Croatia Sailing JULY 2017

Jeanneau 53 - Evolution II

Marina Agana - Trogir


Marina Agana to Vinisce

Anchored off Marina Agana, dinghy had a small leak so called Sunsail who promptly brought a replacement. 40m of chain in 10m of water worked well. Tried out the paddle boards.
Set sail while at anchor and sailed to Vinisce.
Safe anchorage, water taxi to Konoba Vinisce. Noisy bar played music until 2am was the only downside.

Vinisce to Drevnik Veli (west) for breakfast, Sevid for lunch, Rogoznica (east) for night

Drevnik Veli, beautiful clear water, great morning spent at anchor.
Wind increased and came out of the West, so shelter sought at Sevid. Dan and Ben paddle boarded.
Rogoznica (west) wall might be an option for the future. This time we picked up a mooring on the East side.
Ate at Le Piaf.
Wind increased dramatically by the morning.

Rogoznica to Drevnik Veli(north) to ACI Marina Trogir

Great sailing this morning, peak speed 9 knots. Rarely dropped below 8.
Found shelter from SW wind behind Drevnik Veli for lunch.

Head winds back to Trogir, motored all the way.

Much excitement with two Canadair Super Scooper fire fighting planes refilling every 3 mins.
Moored on East side of E .
Peka at Konoba Teute - excellent.

Trogir to Sveti Klement

Said bye bye to Jessie and Ryan
Set off at 10am motoring to Necujam for lunch.
Stern to shore mooring.

After lunch set off for the Pakleni Islands, and booked a mooring with Paradiso.
Another boat had it's mooring break so set a precautionary anchor for overnight.

Sveti Klement to Vis

Slow sail to the Green Cave on Ravnik. Much fun towing inflatables.
Anchored for lunch off the Green cave

Decided on taking things easy and with NW winds forecast for overnight, the decision was made to moor at Rukavac, free mooring at Diamond Beach Club

Vis (Rukavac) to Hvar to Bobovisca (Brac)

Pleasant sail to Hvar- Dolphins!
Lunch at anchor Hvar Town.
Fast sailing to Bobovisca. Konoba Vala booked but had to arrive in harbour by 1700

Bobovisca to Marina Agana

Very windy, blowing across the boat, so we moved before breakfast.

Two bays round to the left.

Waited for predicted NW wind to pick up then set off for lunch and fuel at Rogac, Solta,

Fantastic sail home

Ate at Konoba Hila - excellent
