Sail to Trogir and Try to Catch the Hair of Kairos

It is true that sailing to Trogir is not an exceptional quest, reserved only for brave and skilled ones, but visiting Trogir on a yacht or chartering one in the town certainly has a bit of mystique.

Trogir is the place where one of the most beautiful artifacts of ancient Greek art was found. It is a relief representing Kairos, the youngest son of the Greek supreme god Zeus. Kairos was depicted as a young man with long hair over his face, who swiftly moved between people, giving them a chance to catch his hair. He would appear once in a human lifetime and symbolized a lucky moment which would never happen again. Kairos was bald on the back of his head, making it impossible for people to catch his hair from the back. This means that the opportunity has already passed. Kairos inspired curiosity and braveness, provoking people to do brave accomplishment.

With this myth in mind, one could imagine the young god of lucky moment flying through the narrow streets of the old town of Trogir, daring people to start the next sailing trip from one of Trogir’s marinas.

ACI Marina Trogir is located opposite the Trogir waterfront, on Čiovo island, which is connected to Trogir by a bridge. Visitors of ACI Marina Trogir have the best possible view of this medieval pearl of the Adriatic coast, protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Choosing Trogir as a base for yacht charter will not only create an opportunity for an exciting beginning of your journey across the Central Adriatic, but will welcome you with legends, history and art, as well as with a broad gastronomic offer in numerous bars and restaurants after your journey ends.

I wish you a calm sea, a fine wind and a strong mast!
