Sailing Trip in Croatia Out & About Route
Featuring Bryan Benner, The Nautical Troubadour
Out & About Sailing Trip is yet another of our Croatian sailing classics. We visit this region year after year and it keeps providing plenty of surprises each time in the form of uninhabited bays, restaurants, little villages or vineyards where we can taste the local wine.
This sailing region features much larger and higher islands than on Sundown Sailors route and therefore the bays and inlets are longer and deeper. It sometimes feels like sailing pass Fjords. This is a route where we have a chance to visit very well preserved old towns. We visit Hvar and admire the night views over the port. We sail further and taste some wines at Sveta Nedjela, drop anchor at the shores of delightful island of Scedro, and call at Korčula port to have a drink at the medieval tower bar. We visit Lastovo Island, the former pirate base, and see what sort of treasures are to be found there. Every day we drop an anchor for lunch in a remote bay, swim, snorkel and enjoy the weather.
Bryan Benner joins this trip as our musician in residence or, as he refers to himself, “The Nautical Troubadour“. A professional opera singer, classical guitarist and songwriter, Bryan will accompany our voayage in the spirit of ancient minstrels, providing the soundtrack to our journey. We can count on some cozy “tiny desk” concerts in the cockpit of our rafted yachts or at remotely located restaurants. Every musician, hobby or professional, is invited to bring an instrument along as Bryan will be hosting open music sessions for anyone to join. We are excited for this trip to be full of music and singing!
As always no sailing experience is needed to join as our professional skippers will introduce you to everything you need to know. The course if absolutely free of charge, hands on and fun. More experienced sailors will be given roles with some responsibility and can count on some coaching too!
Explore the Croatian Coast on a Shared Sailboat
Join us to visit the Central Dalmatian region. We sail in between large islands where local vineyards produce award winning wines. The horizon line is an eye-candy with peaks close by and further in the distance. We sail from port to port, from bay to bay visiting the gems of the region that we know and discovering new places if the crew feels like.
Sailing in Croatia is very comfortable, the swell is usually small and winds low to moderate. These conditions are just perfect for the beginners. The choice of bays, ports and towns is impressive and there is always something new to discover even when coming back year after year. Each lunch break is spent on anchor, swimming, relaxing or sun bathing.
Our Croatian sailing trips offer a perfect mix of sailing and exploration. There is enough time to learn the ropes, explore the land, and socialize with the crew. We made plenty of experience sailing in Croatia which results in a sailing trip polished to perfection. This is why now we are adding a musical element to it which we found makes every trip so much more fun!
Feel invited to join us sailing in Croatia with the sounds of guitar in the back!
