Do not be fooled by the size of the Adriatic Sea. Even though it takes only a small part of the Mediterranean, there are various kinds of sailing conditions. This makes the Croatian coast excellent for all types of sailing activities. Why not charter a yacht and participate in Mrduja or Gladuša regatta or take your friends or colleagues on a flotilla sailing holiday? Cruising along the coast on a yacht in the morning, spending an afternoon swimming or snorkeling, and enjoying Mediterranean wine and Croatian cuisine in the sunset sounds like a perfect sailing holiday.
