Can’t decide on your summer vacation? Looking for a good tournament? Why not both?
Join us at Svetivinčenat, in the heart of Istria, Croatia, inside the castle Morosini-Girmani where an epic tournament will be held! The tournament will be held inside the castle walls giving us shade while also be able to purchase any drinks from the in-castle bar which also makes cocktails so you can fully embrace the Chill.
The current categories are:
Sidesword (24 participants)
Sword and buckler (24 participants)
Longsword (24 participants)
The tournament will take place over two days, with sidesword, sword and buckler being on the first day, while longsword will be on the second day.
You will be allowed to participate in more categories (for a small fee) if there is space in other categories. Priority goes to fencers which selected the category in question as their primary category.
Keep in mind that it is safe to assume that the tournament will have tourists and visitors that will watch the matches. Also, since it’s an outside tournament we will be exposed to the elements. Rain is highly unlikely, but heat is probable. We will make sure to be in the shade when possible and have lots of water on site. More details will follow.
Istria is famous for its wines, truffles, olive oil, beaches and many other delights! There are many sights to see including a famous arena in the city of Pula. If you would like to make a fun, HEMA spiced, extended vacation, this is it!
