Sailing in Croatia

Executive summary by darmansjah

The Croatian coastline has some of the finest vistas you’ll find anywhere. The area also has near-perfect sailing conditions, thanks to consistently sunny weather and gentle winds.

The Ideal time to sails is in May, June and September. The weather is warm and the waters perfect for swimming, yet the seas are not as crowded as in the high season.

Sailing specialist Adriatic Holidays offers bespoke trips with a choice of up to 100 different vessels, from regular sailing yachts to wooden gullets and even 100-foot mega yachts. Whether you’re a fully qualified skipper or a first-time sailor, they can handle all aspects of your adventure, operating out of ports across the coast, including Split, Zadar, Blograd and Trogir (from US$1,215 per week for six, un-skippered, or US$2,155 per week for four with a skipper.

To skipper a boat, you’ll need to hold various internationally recognized qualifications or pass a Cratian short course and exam – it’s much easier to find a boat with its own skipper and  crew, not to mention more relaxing.

Anyone can enjoy a sailing holiday, including children if well supervised. There is a wide range of options for different needs- for example older passenger often opt for a more comfortable and spacious gullet over a regular yacht.

Learning from a bona fide Dalmatian Coast skipper might just be the best way to gain sailing course. Just let the organizer know in advance and you can lend a hand and learn on the job.
