REST – Rotaract European Sailing Trip

REST (Rotaract European Sailing Trip) je iz klubskega »teambuildinga« v treh letih prerasel v enega najbolj prepoznavnih mednarodnih Rotaract dogodkov, ki z jadranjem združuje rotaractovce s celega sveta. Teden jadranja sta v letu 2016 že tretjič organizirala Rotaract klub Ljubljana in Rotaract klub Celje. Flota devetih jadrnic s skupno več kot osemdeset udeleženci iz sedemnajstih držav je septembra obiskala najlepše kotičke srednjega Jadrana, med drugim Split, Hvar, Vis in Brač.

Poleg čudovitih trenutkov, ki jih ni mogoče opisati z besedami, dogodek spremlja tudi dobrodelna nota. Zbrana finančna sredstva v višini 2000 EUR smo namenili projektu Mirno More Marina Kaštela, v sklopu katerega so organizirali teden jadranja za socialno ogrožene otroke iz Doma Maeštral, Split. Poleg finančnih sredstev pa smo s svojim delom in drugimi materialnimi prispevki omogočili lažjo izvedbo celotnega projekta Mirno More.

K vnovični organizaciji REST-a nas vsako leto žene izjemno zadovoljstvo udeležencev, ki ga brez zadržkov označijo za enega najboljših tednov njihovega življenja. Dvakratna udeleženka Dorina Ivancis (Madžarska) nam je odgovorila na nekaj vprašanj in podoživela svojo nepozabno izkušnjo z zadnjega REST-a.

Why do you keep returning to REST?

  1. In three words: REST THE BEST!

But a bit more seriously: first of all, I think the HOC team did an amazing job in the past events (I have never been to such a well-organized Rotaract event before – even though I visit many international events). From the moment you check-in until the end … more, until forever … you are being taken care of in every way. Accommodation, food, programs, sightseeing, social project, networking … all included.

2. I really like the fact that it is not just an event, it became a brand, a family. (I don’t know whether you created it as HOC or it just happened because of the amazing people one shares these moments with). Let me explain: it feels amazing that all of our participant groups are still active on social after years and years. I love that we have our little “secret” and exclusive REST lunch or dinner at almost every event, that we have our little cheeky smiles and inside jokes … and when somebody asks: »«Where did that story happen?« … you just say: »At REST,« … and everybody knows what it means!

  • The sea and the sailing: it gives you such freedom you can’t have everywhere.

    4. Because of the people  I don’t think applying for REST this year is even a question. OF COURSE!

And of course I could go on for pages, but I think my space is limited.

What is your favourite memory from REST?

My favourite memory … Ohh, it is so hard to highlight just one. But I really love those nights when we are anchoring in one of the bays and all the boats are tied together, and basically you can choose the “topic of the night”: either you want to hang out on the party boat or on the chill boat, or the game boat … because the participants just create these random events.

Why would you recommend others to apply for REST?

Spending one week next to the sea is a nice holiday. Spending one week in the sea on a sailing boat is an amazing holiday!

BUT spending one week in the sea with 100 other Rotaractors is the BEST HOLIDAY EVER!
