Borrow a Boat In Croatia
Croatia’s long Adriatic coastline and 1000 islands make it an almost unparalleled sailing destination – and it’s now the world’s most popular sailing destination. With more sunshine than Provence or Corfu, it can be reached by the UK in as little as 2.5 hours. And you will be spoilt for choice – sail from Pula on the Northern Istrian coast (famed for it’s olive oil and truffles) or maybe choose Zadar or Split from the middle of the Dalmatian coast, Dubrovnik in the South or the Kornati islands. You will find a wealth of UNESCO world heritage site cities, ancient Roman ruins, a thriving café culture and party towns – something for everyone!
A comfortable Mediterranean breeze averaging 7-8knots makes for perfect sailing weather although this may climb to a force 4 or 5 and watch out for the “Bora”- a north easterly that can catch you by surprise if you don’t check your forecasts!
