Some of the best Youtube videos we found about Split is featured in our article below with links to pages on our site.
Charter a Yacht from Split in the Mediterranean and you should plan to spend as much time exploring the local area by land as you do sailing. Beaches in Split are beautiful and a major attraction in the area. The historic architecture is fabulous despite much restoration work due to recent troubles. Split is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean.
The Croatian weather is typically the Mediterranean, meaning dry, warm summers and reasonably mild winters. With 2,600 hours of expected sunlight yearly, Croatia has one of the sunniest coastlines in Europe. From May things get warm with temperatures of 30°C during July/August, dropping to around 23°C in September & October.
The prevailing wind in Croatia is from north-westerly, with average winds of less than10 knots. Generally, winds increase in the day up to 20 knots making sailing some exhilarating sailing! Keep a lookout for the ‘Bora’ – a northeasterly that can surprise you, so check your forecasts regularly.
“Day 1 we tack from Slano to Korcula for over 11 hours, and we enjoy the challenge of mixed wind. We love being on the water, so no complaints here! We anchor in Korcula at Racisce, and it’s nice to get some rest after a long day on the water.
Day 2 is a 50 nm sail from Korcula to Brac. We begin the day early and experience 30-knot winds for a couple of hours before it settles to 20 knots and with a mild sea state the sailing conditions are excellent. Originally I want to stop at Hvar or the Pakleni Islands however the anchorages are crowded. We decide on Uvala Smka, an anchorage on Brac Island with an old submarine garage which is perfect for the night.
Day 3 is a 20nm sail from Brac to Split. Like the day before we are fortunate to experience great winds, blowing between 20 and 25 knots. The reason we are in such a rush is that there are no winds predicted in the following 4 days and we are meeting Trace’s brother Jason, so we are eager to get there. There are few anchorages in Split but find a great spot off Luka Poljud which is a 10-minute walk to the old town, PERFECT!”
Visit the Mediterranean and Croatia you must go to Dubrovnic it has lots of history to share, compared with some ancient coastal cities, only a few stand out as much as Dubrovnik. Known as “the Pearl of the Adriatic”. Dubrovnik, Croatia in the Mediterranean, is considered by many to be one of the best-preserved medieval walled cities on Earth. Croatia in the Mediterraneanoffers ideal weather for those new to coastal sailing, with gentle winds and fair sailing. You will spend many pleasant hours on the deck.
Dubrovnik’s historic castle fortifications are surrounded by picturesque white stone buildings that are a delight. Terracotta roofs stand out against the rich azure blue of the Adriatic in the background. Mediterranean life has not changed in this place for thousands of years. This is a fascinating town suffering damage during the war. Dubrovnic is now restored to its former glory.
