Poseidon’s second week in Croatia on flotilla was a mix of perfect sailing conditions and fun – renewing old friendships with repeat sailors. Two repeat racers from Ottawa joined aboard the lead flotilla boat while the Smith-Lavery families who sailed with us in Greece in 2011 reunited here in the Adriatic aboard flotilla yacht Tina, a Jeanneau 53. The boats have performed incredibly in the daily favourable winds of 5-18 knots and we’ve stopped in at Dubrovnik, Mljet, Korcula, Vrobaska and Omis – to see where the famous pirates of Omish came from. On the second week the highlights have been Stari Grad for a magical evening meal at La Gitana restaurant, followed by Bol beach, Hvar town, Vis, Solta and Skradin to see the Krka waterfalls! The best thing about Croatian sailing is that the daily sails are a perfect duration between island stops – much less than the distances between Greek Cycladic islands!
As we see the world slowly starting to get back to normal post COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited that the gates to international travel are also beginning to open.
Have you ever pictured yourself swimming with pigs? We guess not! Well it is a real thing you can do in the Exuma islands if you take a sailing vacation in The Bahamas.
