A SUCCESSFUL SUPERYACHT WINTER GAMES IN THE SNOWY NORTH

The Porto Montenegro ACREW Super Yacht Winter Games headed to snowy Kolasin in northern Montenegro for another edition of the marina village’s thrilling winter sports and entertainment event catered to crew members

Participants put their skills to the test with skiing, snowboarding and snow biking among the more common winter activities, as well the less conventional Bigfoot, a game in which teams compete against one another whilst wearing oversized wooden skis – it’s all part of the fun! The first prize of €3,000 was awarded to the Montenegro Adventures team and all participants enjoyed an afternoon of rural gastronomy and a closing party at the 1600 Ski Centre to round off their trip.

What a fantastic weekend it was! The Trident Montenegro crew had the best time, joined later by our colleagues from a Croatian fleet. It was a wonderful way to spend time together and a great teambuilding opportunity, commented Trident Captain, Murray Tomkins, from Australia.

This was my best experience in Montenegro so far – the games are fantastic, the energy among the teams is great, the food is phenomenal – Kolasin is a true mountain retreat. My team will definitely be taking part in the second edition of the games in Porto Montenegro at the end of next month, added Vu Nguyen, owner of Blue Saga, which is berthed in the Porto Montenegro marina.

This winter challenge has been conceived by the Porto Montenegro Crew Club, also offering a multitude of activities to crew throughout the year; from movie nights, bowling tournaments and wine tasting in winter, to weekly beach parties and waterside BBQs in the summer. This years’ partners of the event were ACREW and Red Bull.

After bracing the mountain challenges, we prepare for a second weekend of activity and competition coming up at the end of March. This time, we’ll be going offshore for sailing and a decathlon, organised by the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club. The idea of the games is to integrate all winter activities available to our clients and mark the end of the winter season with a fun and interactive sporting and social event, said Marina Marketing Manager, Jovana Zivkovic.

Second chapter of Super Yacht Winter Games will be held 27th to 29th March in Porto Montenegro marina and is opened to all interested superyacht crew in the Adriatic and wider Med area.
