Sailing conditions

Croatia is a great yacht charter destination for beginner to experienced level sailors. The best time to sail is May through October.  A sailing license/certificate and VHF radio license is required for bareboat and flotilla yacht charters. If you are on a skippered bareboat or cabin charter, you do not require any experience or certification to sail with a skipper.
