The Kornati Archipelago is considered by many to be the most unique collection of islands in the Adriatic Sea. They are declared a national park and have no permanent residents. There are, however, some facilities for visitors. Marina Piškera is an excellent stop on your sailing journey.
Regardless of their excellence, most ports and marinas are rather generic. They all look the same and offer, more or less, the same services. That is why it is sometimes refreshing to stumble upon one that is so different from other marinas. Marina in Sali, Croatia, is one of those special places that wins you over with its uniqueness, mainly due to its charming library.
It is recommended to browse sailing sites, forums, blogs and comments on social networks on the gastronomic offer of the region you are about the sail prior to taking off. Your friend’s advice or an advice of your charter agent is also a good lead not to be disappointed with eating out.

The latest edition of America’s Cup is being sailed on ultra-modern AC72 catamarans using cutting edge technology and reaching some 40 knots of speed with the wind between 17 and 20 knots! Comparison between America’s Cup and sailing as we know it is like comparing Formula One to my first car.
As you approach Pula aboard your charter yacht, you can already see the main sight not only of the city but of the whole northern part of the Croatian coast – the amphitheater.
The Pula Arena is one of the six largest Roman arenas in the world. Today it is a venue for different concerts and can be explored for a small fee.
Since there is no unique regulation on pets on board, first contact your charter agency on their own pet regulations. Some agencies would charge you extra for pets (dogs) on board, while some of them ban pets on board for some reason.
Even though every yacht available at all charter agencies is equipped at least with a GPS plotter, don’t forget that electronic devices are there just to support you in your “traditional” navigation with a chart and a compass.
