Sailing Trip in Croatia Sundown Sailors Route
Featuring Bryan Benner, The Nautical Troubadour
Sundown Sailors Sailing Trip is one of our all time favorites. This is the very first route which we sailed on and we have visited it every year since. We have found some truly amazing locations here and want to show you these. We are also keen on discovering new bays or restaurants on this route, so there is always something new for us too and keeps our enthusiasm for sailing this route high!
This sailing region is full of small islands scattered all along the way. It’s a real pleasure to navigate through this maze, stop at remote bays, hike the hills for sunsets and visit a few ancient towns. This is a route where we have a chance to admire the sunset almost every day! We visit Kornati a beautiful national park, the ancient Dalmatian stronghold city of Šibenik, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Trogir, the Kaprije archipelago where we have the highest chance of spotting dolphins and a few secret spots of our own… You can expect to drop anchor in an empty bay, raft the yachts together and enjoy our time under the stars far away from civilization!
Bryan Benner joins this trip as our musician in residence, or as he refers to himself, “The Nautical Troubadour“. A classical guitarist and songwriter, Bryan will accompany our voyage in the spirit of ancient minstrels, providing the soundtrack to our journey. We can count on some cozy “tiny desk” concerts in the cockpit of our rafted yachts or at remotely located restaurants. Every musician, hobby or professional, is invited to bring an instrument along as Bryan will be hosting open music sessions for anyone to join. We are excited for this trip to be full of music and singing!
As always no sailing experience is needed to join as our professional skippers will introduce you to everything you need to know. The sailing course is absolutely free of charge, hands on and fun. More experienced sailors will be given more responsibility and can count on some coaching too!
Explore the Croatian Coast on a Shared Sailboat
Join us as we visit the Northern Dalmatian region. We find here hundreds of small islands, some only as big as your work desk. We sail through the archipelagos of Kaprije and Kornati as well as the coastal mainland. We moor in ports which we like and know but still make time for exploring new anchorages.
Sailing in Croatia is very comfortable, the swell is usually small and winds low to moderate. These conditions are perfect for beginners. The choice of bays, ports and towns is impressive and there is always something new to discover even when coming back year after year. Each lunch break is spent on anchor, swimming, relaxing or sun bathing.
Our Croatian sailing trips offer a perfect mix of sailing and exploration. There is enough time to learn the ropes, explore the land, and socialize with the crew. We have plenty of experience sailing in Croatia which results in a sailing trip polished to perfection. This is why now we are adding a musical element to it which we found makes every trip so much more fun!
Feel invited to join us sailing in Croatia with the sounds of guitar in the background!
