Sailing in Croatia - ready to give informations
 
Dear users,

I have registered only a short time ago. Soon I found out, that there is not very much information available about the Croatian coast, which was my favoured cruising area for the last 20 years. So if you have questions about Sailing in Croatia donīt hesitate to aks right here, maybe I can answer :)

Basics
 
Dear Users,

I would like to point to an interesting website about sailing in Croatia: Adriatic Croatia International Club | ACI Marinas gives you a good overview about the aerea including basic nautical informations, port facilities, local weather conditions and so on - all in English.

Additionally, I may disadvise you to go there from now until 15th of August. Due to summer holiday in Italy (Feragosta) there are thousands of motor boats crowding all ports and sailing there in this period is not a pleasure. If you think about a charter trip in Croatia you should choose any week after 15th of August until the end of September. In spring you will find perfect conditions during May and June.
;)

I want to return for advice about cruisiing in the Adriatic, but right now I want to second Christian's observation about sailing in the Med and environs in August: the marinas are full, the restaurants are full, the anchorages are full. It's a good time to go to Paris, whch nice and quiet!

I would say you are right about Croatia specially on the Islands near Split (central Croatia). Much less crowded on the North Croatia, along the coast and in the South.

Regarding Greece it is a lot less crowded, you don't have to pay for buoys (you can anchor everywhere) along the coast is not crowded and even on the Islands you generally can find always a place. I have been several times the only boat in an anchorage, even on Islands, In August. You just have not to follow the crowd.

In between you have Montenegro, you can anchor everywhere without paying, it is less crowded than Greece, I would say not many boats considering August, and live is cheap. Excellent food and wine;)

I am glad to see that my thread came back to life...:D
And thank you for confirming my high-season-warning for Croatia. Montenegro is an alternative but similar destination, this is correct - and all sailors in this area should be glad about the relatively new sailing area.
Nevertheless, my best choice around the Adriatic, is still Croatia in spring: May and June, from Zadar down to Dubrovnik, this is paradise.
