The Easter Regatta, a multi-day event, is the best known and, taking into consideration the media and the competitors, the most important standard-sized sailboat regatta in Croatia. The first Easter Regatta was held in 1997 and was organized by PBZ Leasing. The following year, PBZ Leasing was joined by Adriatic Nautical Academy and both are organizers nowadays as well.

The Easter Regatta has "grown" from year to year. In 1997, 14 sailboats participated in the regatta. The following year, the number rose to 45. Since 1999, the regatta has been taking place in the waters in front of the town of Vodice. The number of participants is constantly increasing and it exceeded 100 sailboats in 2001.
