Brief description of the holiday
Boarding Saturday afternoon at the Kastela marina in Split around 4.00pm / 5.00pm.
Welcome aperitif offered by the crew (Agata and Alessandro) and presentation of the boat, safety notions and rules to be observed on board.
Once the boarding is finished and the shopping is done, we will move to the island of Solta which is in front of Spalato at about two hours of navigation, sheltered, to have dinner and still be ready to spend the first night at anchor.
In the morning, after a refreshing bath, we could set sail for Hvar . In front of the town of Hvar there is a small island full of very beautiful coves where it is possible to anchor to fully enjoy the sea. After a day spent bathing, diving, landing on the beach, snorkeling and relaxing, we will take a buoy close to the town center and then disembark with a tender and visit one of the most beautiful and alive Croatian towns.
Monday morning departure for the island of Korcula. Here, too, the aim is to stop during the day in the most beautiful bays and in the evening to visit the beautiful city of Korcula, being able to choose whether to eat on a boat or go out to dinner outside in some nice local restaurant.
Tuesday morning we finish the tour of the island to discover other enchanting places where we can stop for a swim. Transfer to the island of Lastovo , a natural park.
The island offers many opportunities for lovers of active holidays and in contact with nature who land on the island with the idea of exploring on foot, or by bicycle.
the ideal way to explore the island by land is undoubtedly the bike - there are several paved roads with little traffic, paths through woods and pine forests or along cultivated fields, walks through historical and archaeological sites and walks along the seafront or along cliffs that plunge vertically into the sea suitable for all types of athletic training, even for beginners.
On the island there are over 200 km of trails that can be used for walking and climbing and since there are no poisonous snakes, it is possible to fully enjoy the walks and explorations.
Diving - Diving:
Diving in the sea of Lastovo is a unique experience that allows you to discover the breathtaking beauty of the cliffs, of the depths of the Croatian Adriatic . There are corals, algae of all kinds, rare and colored fish, shells, but also wrecks of sunken ships, archaeological sites with amphorae, bays and cliffs ...
The paradise of the divers is the stretch of sea around the Lastovnjaci islands, in the eastern part of Lastovo and the diving centers of the island organize guided tours on the best sites as well as courses for those wishing to learn this enchanting sport.
Diving is allowed only with a guide belonging to an authorized diving center and there are sites that are part of the Lastovo Natural Park and are subject to fairly restrictive rules.
The authorized centers of the island of Lastovo are two: the center Ancora in Zaklopatica and Diving Paradise in Pasadur. Particularly worth seeing is the underwater passage of the small island Bujelac, the cave of the Tajan island, the wall of sea fans that reaches 80 m of depth below the Struga promontory.
On Lastovo we will also spend the day on Wednesday, being able to choose between the various alternatives offered by the island. Departure on Thursday morning for the island of Vis and Bisevo where there is a beautiful blue cave to see. In the evening stop in the city of Vis.
Departure on Friday afternoon to Split after having spent the morning discovering the last secrets of Vis. We stop in the evening on the island of Brac and in the city if we want to take a last walk or dinner at the restaurant or on the boat. Departure Saturday morning to Kastela marina and disembarkation at around 10 am
I would like to point out that all the movements in the places mentioned will try to make them always sail. The boat is equipped to face in total safety: strong winds, rough seas and even weak wind conditions (Gennaker).
There is also the possibility, for those who wish, to actively participate in everything related to the management and maneuvering of the boat (moorings, anchors, sailing etc.) since I am a sailing teacher in life you can take advantage of it for make your holiday an opportunity to learn in complete relaxation!
the proposed itinerary can be modified according to the crew's preferences, trying to please everyone (weather permitting) you can make detours or prolong stays in one place rather than another.

Other important information
The suitcase: bag or soft bag (no rigid luggage). Content for the summer on the boat: few items but carefully chosen and with which you feel comfortable and at ease. Short sleeve polo or t-shirt, Bermuda shorts, flip flops with a rubber sole (Heels are strictly prohibited on the boat)
For less hot days and for the evening (at sea it's always cooler than on land) gym shoes or boat shoes with a white sole, long-sleeved sweatshirt and long pants or a gym suit, a light jacket (type k- way).
Credit cards and some cash since, in Croatia, there are Kunes (in many places they also accept Euros but it will happen to meet places where they do not accept them)
Bring with you any medicines you need to use. However, the first aid kit with emergency kit is present on the boat.
Remember that the water on board should be used sparingly, despite the boat's large 800-liter tank.
On the boat, you give us a hand in cooking, cleaning and tidying up because we will be a crew and helping out is nice.
Those who choose a holiday on a sailboat must be aware that going by sea is a philosophy that requires certain attitudes, such as being willing to share the spaces and needs of others J
Finally, the sunscreen!
See you on board!
