Just found out the Port Authority are now charging
vessels staying overnight on anchor
in the section of bay close to the Franciscan Monastery.
We were charged 150 HrK for a 40ft (12m) boat.
While I can understand the Croatian Authorities wanting to maximise the revenue from the sailing industry, this seems excessive and could be the thin end of the wedge. It is bad enough that so many bay are now concessions and full of mooring
buoys (not a bad thing in some places) but to be charged to sleep in your own bed
on your own anchor
with no facilities is a step too far.
Apparently between the small island and the navigation
mark is free to anchor.
