Super sunshine scenic sailing surrounded by history! Do have a look at our blog from a previous cruise in Croatia with SailCork. Crew meet at Dublin airport or at Dubrovnik airport to be transported by mini bus to the Marina. Relax by the bar/restaurant and pool whilst Skipper, Eddie checks out the boat. Jo will get provisons onboard. By lunchtime, we are all aboard and heading out to our first destination. View the stunning countryside from the sea and soak up the history. The next 6 days will involve visiting a different island every day, great sailing followed by time to visit the various towns and sample the local hostelries and do some shopping. Such islands like Miijet, Lastavo, Hvar, Korcula and Ston to name a few. On our final day, we sail by the beautiful city of Dubrovnik before coming back to the Marina. We then head into the city for some exploring and a final meal ashore. Sunday, fly back home.
