Tack till Finn Andersen som har skrivit nedanstående reseberättelse om sin segelbåtstur i farvattnet omkring Dubrovnik. Läs också del 1 av hans reseberättelse, här får du fler av Finns bra tips till nya seglare i Kroatien.

Vi är tre segelpar från Isefjorden som de senaste 5 åren har varit på segelsemester i Kroatien. Senast (september 2017) åkte vi till Dubrovnik.

Seglatsområdet sträcker sig från Korcula i syd till Skradin och Zadar i nord. Mot öst avgränsas det av fastlandet och mot väst av de yttersta öarna i skärgården.

Om man vill utvidga seglatsområdet mot syd rekommenderar vi att ni hittar en båt i Dubrovnik eller en båt i Pula för att segla mot nord.

Skärgården ytterst ut mot väst från Biograd är en del av Kornati Nationalpark, och här ska ni komma ihåg att betala för tillåtelse att lägga ankare. Du kan betala på charterkontoret i hamnen. Glömmer ni det, kan det bli dyra böter som ska betalas!

En huvudregel i det här området är att, där det är vatten kan man segla – trots att det inte är vad man förknippar med en skärgård i Skandinavien.

Väder

I högsäsong dvs i juli och augusti blåser det typiskt 0-3 sekundmeter dygnet runt. Himlen är blå, 25-30 graders värme och en vattentemperatur på långt över 20 grader. Det är underbart på havet men våldsamt varmt i hamnarna. Man lär sig snabbt att komma iväg på morgonen och att först hitta en hamn allra sist på eftermiddagen, om man inte väljer att ligga för svaj i sin egna lilla bukt. De svaga vindarna betyder också att det blir mycket motorseglats.

I början av september när vi seglar kan också bjuda på många varma och lugna dagar men typiskt har temperaturen fallit några grader och det kan vara dagar när det blåser 5-7 sekundmeter. Vi har också upplevt regn och blåst på 10-12 sekundmeter, men då vattnet och luften fortfarande är varmt är det fortfarande seglats i shorts och t-shirt som gäller. De flesta seglar ändå stora båtar på 42-45 fot så de klarar vind och vågor bra.

Segelsemester

Som ny seglare i Kroatien, som kanske också är den första turen, där ni har samlat en större besättning av familj eller vänner, det gör ofta att besättningen har helt olika nivåer av seglarerfarenhet och olika förväntningar inför semestern.  Det kan skapa bakslag på en båt, där man lever så tätt inpå varandra och hela tiden ska ta samlade beslut om allt från mat till båtordningen till segelplanen. Så ta ett snack om era förväntningar innan ni åker hemifrån. Vår erfarenhet är att det här är en bra ide!

Här är vår modell:

Vi var från första seglatsen överens om att det skulle vara en slappa-bada-sola-mysig-god mat – kall öl- segeltur och mindre en seglar-segeltur med många loggade sjömil.

Vi avtalade också att killarna fördelade dagen emellan sig, där de som kaptener hade sista ordet angående segel eller motor, lunch och badstopp, ankring, hamnmanöver med mera.

Tjejerna intager fördäcket med böcker, filtar och solkräm och de kan ”overrule” kaptenen och kräva när som helst att genuaen halas in om den skymmer solen.

Vi valde också att ha en mer avslappnad båtordning än vi övat på hemma. Men på de stora charterbåtarna finns det också gott om plats till att torka kläder, personlig utrustning och även att ha fendrarna på däck!

Vi hitta under vägen en naturlig fördelning av matlagning och rengöring, där alla hjälpte till.

Och precis kl. 11.00 varje dag blir G&T (Gin & Tonic) serverat på fördäcket och uppsamlingstanken blir tömd.

Det enda vi har valt att ta med hemifrån är rågbröd och lakrits och naturligtvis gin som vi köpte på flygplatsen. Köp med er rikligt med tonicvatten innan ni seglar ut då det kan vara svårt att hitta på de små marknaderna man stöter på under vägen.

