For this trip, two British families now living in Switzerland were aboard White Lady II and on King, a couple from Wisconsin, USA. Barb and Wayne were old hands with us after sailing in Greece aboard Margarita just two weeks ago! After the first lunch stop at Primosten we headed up the Krka river to spend a fun night at Skradin – Connie, Lara and Zoe, the beautiful young daughters onboard White Lady II we’ll never forget your squeals of delight at the swans vying for ritz crackers! An interesting mussel night followed where at midnight a storm arrived with up to 50mph winds, thunder and lightning – the skippers aboard the yachts didn’t sleep much that night…fortunately, the next evening was beautifully calm on mooring balls at Solta. One week trips are over all too quickly and this trip was no exception so after Solta we headed to Stari Grad, Hvar and finally Bol Beach, Brac followed by another great sail back into Split. White Lady II family, it was a wonderful week with you and your girls, their characters made it a perfect ‘little’ flotilla! Barb and Wayne, what a holiday for the Poseidon crew with just the two of you onboard – thanks for choosing to sail in Greece and Croatia with us…remember to let us know which one is your favourite!!
If you've already been to Greece, the chances are you've seen and quite likely bought a Cycladic statue as a souvenir, but do you know the history behind them?
