Some of the best Youtube videos we found about Split is featured in our article below with links to pages in 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 expect 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 an average winds less than10 knots. Generally, winds increase in the day up to 20 knots making sailing for 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. We originally 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!”
Croatia has lots of history to share some ancient coastal cities few stand out, as much as Dubrovnik. Known as “the Pearl of the Adriatic” Dubrovnic is considered by many to be one of the best-preserved medieval walled cities on Earth. Croatia in the Mediterranean offers ideal wether for those new to coastal sailing, with gentle winds and fair winds. You will spend many many pleasant hours on deck.
Dubrovnik’s historic castle fortifications being surrounded by picturesque white stone buildings 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. A fascinating large town suffering damage during the wars is now restored to its former glory.

Climate & Weather in Croatia – Coast
The Croatian coast has a typically Mediterranean climate, hot, dry, sunny weather during summer, and mild – although it can sometimes be wet in the winter.
Average temperatures in summer should are expected in the mid-to-high 20s °C/77-86°F, although it is expected that you will experience temperatures well into the 30s °C/high 80s or low 90s °F.
Winters are considerably cooler, although temperatures never really drop below 5°C/41°F. Anything colder than this is considered as freak weather, though technically not impossible. In the last decade, there has been snow in parts of Dalmatia, such as Zadar and Split.
Mediterranean winters suffer regular storms (one to three per month on average) fortunately the weather varies a lot between countries. A good example of this variation exists in mainland Spain. The mainland of Spain is mild and sunny, while the Ionian Islands of Greece (not so far away) are wet and cold. The Mediterranean low season typically runs between October and April.
