Overview

Our trip starts and ends at the bustling and beautiful city of Split. This is a hands-on sailing experience under expert supervision . It promises to be a real sailing adventure led by a world leading skipper (2023 was led by Guy Waites). You will be fully immersed in all aspects of sailing including passage planning and victualling as well as actually sailing this beautiful yacht. It will also be a relaxed schedule with time to stop at some of the wonderful ports along the coast and explore at leisure and, with a maximum of six crew, we will adapt the itinerary to suit individual wishes. The trip suits singles and couples (we have double and single cabins available) and there is no previous sailing experience required. Given the skippers vast experience, it will also suit people who want to get some practice sailing miles or hone their existing sailing skills, for example the possibility to practice celestial navigation. Just ask and we will adapt to your wishes if we can.

Skippers

To be confirmed

To be confirmed

Our skipper is to be confirmed, but in 2023 the Croatia trip was led by Guy Waites straight after returning from his circumnavigation in the Golden Globe Race (GG2022), arguably the worlds toughest sailing challenge. Guy is typical of our skippers, having exceptional sailing experience, including skippering the Clipper Round the World yacht race as well as crossing the Atlantic several times 'solo'. A calm and patient leader.

Itinerary

The itinerary here is a guide - the actual route will depend on the wishes of the crew and the local weather. We build each trip around the group and take account of your wishes as we go so no two trips will be exactly the same - this is not a cruise, it's a sailing adventure.
