Reasons Croatia is the Best Sailing Destination in the World

Croatia has been paradise for sailors for centuries. It was a dream for pirates in the Middle Ages and the queen of maritime traffic in the Mediterranean. Its unusual and indented coastline offered a safe haven for sailboats, and its friendly climate made sailing a dream up and down the Adriatic Coast - so long as the northern ‘bura’ wind wasn’t blowing.

We’re bringing you a list of the oddest foods you’ll encounter on the Croatian coast hoping that some of them will one they reach the fame of Oysters or those funny-smelling black fish eggs, or what they call them – Caviar.

Unwritten yacht charter etiquette for guests

Being at the sea gives you a unique sense of freedom, a luxury to wake up in a different place every day, an opportunity to explore hidden bays and coves, and a whole different perspective of the land surrounding you. Some places are just completely different when you are entering their port and admiring them for the sea. We can all agree that spending your holiday on a yacht is a special and unique experience, different from any type of accommodation on land. Being on a yacht is a completely different social environment than anywhere else and carries with it its own set of rules. Whether it is your first time on a yacht, you are a yacht expert, or a guest aboard someone else’s yacht there are some unwritten rules you should respect when onboard and they are mainly the same despite some differences between different types of vessels.
