I am skippering (doing a "bareboat" charter of) a 45 foot sailboat as part of a "flotilla" - a group of boats following a lead boat, out of Dubrovnik. Our itinerary is preliminary and will ultimately be very weather dependent. We will typically have some time each day to swim and explore ashore. Most stops have marinas with good bathroom/shower facilities, but we could also spend a night or two anchored in a quiet cove. The currently posted trip cost is based on a CABIN SHARE that I am looking to fill FIRST. This must be a woman, to share with another woman who is a friend. Once that spot is filled, I will update this trip with the "Saloon" bunk. That can be taken by a male or female; because it is at single occupancy, it will be at a higher cost. Sailing experience preferred but not necessary...the desire to learn and help is what's key. This will be an active week! The right personality fit is also important. Once you have made your deposit, we will set up a time to have a conversation. 💰 The posted cost includes: - Bunk, shared security deposit (returnable after trip, if all goes well), shared insurance, fuel, provisions, and mooring fees. We will eat breakfast & lunch onboard, but typically dine ashore at night (those meal costs are extra). Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions 📬

Day 2-3

Slano

Day 2-3

This is where we are likely to go on Sunday, and there will be a punch party on the beach in the bay upon arrival. I haven't been here before but it should be fun! For some pictures reference the site of flotilla.

Day 3-4

Mljet

Day 3-4

This is where we are likely to go on Monday. Mljet is an island with a national park. We should have some time to go ashore. I have pictures of the island from various angles on the water in my photo journal edition from December 2021.

Day 4-5

Korcula Old Town

Day 4-5

We are planning to sail here on the day of Tuesday, where there is a medieval town (which is the birthplace of Marco Polo) to explore the surroundings and discover what this place has to offer for us.

Day 5-6

Lastovo

Day 5-6

Wednesday's sail is slated to bring us to this interesting island...the farthest one off the coast of Croatia where people live year round. It has a cove with an old submarine bunker - and I have pictures of that location and town around the corner as well in my photo journal.

Day 6-7

Prapratno

Day 6-7

This is a possibility for Thursday, as it will be a "free sailing" day as we make our way back towards Dubrovnik. If not, perhaps we can return to Mljet and explore more of the island. Like the rest of the week, it will be very weather dependent.

Day 7-8

ACI Marina Dubrovnik

Day 7-8

We return to Dubrovnik on Friday afternoon July 29. We'll step off to stretch our legs around town, and have a great celebratory meal ashore. While it is possible to depart tonight, you can stay onboard and leave Saturday morning (must be off the boat by 9am). If you are flying out of DBV on Saturday, we can share an Uber. (My flight is at 11:20.)
