Sailing in Croatia

After a couple of days in Rovinj with Al and Lynn, we took a car service to Pula where we chartered our 43' sailboat for the week.


We had a little motor sail to our first anchorage.  It was crowded where we were heading, so we found a place far away from everyone.  We anchored just in time for It was a really good decision, as a storm came up in the middle of the night and two boats dragged.

We sailed to the beautiful town of Cres shown here in all its brightness and glory.

We had a great downwind sail today but we had 25 knots, so the phones were put away.  We made a yummy Italian dinner tonight with a beautiful salad and garlic bread.  And amazing wine.


The next morning we had a calm anchorage for a swim after breakfast.

motor sailing is good for napping


And sun bathing

Upside down anchor means no anchoring


We took a little tour through the Brijuni Islands

It was a wonderful trip!  We highly recommend sailing in Croatia.
