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Hong Kong, PSNI, Garda Siochana, UK Waterguard, Lancashire and Dorset.

Six races were held during the week, some longer races around several of the numerous islands and some windward leeward courses. Racing was well organised with good windward starting legs, a high speed rib was on hand to position and move inflatable marks. A lay day gave crews the opportunity to explore further afield when participants took their yachts to a distant island for an overnight stay and a meal at a restaurant on the island. Onshore social events and meals were arranged for several of the evenings during the week allowing crews to socialise.

At the end of the regatta one of the Norwegian teams were the winners and the runners up were the Slovenian team. The Slovenian organising committee made an excellent job of their first Coppers Cup and are all set to hold the next one in 2017.

A skippers' meeting held during the week discussed the 2016 World Police Offshore Sailing Championships. Germany stated they were willing to stage the event but warned it would have to be at a colder time of year outside the expensive charter summer months. Franjo, the Coppers Cup organiser, said his committee were willing to hold the event. A skippers vote confirmed that the preference was for the Croatia venue.

Keep an eye out on this website for details, Franjo is arranging for the charter of twenty Beneteau First 35’s with spinnakers and the proposed date is 10 to 17 September, 2016.

A report from Kent crew member, Steve O'Keefe on the
Interpol Coppers Cup, 2009

Founded in 1989 with biannual events, the 11th regatta in 2009 saw 32 teams from 22 countries competing on the Ijsselmeer, Holland in very high winds. This year, Kent received an invitation to compete and we secured a creditable 8th place against some outstanding sailing teams from Sweden, Finland, Germany, Italy and the UK to name just a few; Countries with fine sailing histories and fine sailors. To finish in 8th place out of 32 against such competition was achievement indeed.

Karl Beverley skippered and put together a team of five to take part and we took over our boat at Lemmer in Holland. Engine problems denied us the opportunity to practice so we entered the first races with none. With Karl on the helm, Jenny Best and Trevor McGrath cockpit crew and foresail trimmers, Nick Grainger on the foredeck and Steve O’Keefe trimming the mainsail the crew had its work cut out to control the boat in the high winds that at times gusted over 30 mph. That’s a force 6 and is called “A yachtsman’s gale” for good reason, so just moving around the boat becomes a challenge and can be a bruising experience.

The first two days were taken up with qualification races to refine the competitors into 2 fleets of 16, the Gold and Silver fleets. This presented a dilemma; do we go for gold or an increased possibility of winning Silverware by ensuring qualification for the Silver fleet only? In the end, we decided that we would be selling Kent and ourselves short by deliberately going for the Silver fleet so took our chances by doing our best. The lack of practice told on the first day and those results limited what might even have been a better placing but they were sufficient to place us in the Gold fleet. During the Gold fleet races the results gradually improved as the week progressed with a 4th place being the highlight… Triumph! In the final races, a rope on the mainsheet jammed in a block just as we rounded a mark among a number of other boats. If the mainsail can’t move you can’t move the boat (it’s like jamming the steering as you round the hairpin bend!) Heart stopping for a few seconds while we fought to free it and meant that we had to retire from the last race and our possible best place of the week… disaster!

The event organisation and hospitality were fantastic. The range of flags flying in the marina was inspiring and it was good to see the Kent Police flag flying among them.

In the end, it was team work that gave us the result; Teamwork plus hard labour, sore shoulders, bruised knees, stopped hearts and at least one cool head. ….. “If you can meet with triumph and disaster”… Then you were sailing in this year’s Interpol Coppers Cup.
