Sailing in Croatia week 1

Six weeks can fly by so quickly and as the first half of our sailing season came to an end in Greece, we went through the travel vortex to arrive in Croatia with yet more wind! The Croatian summer Bura wind, meant the first day was a longer stay in Kastela.  The winds at the marina topped out at 42mph but were consistently over 30, so we opted to spend a day exploring and resting and some guests visited the Roman ruins at Salona. Monday we were off on our brand spanking new Hanse 415 covering 45 miles to beautiful Lastovo. The Hanse is a precise, sure footed boat with a good engine that zips along at 7.5 knots. The oversize main and smaller self tacking jib have allowed us to broad reach and run all day at the same speed as under engine. ‘Elena’ as she is called, is a joy to sail and offers ample room in a huge sweeping cockpit. The Adriatic is a endless deep blue and the islands are green emeralds, it is so nice to be back in the Dalmatians!
