prices and tourdates
We start our flotilla sailing
which is close to the Cornati Islands.
Hundreds of little islands, inhabited or not, offer a variety of beautiful
and varied anchor bays. A flotilla sailing tour through the Cornati Islands
as well as the northern islands to Silba takes about 1 week. After that we
return to Sukosan and the sailing-trip can be continued for a second week on
a different tour. This time we sail south of Sukosan. A trip to the Bay of
Sibenik and further 4,5 nautical miles inland on the river of Krka to
Skardin (center of the Krka National Park) is a most beautiful experience.
We will anchor at the lovely ACI Marina. From here you can walk to the
well-known waterfalls of the Krka-river. Moreover, we might sail to the
islands west of Sibenik.

DDue to unforeseen weather conditions on this sailing-trip,
the above mentioned tour description is subject to change.
The "Maestrale" (summer-wind)
brings moderate, northwestern winds up to 4 bft. When the Adriatic Sea is
affected by an Atlantic low-pressure-system the "Schirocco" might blow with
up to 8 bft. Especially between Murter and Split and also close to Makarska
the "Bora" might blow from the north-east. This wind is as strong as a storm
with gusty wind-peaks that may appear without warning. Usually we have
north-western winds at 2 bft and therefore pleasant sailing days.
north-west in week 22 , 28 , 30 , 32 , 34 , 36.
south-east in week 21 ,
27 , 29 , 31 , 33 , 35.
Boat- and sailing-licence:
A boat- and sailing-licence (eg. the
Croatian Sailing Licence) is obligatory. According to Croatian law all
sailing yachts need to be equipped with a VHF-radio. That means that at
least one crew member needs to have a radio-certificate
radio-certificate can be passed by means of an exam at the local harbour
authority. We recommend to pass the exam for the VHF-radio-licence at a
sailing-school in your home-country prior to your arrival.
Marinas, ports and anchorage:
There are plenty of marinas, smaller
community ports and fishing harbours in Croatia. Services and supplies are
good in major harbours, in smaller ports you can buy only the most necessary
items. Prices in bigger marinas are rather high. An alternative to marinas
are the so-called "Konobas": These are small pubs at the coast which allow
sailors to anchor at their place for free according to the motto: "who eats
here may anchor for free".
But there are plenty of good spots for
anchorage along the coast. In some inlets you find bouys for landing with
costs for yachts. We try to find a reasonable mix and go once or twice a
week in marinas, anchor at Konobas and in beautiful bays.
