Corfu to Croatia

Does anyone have experience or advise sailing from Corfu to Croatia against the prevailing NW winds like to be happening in the next month or so.
Is a sail possible heading north on a close haul, or more reasonable/ comfortable to cross to Italy then cross back to east to Dubrovnik?

Re: Corfu to Croatia

We sailed corfu to otranto in italy. Good sail in the n/w wind. Up to brindisi italy, with a westerly. Then caught a south up to cavat croatia. And alot of motoring. So dont teslly know how a full n/w would be the whole way up. As im sure u know its not the funnest bashing into it for 30 odd hrs..

Re: Corfu to Croatia

Do the road less traveled - go to Albania and up their coast with multiple stops


Albania is a wonderful little country - we have sailed it twice and would do it again if were in the area - and we generally don't go anyplace twice