Vår seglatsplan den här gången

Split-området bjuder in till många veckors semesterupplevelser.  Vi har seglat i området 4 veckor sammanlagt och vi har fortfarande lust att komma tillbaka för att hitta nya platser samt att återbesöka gamla destinationer. Det bra vädret och den vackra naturen har också varit en anledning som gör att vi har lust att återvända!

 

Vi ger här två förslag till en veckas seglats där de valda hamnarna/övernattningarna naturligtvis kan ändras till en trevlig bukt för eget ankare.

I högsäsong är det trängsel i de populära hamnarna och restaurangbukterna och kommer man i slutet på dagen är kajplatser och bojar upptagna. Alternativet är eget ankare eller att ankomma tidigt, vilket dock kommer med risken att man blir stekt i värmen.

Men,men, men – på vår första resa åkte vi med en lös resplan, seglade ut i det blå och hade en fantastisk segelsemester. Så glöm inte spontaniteten. Området bjuder in till upptäcktsfärder och att hitta sina egna listiga platser och bildsköna ankarbukter.

As an extra service, we offer the possibility to help you arrange a yacht charter with a crew included, which ensures the possibility for a sailing vacation for everyone. The hiring of a skipper is not only for the inexperienced sailors, but it can also end up being a great addition to the holiday as the skipper is local and therefore knows all of the hidden gems, do´s and don'ts at the destination. If you need a further reason why a yacht charter is the most amazing form of vacation, let us show you some of our favourite destinations. Whether it is your first yacht charter or you are an experienced sailor, these destinations are clear-cut winners when speaking of unique holidays at sea, due to the climate, culture, the hidden beaches and cliff formations that are only accessible by boat. Furthermore, the cosy atmosphere in the ports and the local people and cuisine makes a yacht charter unique.   Split, Croatia   Croatia has been a favoured destination for yacht charters for some time now, and understandably so. We specifically have fallen in love with the area around Split, a port city in the central part of Croatia. Split caught our attention due to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea, combined with the possibility of visiting the small magnificent islands of Hvar, Brac and Vis, which are all worth a visit! These three are just to name a couple because the sea along the Croatian Coast is sprinkled with around 1000 small beautiful islands. Some of the most popular islands for visiting yacht charters are around the Dalmations islands located near Split. The islands vary a lot in size, shape and possibilities when on land. There is a lot of history related to these islands as they were the outposts in ancient time, which is why some of the islands have historic castles and fortresses on the hills. Outside of these fortifications, you will find small and old cities that offer a wide variety of local specialities and excellent restaurants with a view of the sea. Other islands are still wild and untouched as they are uninhabited. These islands and waters are part of the Croatian history and culture which makes them somewhat sacred to the locals, and they are therefore protected as national parks. So when you sail through the passages in between the islands, you are travelling through ancient history with a view of the clearest waters, rocky islets and ancient villages. We recommend yacht charters to not only explore Split and the surrounding sea and islands but also to make the trip to the two neighbouring cities of Primosten and Trogir. As a nice additional convenience, the airport in Split is very close to the marina, which makes the transfer between the two very easy. The high season runs from April to November, however, there are different sub-seasons within. In May and June, you will under normal circumstances experience a calm and pleasant wind of around 15 knots from the west. This makes this area ideal for yacht charters for families. If you like the waters even calmer, July and August usually have less wind than in May and June. Furthermore, the average daily temperature is a comfortable 23°C. Take a closer look at the wind and weather reports for the area. So in short, a yacht charter to central Croatia and Split offers a magnificent mix of wonders from the beautiful scenery, pristine beaches, cosy islands and cultural experiences in the ancient towns and ports. Also, the wildlife in the area is worth noting, both on land and underwater, as there are some amazing snorkelling opportunities. Our top reasons for visiting Split on a yacht charter Easy and gentle navigation at sea Kornati National Park The city of Split, which is a UNESCO world heritage city The three beautiful islands of Hvar, Brač, and Vis A wide variety of easily accessible bays The ancient and culturally rich Trogir   Athens, Greece In Greece, there is a long and proud tradition for sailing which can be traced back to ancient Greece, and you will immediately understand this when you start to explore the waters of The Saronic Gulf and Cyclades. Because of the sheer beauty of the area, you will understand why the Greeks have always been drawn to the sea for these superb views and waters.This is a great destination if you are looking for a yacht charter with perfect conditions for sailing, with pristine landscapes draped in ancient history and culture as you sail past the historical cities along the coast, old ruins from a time long ago and remote islands. But it's not just all culture and old towns as the port cities of Greece offer pulsating life, a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and amazing cuisine.  