2017 Sailing Season

Cruising Croatia, Montenegro, the Greek Islands, Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica

The Region

The scattered Greek and Croatian islands make for an almost endless variety of experiences for the cruising yachtsman. Blessed with sheltered anchorages and friendly villages - some still in the grasp of past ages - the region beckons the exploring sailor with delicious cuisine and seductive scenery, and crystal clear warm waters.

Early Season

In early May I will be sailing from Elba to Croatia via the Pontine Islands, Ischia and Capri in the Bay of Naples, the Aeolian Islands, the Messina Strait between Italy and Sicily, and then on across the Ionian to Corfu before heading up to Dubrovnik in Croatia.

June and July

The plan is to cruise amongst the many enchanting islands between Dubrovnik and Trogir, including Hvar, Vis, Brac, and Korcula along with many others.

Corfu

August

We will cruise the pretty and indented Croatian islands between Split and Dubrovnic including Brac, Vis, Hvar, Korcula, Mljet, Sipan and Lopud, and their host of fine anchorages and villages.
Also we may visit Montenegro and Albania which is now opening up to cruising yachts, and is host to some very fine ancient Greek ruins.
Also there are the spectacular Krka Falls to visit up the river from Sibanik.

September to October

Last chance to enjoy some excellent late season cruising as we return home to Elba. It is a real pleasure at this quiet time of year, when the summer weather often lingers on, to cruise again the Tuscan Archipelago and the mountainous coast of Corsica, partaking of the best in Italian and French cuisine.
