Re: Cruising Guide For Croatia and Montenegro?

All great information so far. What type of sailing certification do I need to show in Croatia? If I don't have a certificate, can one be obtained in Croatia, or will I be turned away? Are there fines or penalties for not having one? I've heard that a certificate can be obtained in Montenegro for less than $200 following a short exam, can anyone confirm this?

Probably you are talking about the ICC (International certificate of competence). If you can find a RYA certified school they cab give you one in one day, after examination. Probably there are more schools that can pass them.

The Imray Italian Waters Pilot book arrived yesterday. It's excellent.

Re: Cruising Guide For Croatia and Montenegro?

Ken, I also recently got the Italian Waters pilot by Heikell (9th Edition) but for the Adriatic it only goes up as far as Brindisi and does not cover anything further north on the E coast. I met Lu Heikell at a recent CA meeting in London but unfortunately Rod was sick in bed. I have always used their Pilot books for many years and the only one i had with me at the time was a 1998 Edition of their Greek Waters Pilot which she kindly signed for me.

For the Croatian side of the Adriatic you need the 777 but i guess you got a copy of that already. The Imray Adriatic Pilot (by T&D Thompson not by Rod Heikell) will cover both E coast of Italy and Croatia but think 777 is best for Croatia. I have used it extensively and found the 777 excellent.

Thank,

I already have the Croatia guide book 777. I think I mistakenly responded to the wrong thread I'd started. Together, I'll be using both guides to round Italy, head up to Montenegro then onto Croatia.

Re: Cruising Guide For Croatia and Montenegro?

I am heading to Croatia this Sep to cruise between Zadar and Split for 2 weeks. Any suggestions for the itinerary and places not to miss? We are equally interested in nice quite anchorages, small picturesque towns and historical places. Reading on recommendation on this forum I just ordered 777 Harbours and Anchorages , but wold like to hear first hand advice.
Best regards, Alex
