Love and passion for the sea
sailing as a sailor more than 40 years with a great sail boat experience

Sailing is Miha's biggest passion, indeed he has been pursuing this passion for a long time. Up to now, he has been sailing as a sailor for 42 years with a great experience at sea. This love and passion for the sea originate from his childhood holidays spent on the wild south coast of island Hvar in Croatia, where he also had his first experience with steering a small foldable Klepper sailing boat between two islands in some 15 knots of breeze. It looks that the sailing sensation of going effortlessly fast in relative silence while in direct contact with the natural elements, set a spell on him. 

Miha besides taking part at numerous races for cruisers which he won as helmsman or as crew member got excellent results in racing like:

  • 1st overall in compensated time, Maxi Transatlantic Cup 2011, on 65 feet Karuba, X-65 as one of the helmsmen.
  • 1st in-class Rimini-Corfu-Rimini (1000nM offshore race) 1990, on a 35 feet racer Donita designed by J&J as crew
  • 1st Anzio Bay EurOlymp Soling 1991 crew
  • 3rd Mediterranean IMS championship 2004 (X-43) crew
  • 2nd ORC class 600 world Championship 2005 (X-43) crew
