Together with my sister Gabriela and her friend Herbert I came back to Cres by car on Sunday 9th July 2017. Next morning after bunkering some supplies we set sail south with weak westerly winds and anchored near Osor in quiet Uvala Radiboj. Next morning at 9:00 am we passed Osor channel southwards, rounded the south coast of Otok Cres and finally anchored in Uvala Meli. We swam to the sandy beach and had a nice walk in the dense woods. In the evening we experienced a violent but short thunderstorm with 8 bft gusts.
Next day at noon we passed the harbor of Veli Losinj, motored though the crowded channel between Otok Ilovik and Sv.Petar and spent the night at a bouy in Luka Krivica. Next morning with choppy northeasterly winds we set sail at first reef and tacked north with nice speed to Uvala Ustrine, where we anchored in the quiet north bay. The autopilot ceased working - all hydraulic fluid was gone. We decided to repair it when back in Cres Marina.