The two main cities of the Saronic Gulf are Athens and Lavrion which offer the perfect point of departure for a yacht charter, as the airport is close by and there is a lot to experience in these cities, which are among the oldest of our civilization.We highly recommend that you sail to the Dodecanese Islands or the Sporades as these islands have everything you could dream of on a yacht charter, plus so much more.  This extensive sailing area ensures that there are conditions for everyone. For instance, if you prefer a quiet and calm journey, we can recommend a trip in the Saronic Gulf, as the winds here are light and the waters are well-protected and relatively flat-bottomed. If you prefer a bit more wind when sailing past the historic sites and the Aegean Archipelago, the Cyclades are the place to go, as there is a bit more wind but equally beautiful historic sites, modern conveniences and cosy destinations ideal for relaxation.  Generally, the conditions in the Saronic Gulf is ripe for sailing as the tidal difference is quite small, around 1-2 feet, and the currents are not a concern either. In the sailing season from April to October you can expect blue skies and delightful weather, with an average temperature of between 24-28°C. If you feel like taking a swim in the water, you should not be worried about the temperature as it is around 27°C. It should, however, be noted that the sailing areas are closed from 1st of December to 1st of April. Our top reasons for going on a yacht charter in The Saronic Gulf and the Cyclades Some of the most picturesque surroundings in all of Greece Calm and historic villages with attractions for everyone Beautiful and welcoming beaches Sailing through the Saronic Gulf between the peninsulas of Attica and Peloponnese Snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing at untouched beaches The Greek islands of Kéa, Hydra, Aegina, Sérifos, Syros, and Kythnos which all have rewarding attractions   British Virgin Islands, Caribbean Yacht chartering in the Caribbean, and especially in the British Virgin Islands, is something everyone should try at least once in their life, as the water, climate, and surroundings here is something very special and will make you think you've arrived in paradise. What makes a yacht charter special is the protected waters in which there are loads of water activities, the many modern marinas and last but not least, the islands which are full of attractions unmatched anywhere else accessible by sea. All of this combined with the fact that the marinas at the British Virgin Islands are easily connected to the mainland by flight makes the British Virgin Islands the worlds most popular destination for yacht charter. The British Virgin Islands are a group of more than 25 paradise-like islands and they are located in the turquoise waters of Central Caribbean. Among the most known of the islands are Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda and Anegada which offer a lot of opportunities both around the islands but also on land if you feel the need to get land under your feet and have a closer look at the authentic Caribbean atmosphere and culture.  Another reason to charter a yacht in the Caribbean is the vast opportunities. For example, you can enjoy the most relaxing holiday onboard with a crew, which will make your life in the Caribbean feel like heaven on earth, or you can choose to captain your own boat and be in complete control of when and where you are going. Yet another reason for going on vacation in the Caribbean, is the white sandy beaches, the colourful reefs, and the perfect water. In short, if you are going on a yacht charter in the British Virgin Islands, only your imagination can limit the opportunities available as there is something to suit everyone and every need. Even though the British Virgin Islands are located on the outskirts of the Caribbean Sea, the conditions for sailing is optimal, as you will experience a unique combination of trade winds, minimal currents, and protected waters. In addition to this, there is next to none unmarked hazards, great navigational aids and never far to the next anchorage or protected strait were you, without any concerns, can drop anchor or pick up a buoy. All of this makes the British Virgin Island ideal for inexperienced sailors. Our top reasons for going on a yacht charter in The British Virgin Islands The mountainous islands that are remnants of extinct volcanoes, which makes the islands so fertile Majestic rock formations and flooded caves The beauty of the coral reefs The optimal conditions for yacht chartering for everyone The possibility of getting the best of both worlds, from both the sea and on land on the islands The wide variety of activities We always offer the best prices and we are members of the Danish Travel Guarantee Fund (no. 753).
