Sailing in Croatia: Canada Day and Independence Day celebrations in Croatia

Arriving in a hot and humid Split mid afternoon we were greeted by crews from Australia, Canada and the States. We were delighted to welcome back family Stoll from Australia and the Caffrey’s from Florida for their second trips with Poseidon. This first Croatian departure of 2012 had Rhapsody as the lead yacht and Arkina, Maya I and Anambra on flotilla with us so a great fun group of 23 people. The trip started with the first swim stop in the turquoise waters at Primosten and an incredible evening under the stars in fresh water at Skradin. Greeted by family of swans, we took a mooring buoy, tied to a tree on shore and cracked open the first bottle of champagne to celebrate Canada Day. Three days later we celebrated with more champagne for the 4 July Independence Day celebrations! It was a perfect start to the Croatian sailing season with crews having fun getting to know each other and swapping stories. Croatia was proving to be a big hit with everyone loving the first few stunning anchorages at quiet Vrulje, charming Vis, chique Hvar and enchanting Lastovo.
