Past (1979- 2014)
It was an act of utter optimism, according to everyone who has seen the boat, but Saša decided to give it his very best shot, determined to repair her and take her around the world once again.
Future (2021 -->)
We aim to restore her to make her fit to sail the Adriatic and for that we are starting a campaign “SailSTRONG!” to fund the refit. Stay tuned for more details!

Facts & Figures
Sponsors of HIR 3 revival
Restoration of HIR 3 was an endeavour in which many have pitched in, either by lending their hands, free work, or by donations and support. Without their help it would be impossible for us to get her to sail again in such a short time.
Sailing Club HORIZONT from Poreč was our home base when we started repairing the boat. For two years members have participated in HIR 3 restoration by offering help or advice, or just by offering support and encouragement.
For three years Poreč was the home for HIR 3, at the very beginning of refit and once she started sailing. We are grateful for the support and hospitality.
The family shop supported our refit with custom made upholstery which made HIR 3 livable and feel more like home.
