The first week of our Croatian flotilla has seen sunny skies, great sailing and happy holidayers aboard the lead yacht and flotilla yachts. Lead yacht Rok has great sails and the crew has tacked, trimmed and become at one with the boat. A stunning sunset looking out over the Kornati islands has been a highlight as has Croatia’s little known but exquisite gastronomy each night with grilled fish, smoked Dalmatian prosciutto, cuttlefish risotto and octopus salad… worth the airfare in itself! A sad farewell today to Jeanne alias ‘Seal’; for being the first to jump in the sea when a line was needed ashore and for wrestling mooring balls up onto the deck! Welcome aboard Rob from San Diego – you have big shoes to fill. Jivili from Croatia! (cheers in Croatian)
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?
