I want to thank you for the quality of the service you have given , besides the fact that the Croatian area navigation that we discovered is exceptional.
I would add that we had a chance insolent on the weather map .
In, fact, we the 13 days of the nav wind between 10 and 30nd days following the sun with permanently air temperature 30 ° on day 17 at 20 ° at night, but mostly I pistais few days before taking possession of the boat the possibility of a latch NO to SSO and only a period of two days . Why we went south under spinnaker through the Kornaties , and up the river Krka with the boat and visiting the waterfalls of Krka park of the same name after 6 kms of walking and are properly talk breathtaking , given a wealth of incredible habitat and very little pollution. For your information, I fly fished this river last year in Slovenia, where it takes its source and Croatia.
It was already a great moment , facing a beautifully preserved environment and a very low pollution , the result of a poorly developed agriculture and awareness of Slovenian governments , Croatian , Bosnian, Montenegrin and Kosovar it seems t , who became aware of the environmental wealth creating many nationaux.je park fly fishing in the Balkans every year since 1998 , to find water quality and cleanliness that unfortunately we do not have in France and in many European countries except perhaps the Nordic countries.
On Saturday we had the incredible opportunity that the rocking wind SSW result I suggested to my friends to align miles for two days under spinnaker to reach the north of Croatia to the island of CRES and then the wind has switched back to NO for us to complete our stay even downwind ! The foot.
In fact we have done almost 1.5 days and 2 days of tight engine. And about 485 million, of which 2 days 9 nds loan average !
Every evening we were at anchor, with the exception of 2 nights spent in port . We tore the genoa because emissions cable backstays for setting a very aggressive cleat sending pavilion, I made contact with the base to inform and we did stop on Saturday , in the morning or Sunday ! We larguions off for the genoa North repaired. Really nothing to say about the service knowing that the repair was supported by them.
Every 2 or 3 days we were at a port pout refueling water . We brought aboard a small boat fishing net, fishing rods , and gun -Pull of fish for snorkeling, result we ate fish, whelks and other squid regularly fruit of our fishery. Again it was great . Unfortunately, we have not seen dolphin while we went back north to navigate in a nature reserve dedicated to them. According to the Croatian sedentary population dolphin would be limited to 50 ! It seems that they migrate more .
Do you know why the islands Kornate not growing ? Answer because the Croatian voluntarily burned vegetation for some reason we do not know . We will do the research to understand the motivation of the voluntary act. My friends and their children who discovered for the first time sailing cruise and Croatia are excited and want to go back to relive those intense moments they are not ready to forget.
Be aware that they have not had seasick except two of them ( father and one of his children ) because 3 hours of sailing to windward islands in heavy seas and very brittle by 40 NDS wind , then navigate leeward islands 30NDS flat sea ! What's great is to have the ability to browse at any time leeward islands flat seas .
Thank you again and we get ready to organize another trip in two years in Croatia this time starting from Dubrovnik to the south and Montenegro.
For information, I went to Zadar Bordeaux by RYANAIR via London for a return ticket € 387 .
