Mediterranian Charters

I am going to my wires homeland in Europe in a few weeks and we are trying to plan an excursion. I have been trying to find a good place to charter a sailboat somewhere such as Greece or Croatia for a week but I am completely new to this. I don't have any formal courses but I do own a 25' here in Halifax NS and I crew a J30 in the local races. That is to say I know how to sail and I am thinking the North Atlantic probably offers some challenges that I wouldn't find on the Med.

I'm not looking for a massive boat, in fact I would be happy with anything with a cabin (my wife might disagree ).

Looking for information from someone who may have done this in the past. Any help would be appreciated.

Id suggest it might be the other way round!.

The big centres and Croatia, Greece, Turkey. If a newbie, perhaps you might consider the mainstream operators like Sunsail/Moorings. There web site has all you need to know.

Re: Mediterranian Charters

In Croatia you probably will need to have formal certification ( there is a list of acceptable certifications somewhere on the web) and also VHF radio operator license. In Greece, they would prefer you have one , but you might be able to get away without it. Try to contact charter company directly and see if they will consider your experience.
