Sailing Round Northern Croatian Islands

My experienced crew Eva, Evi and Ilse came on board on Saturday, August 26th 2017. From Cres Marina we set sail south, stopping at sandy Uvala Zanja for a swim into the famous Blue Cave. In the evening we anchored in lonely Uvala Radiboj and cooked fish with couscous. At 9:00 next morning we motored through Osor Channel and sailed with light winds to the south coast of Cres, where we anchored in Uvala Meli, enjoyed a walk in the woods and swimming in turquoise waters.







Under cloudy skies and westerly winds we sailed to Otok Rab next day, where we moored in the city harbor and had a nice dinner at Konoba Rab. Again with sunshine we sailed south through Barbatski Kanal and then northwest along the Velebit Channel. Strong easterly winds pushed us into the westerly bay off Lopar, where we anchored finally having a nice swim and crispy salads for dinner. On August 30th we sailed north to Krk and then west along the south coast of Otok Krk. With slight winds we rounded Otok Plavnik and anchored in Uvala Sv. Juraj.


After a visit to Krk town next morning we sailed east to Opatija, where we moored in ACI Marina Icici. We walked along Franz Joseph Promenade to Opatija, where we had a trendy dinner at Restoran Ruzmarin. Heavy rain and thunderstorms woke us next morning. After noontime we set sail south through Kvarner Gulf and finally moored in ACI Marina Cres, where we had a nice dinner at Konoba Roza.





We sailed 33h and logged 148sm in 6 days.
