7 days and 7 nights that you will not forget in a hurry

DAY 1 – CHECK IN AT D-MARIN SUKOSAN

We will be starting our amazing Croatia week in Sukosan – just 15 mins from Zadar airport and 1.25 hours from Split airport

Sukosan is a wonderful new marina with a trendy beach club, bar and swim pontoons built into the Adriatic Sea. Drop you bags, check out the yachts, relax and enjoy a drink. Being high season, there is sure to be an amazing vibe here. Welcome drink on arrival for everyone Unwind grab a sunbed and relax as you think about the week ahead.

DAY 2 – SUKOSAN TO TRIBUNJ

Starting on Sunday morning, we set sail from Sukosan sailing south along the coast passing Biograd and the island of Kraj. Pine clad forest surround us and crystal clear torquise waters, disturbed only by passing yachts and fishing boats. This is a magical journey passing close to numerous small islands where we can stop and swim throughout the day.

We finish our 2nd day arriving at the small and picturesque town of Tribunj. Apres sailling drinks on the yachts and a very short walk (20 m) to the bars and restaurants.

DAY 3 – TRIBUNJ TO PRIMOSTEN

For the energetic amongst us, we will be orgainsing speed boat hire and associated skis and wake boards. Just make sure you have health insurance!

In the afternoon we sail south thtough not less than 12 islands befor reaching one of the beautiful towns on the Croatian coast. Bustling in summer with a cobbled streets and water’s edge bars and restaurant, Primosten has managed to maintain all of its old world charm. Wine tasting is planned and a group meal organised at a special restaurant in the old part of town

DAY 4 – PRIMOSTEN TO KORNAT

Day 4 may invoke memories of “I wish I didn’t do that last night” -:)

A morning swim , followed by us sailing in convoy north towards the island of Kornat. We should enjoy excellent sailing heading from the mainland across to Kornat and depending on conditions we make even enjoy our legendary swim at sea (just don’t look at the Depth gauge) . Lunch location will depend on progress and as we sail along the barren landscape of the island of Kornat, take the time to relax and admire the contrasting beauty of the islands. Tonight all 5 yachts will lie at anchor in a stunning natural harbour. Dinghy ashore to explore and photos opportunities.

DAY 5 – KORNAT TO DUGI OTOK (SALI)

We awake anchored within the confines of the Natural park and for those keen a visit ashore to the inland salt water lake will refresh and revive.

Energy will required for Day 5 as crews muster for the annual “Sailing The Med” yacht race where the finest sailors ever assembled (that’s you lot) pit their skill against the luck of other crews to be crowned champions. Winners will adorned with lavish praise, have members of the oppostie sex throw themselves at you and most importantly be toasted and provided with the Cup and numerous bottles of champagne.

DAY 6 – DUGI OTOK (SALI) TO SAKARUN

Day 6 sees us sail north along Dugi Otok towards the most stunning beach in the Kornati island chain (Sakarun). Wonderful shallow and electric blue in colour, we will moor together for our last night and attempt to exhaust all supplies before our final day

See from the hillside above the bay, the sea in Sakarun is an intense turquoise-blue, more akin to the Caribbean than the Adriatic. Sakarun beach is rimmed by an 800-metre arch of smooth white stone, which in turn is backed by lushgreen pinewoods. Even 350m from shore the depth here is just 3.5m allowing endless snorkelling opportunities.

DAY 7 – SUKARUN TO SUKOSAN

Our final day onboard involves a comfortable downwind sail weaving our way between 8 different islands as we sail back towards our starting location (Sukosan). We will stop by the famous city of Zadar, take a swim anchored near the outer sea wall and look at the famous Sea organs which are powered by the waves. We stay our final night on the boats and we will have a celebratory dinner and drinks involve prize giving for best crew and some other awards at D-Marin beach club. For those with an early flight on the Saturday…..God help you

For the rest of us, the end of one epic adventure signals the start of another, as we transfer to some villa accommodation in Zadar to enjoy the 3 day long weekend in the city voted Europe’s best city for culture in 2016.
