Croatia Featured In Sunday Times Best Sailing Holidays For 2009

Last Sunday, 26th April 2009, the Sunday Times published an article on the best sailing holidays for 2009, in which Croatia features heavily. We're also please to see our friends at Sailing School Croatia included in their 15 "who sails where in the Med" under "learning".
Author David Wickers makes a number of insightful points in the 7 page feature, not least is the fact that a sailing holiday (with a sailing school or skipper for the inexperienced) compares more favourably on price with a hotel based holiday than many might imagine.
Link to Sunday Times for the full feature, Croatia Cruising Companion - Learning To Sail, for our last posting on Sailing School Croatia, Sailing School Croatia, to go direct to their website, and the Croatia Cruising Companion, for more details on the essential guide to sailing the Dalmatian Coast and Islands.
Thanks to Ocean Matters for today's photo of Superyacht Galatea taking in the spectacular view.

Eddie Jordan Picks Elan and Kastela Marina

Co-author, John Nash, had poll position yesterday to watch Eddie Jordan, of Formula One fame, pick up his new yacht from Marina Kastela. John’s MFS offices are based in the marina but he apparently resisted the temptation to check with Eddie that he had his copy of the Croatia Cruising Companion safely on board.

The Elan 450, registered under the Croatian Flag, was specially improved for its new owner and will no doubt feature in the many regattas that take place in Croatia, throughout the year.

Many thanks to Zlatko “Jure” Vujević for today's photo. Similar images featured on the front pages of most of the Dalmatian daily newspapers today.
