Croatia: Coast of a Thousand Islands
The Adriatic coast of Croatia is known as 'The Coast of A Thousand Islands' and its idyllic sailing conditions and easy line-of-sight navigation mean that it has long been a favorite flotilla vacation destination. This historic coastline has it all: majestic walled cities with Medieval cobbled streets, ancient ruins, romantic cities, vineyard-covered hillsides and national parks offering pine forests with deserted coves and crystal clear turquoise waters – one stunning sight after another.
Sailing in Croatia
Setting sail from picturesque Agana is allows easy cruising south to the Islands of Vis, Hvar, Brac and Korcula with their quaint coastal villages and traditional way of life. Brac has charming fishing villages and superb range of dining places, and in Hvar you can climb to the top of the island for dinner at a hillside restaurant with an extraordinary panoramic view of the Adriatic. Have your camera at the ready as you glide past countless panoramic views and enjoy delicious Croatian cuisine.
Favorable Winds And Permanent Sunshine
The climate and conditions are ideal for gentle coastal cruising. Summer temperatures range from 73 – 86 F (23 – 30 C), winds are generally light and variable in the mornings with afternoon breezes and calm nights.
Winds range from 5 – 20 knots. Navigation is line-of-sight. Lazy lines are in use at many town quays and the tidal range is minimal.
If you haven’t been on a flotilla before, here’s how it works. OCSC reserves multiple boats for the location and holds a series of planning parties to explain the details and answer questions from anyone who is interested. Some members choose to reserve a whole boat with their friends and family; some hook up with other singles or couples to form their own boat; a third option is to reserve a cabin on a boat skippered by an OCSC Instructor.
Flotilla charters are ideal for first-time skippers since OCSC helps in cruise planning, introduces individuals to others interested in sharing a yacht, and sends an experienced ‘group leader’ along. The security in this type of ‘buddy-boating’ is a primary reason for flotilla-style chartering, but the ease of participation and ‘instant parties’ make a first charter that much more enjoyable.
We hope you'll join us.
