The regatta will be organized from 28-30 April 2006, near the town Obrovac at the Zrmanja River in the organization of the Rafting center 'Kanjon Zrmanja'.

Also ongoing are preparations for founding a state rafting league which would make it possible for Croatia to have its own national team for competing on an international level.

This regatta has a tourist-sport-recreational character and it is open for all those who enjoy this sport.
