Flotilla sailing Croatia
Croatia has a mild climate and excellent sailing weather. In the summer it is about 30 degrees and the weather is stable, there is a good wind, called the Mistral. The wind is moderate and usually no more than 3 to 4. In May and June the wind strength is perfect, but in July and August there are periods of very calm wind and therefore ideal for flotilla tours.
This flotilla in Croatia is especially suitable for families with young children. At the special flotillas for families there is an animator available for fun activities with the children. And it is also ideal having one more person to keep an eye out. Also the daily sailing miles are not too high.
Novice sailors and families
Participants of flotilla sailing in Croatia are often novice sailors or families with children, who want to discover new waters safely. But also for the experienced sailor flotilla sailing is fun, since you sail with more boats and people. After the briefing, each skipper sails independently to the agreed port, and in the evening you will meet the other sailors back in the agreed harbor or bay. So, whether you are an experienced sailor or not, sailing in a flotilla is an unforgettable experience for both young and old.
ICC sailing certificate obligated
For flotilla sailing in Croatia, an ICC is obliged. If you do not have an ICC certificate, you can also charter a cabin at the accompanying lead boat yacht. Do you want to prepare for a sailing trip, you can just ask for our special flotilla courses in the Netherlands.
Sailors who choose a flotilla, choose for this for several reasons: firstly, it is comforting that someone can help you in difficult situations. But it is also interesting for more experienced sailors, who have already been in the area quite often because sailing in a flotilla is very social. The children are happy all holiday long because every night they see their friends in the port! Or they can even sail along one day on the yacht of another family so they can play all day. For the adults, the social aspect is also great fun. For example during a barbecue on one of the uninhabited islands, the friendships increase.
On the lead-boat of the flotilla is an experienced sailor/skipper available who can help with all common issues. If you need guidance to sail, anchor, or any other issues, then the skipper can be reached by radio or he can even take over your yacht if necessary. So you are assured of a safe sailing trip!
