Marina Dalmacija, Bibinje-Sukosan 1 street, 23206 Sukosan, Croatia
On the first day when you arrive, you will meet your crew, pick up groceries for the week and get a chance to experience Sukosan. This tranquil town is the perfect place to begin getting to know everyone with a nice welcome drink and dinner at a local restaurant.
This remote island has just one restaurant and a long pier. This is a great place for us to practice our mooring skills and then our tasting skills! We will practice stern-to, side-to, bow-to, using lazy lines and the anchor.
This area has many buoys which gives us the perfect opportunity to practice buoy mooring both by sail and on motor. Finish out the day with an amazing sunset and delicious dinner.
Here with its hundreds of islands, we will practice day navigation. We will work as a team and you can get a chance to take command of the yacht. Work on your skills in delegation, communication and quick decision making while you skipper!
We will put ourselves a distance from shore one night so we get the chance to experience night sailing! With the help of your skipper, you will divide into shifts and the safety of the rest of the crew will depend on you for a bit. Practice log writing, watch keeping, night navigation and sip a hot beverage to help you through the night.
We can’t know for sure where we will end up because we depend on the wind, but we do know that we will find ourselves in one of the many remote bays. These are good locations for practicing laying landlines and anchoring. Then we will have some time to enjoy our surroundings and go over some theory topics.
UNESCO HERITAGE TOWN
Depending on where the wind takes us, we will stop at one of the historic Croatian cities. Here we will get to sightsee and take in some of the culture as a reward for working so hard the rest of the trip.
Finish out the trip reflecting on the skills learned and miles sailed with your new friends!
Return: Saturday at 9:00
