Zadar it is. All yours Fallard
I spent two weeks cruising in Croatia and stopped by in Zadar several times. Croatia is a fantastic cruising area. Easy sailing, lots of beautiful Islands, lovely local towns and villages and great food.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Zadar looks like an interesting place, with quite a bit of history, including Julius Caesar, pirates, and so forth. Apparently it was one of a few walled ports in the Adriatic.

The next place to discover is on the other side of the world from Zadar. We're looking for the name of the port or the name of the bay in which the port is found (beyond the airport).

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No reason for thinking this but it feels like New Zealand.

New Zealand is too far south.

Yes, it is in the Pacific Ocean and it is north of the Equator.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes, it's Port Allen, in Hanapepe Bay. All yours, Jon.

Port Allen doesn't look much like a cruising destination and has a commercial feel to it. It is a fuel terminal, but also is a base for catamaran tours of this end of Kauai, particularly the spectacular Na Pali coast. Similarly, the airport offers helicopter and plane tours. Just around the corner--about 5 nm away--is Waimea, where Captain Cook became the first European visitor to the Hawaiian islands, which he named the Sandwich islands after the acting First Lord of the Admiralty, in 1778.
