Re: First charter: advice needed for Europe
As stated previously we sailed north of Split into the Kornati reserve. My wife and I were talking recently about Croatia. We think the best route would be from Split to Dubrovnik. This would be a wonderful 2 week charter and going from north to south would be on the prevailing wind track. Man, that would be fun!
As far as charter companies I would go with Sun Sail or any large established charter company. We used Sail Croatia, it is was not good. Generally we like the smaller charter companies but in Croatia I would go with established. It won't be cheap but you will avoid the mess we got into. Most charter companies in Croatia focus on flotilla charters but they say they can do bareboat, they can do bareboat, they just suck at it. What ever you do stay away from Sail Croatia.
