Croatia - Sailing through?
"A yacht is the ideal place from which to bask in Croatia's stunning coastal scenery. The 700km (434 mile) island-peppered littoral that runs from the Istrian peninsula in the North to just above Dubrovnik in the south - the Dalmatian coast - is prime sailing country. From the air it is a half-completed jigsaw puzzle with hundreds of pieces waiting to be fitted in. From the sea, it is a labyrinth of lavender-scented mountains soaring from the water."
Rory Ross, The Times, June 21st 2003
Croatian coast line during charter season is an excellent way to see and enjoy small and uninhabited island that are otherwise very difficult to reach by ferry lines . Conditions for sailing are great, because there are no big waves and high sea, no long distance routes across the open sea and many ports to stop and rest .
Croatia - Where to charter a yacht?

With its reliable winds, good marina facilities and sheltered harbours, the Dalmatian coast is fast becoming one of Europe's most popular sailing-holiday destinations."
