AHOY CROATIAN SAILORS!
By Katarina Tepesh
A group of Americans, all members of an environmental group, are organizing to sail from the port of Split, Croatia on Saturday, June 24th and return the next Saturday, July 1st, 2006. We will visit the islands of Brac, Hvar, and Vis, spending one or two days in each port with some flexibility in our itinerary depending on weather and our whims.
The yacht we have chartered is a new 50 ft. Bavaria which is richly appointed. The vessel has 5 staterooms which will accommodate a maximum of 10 crew members. There is a roomy galley and gorgeous salon where we will prepare and take our meals together communally. The cabins with separate single berths are $995 PP, DO. The double berth staterooms which are a little larger are $1,050 PP, DO. A private double stateroom is $1,895, for seven nights with partial provisioning as outlined above.
We will have 7 nights aboard which will include all breakfasts and 3 lunches, 3 dinners. Other meals will be taken ashore in the quaint harbors that we visit. All crew members are invited to participate in the running of the boat. The Captain Michael Miller is a US sailing Association Certified Sail Instructor and enjoys teaching beginners. No sailing experience is required to join the crew.
Croatia has an incredibly diverse history from the many civilizations that have ruled it over thousands of years. Split has Diocletian's palace which was built for the Roman emperor. The city of Dubrovnik to the south was completely walled in for defense. The country is a historical treasure. Now that peace has been restored, it is just being rediscovered as amazing tourism destination. The islands are said to be majestically beautiful with each having its own unique personality.
If interested, you are welcome to call or write Michael Miller, to answer any further questions.
