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!
Summer may be over in the Med for 2022, but in the Virgin Islands it's summer all year round especially at the US Virgin Islands Yacht Show!
You've decided you want your sailing vacation to be relaxing with crew but how do you know if a skippered charter is enough, or if a luxury fully crewed yacht is the experience you dream of?
