Relaxing and Sailing in Northern Adria

When my sister Gabriela and her friend Herbert arrived in Marina Stella on Sunday, August 5th we celebrated with a nice 6 course fish dinner at Trattoria Barcaneta in Marano. Early at sunrise with high tide we left Laguna di Marano east to Punta Faro, Lignano and with slight northerly wind we sailed south east to Umag, where we declared entry in Croatia. We explored the bays south of Umag, saw some jelly fish, and finally dropped anchor in Uvala Mujela north of Novigrad for relaxing two days. We swam over to the Kostanjija camping site to buy some bread.

Wednesday, 8th we sailed south, had a relaxing swim in Uvala Crlena Zemlja, continued to Vrsar, and moored in the marina. We explored the old city and had a Croatian dinner at Kod Luce. Next morning we moved to Stancija Valkanela for a long morning swim and a healthy breakfast. Then we sailed north to Novigrad, where we took a buoy and had dinner at Konoba Cok.

After a bumpy night with much swell we declared exit and left Croatia for Porto Buso, where we anchored inside Laguna di Marano in front of Isola Anfora. We took the dinghy to Ai Ciudi, where we sampled many exquisite fish dishes and drank local Prosecco. After a quiet night in the lagoon we motored inside Laguna di Marano west on Litoranea Veneta with minimum depth of 1.3m and reached Marina Stella at noon. At Ristorante 900 all'isola we finished our cruise with a delicious dinner.

We sailed 29h and logged 110sm in 6 days. You may download our track in gpx-format or view it directly on GoogleMaps.
