In our latest youtube video, we sail to two of Croatia’s hidden gems, places little visited by yachts or tourists: Korcula, the birthplace of the sailor and adventurer Marco Polo, and Mljet National Park, the first marine part in the Mediterranean with its beautiful two lakes.
In our latest adventures sailing around the world, we sail to Vis, one of the islands furthest off Croatia’s coast. Being so far from the large centres, it doesn’t get the huge influx of tourists or any cruiseships, leaving it mainly to visiting yachts. We visit the charming village of Komiza and discover the idyllic Diamond Beach.
In our latest YouTube video, we sail to Croatia’s party island Hvar and it’s idyllic islands, the Pakleni Islands.
We visit Hvar Town’s spectacular Venetian fortress that was built with the help of Spanish engineers in the 13th Century, head to some beach bars, and get into some maintenance tasks, including scrubbing Tranquilo clean and fixing El’s feet after stepping into sea urchins.
In our latest YouTube video, we sail into Dalmatia, swimming its crystal clear waters and exploring the spectacular historical towns of Primosten and Split.
We also look at passage planning Tranquilo style (with PredictWind software and our Croatia Pilot book) and address the challenges of Tranquilo’s deep rudder.
Continuing our sailing around the world adventure, in our latest video we sail to Zadar where we head inland to visit the world heritage Plitvice Lakes, before sailing back out to the islands of Croatia and the largest bay in the Adriatic, the wild, rugged and beautiful Luka Telascica with its salt lake, Jezero Mir.
We are joined by our friend Kalena and Aiden takes the outboard for a spin for the first time, taking charge of our Yamaha outboard.
