Crossing a narrow canal with boats in bad weather with currents and strong winds

Gusts of bora, rough sea, pronounced sea currents: conditions that are far from ideal for crossing the Isthmus of Privlaka, in Mali Lošinj, the narrow channel that connects Kvarner with the bay of the island town (to be clear, where the swing bridge that opens twice a day). In the video shot on the morning of Thursday 22 August, here are the daring yachtsmen who face the “gut”, repeatedly risking (and in some cases not being able to avoid it) to touch the concrete banks with the sides of their boat. All under the eyes of a small crowd of frightened spectators. Bated breath and chills guaranteed. .
