Overall a wonderful experience, and great memories. Some feed back, or rather comments on the booking and charter below. Booking was brilliant, outstanding service. On the day of embarkation a lack of communication appeared. Yachtcharterbook.com instructed us to go to base for boat collection from 12 Noon. The Charter company told us we had to wait as the company usually does not handover boats until 5 pm, there was a lot of wasted time, with purchased supplies in the Sun. The Charter company said we had an Australian Skipper, he turned out to be Russian, and the Charter company had never met him.The language issue was frustrating, and an English speaking skipper more appropriate. As such we had no real advice or recommendations as to where to go, we plotted our own course. The skipper is a great seaman, but had never been to some of our destinations, as such did not know the way around, or sea rules on mooring. We were told by other sailing people there skippers knew a lot, and had many suggestions on what to do, including restaurants, etc. This was not the skippers fault, he was a great man, but rather the booking companies, and we believe the skipper was booked only one week before departure. The boat was clean and tidy; however, the diesel gauge was always on 'full' and the effluent tank always said 75% full, therefore we never really knew how much fuel was left or state of black water capacity. Another small issue was the Anchor could have been bigger, as a couple of nights we moved while 'at Anchor' due to a wind change or increase. Putting these issues aside we will 'Sail Again', most likely with a bigger boat. What a wonderful experience. SL.

We did two weeks East Peloponnese flotilla and it could not be better. Our lead crew Jackie and Georgia were very professional and knowledgeable, and took care of everything and everyone. They made sure that everyone was happy and had perfect flotilla holidays. We always had smooth route planning, best moorings and group dinners.

Croatia is famous for its exceeding rural landscape with the extensive beaches which lines almost all its important cities.

The peaceful and calm life of these semi-urban cities is one of the salient features which make these cities stand out of the rest.

Along with this the creation beaches are literally loaded with the marine wealth. The seas are rich with marine life and there are some famous shipwrecks at the sea beds as well. Both of these features make it an ideal destination for scuba divers from all over the world. The wave profile of this region is fair enough to support sailing and surfing so that the watersport enthusiasts don’t feel left out while visiting these places. At the end of the day, the secluded beaches of Croatia are studded with caves and coves.

At the end of the day, it is always advisable to explore the sea while enjoying it at the same time. A speed boat may take you to your destination quickly and back from it as well.

Yachts to be hired come in various sizes and shapes. Depending on their make and model they are classified into certain categories. For exploring shallow waters, catamarans are preferred. Catamarans have a simple hull that is maneuvered by using a pair of rudders. There is plenty of room on board which is suitable for accommodating guests in separate rooms. There is also plenty of room to roam about and hangout on the deck. Catamarans are easy to sail into a shallow cove and even anchor there if you would like to spend some time or even a night or two over there. These trips can be fully serviced along with refreshments and meals to make this adventure an amusing one.
