Croatia Cruising and Climbing

We've just finished our first week in Croatia, sailing to the Islands of Vis, Korcula, Hvar and Scedro. We had perfect sailing conditions, with 10-20 knots winds most days. Aboard our Bavaria 46 Cruiser, we were able to set sails to make the cruising very smooth. The wonderful people at Adriatic Yacht Charter provided us with an immaculate yacht for the week. Thank you Goran for your expertise! It's no wonder that sailing in Croatia has gotten so popular. There are a seemingly infinite number areas to sail, whether leaving from Split, Dubrovnik or further north from Zadar. One can wait until the winds are established in the morning, then let those winds take you to some new island, secluded inlet or historical harbour. Thank you to the wonderful Donohue family for sharing this unique week with me.

Sailing on Lake Geneva

Cherries, Stephan and I had a fine, sporty sail on Lake Geneva this early September Thursday. Basile was bouncing and flying over the turbulent waters of Leman, happy to be shaking the spiders from her shrouds. We sailed much of the afternoon with one reef in the main, and no head sail. Gusts over 20 knots kicked up some fine little waves!
