Croatia Sail – Day 1 – Arrival & Marina Veruda

Marina Veruda

Crew arrived in Croatia throughout the day. The yacht herself is impressive. A well appointed 46′ Bavaria, very beamy, very modern.

Weather is an issue as forecasts are for strong, gusty winds and 4′ – 5′ waves Sunday. This impacts the planned passage as we won’t be able to sail that day. Was hoping to be able to make it to Unije this afternoon but a delayed arrival makes that look unlikely. Instread will aim for a quick two hour sundowner cruise to acquaint everyone with the yacht and sailing overall.

Dinner nearby. Real shame about the weather and its effect on the trip overall. However, looks like the boat will make 7 knots easily, reducing a lot of our passage times and perhaps allowing us to hit some of the key destinations.
