So, quite a few questions about bareboating in Croatia
next spring possibly?
Background exp: several bareboat
charters to BVI, and one to Windwards, all on monohulls.
certs are in order for bareboating
Companies I've used: TMM, Sunsail, Moorings
No experience with Med Mooring
, and very week 'docking' skills ie: operating a sailboat under power in close spaces... (i'm VERY used to the handling of powerboats)
Now my questions I'm hoping the Cruisers Forums
folks can help me out with:
1) Who to use... I'm not a fan of Moorings due to high costs and impersonal service
i've recieved. Looking for a monohull
(36' or so). I've seen a bunch from google
but lookign for recommendations from people who've USED the companies.
2) I'm coming from upstate NY.... I can fly out of Syracuse, Boston, Montreal, Kingston Ontario
.... I've done a lil research
, and it looks like cheapest way to fly is to fly out of Montreal to Munich and then buy a sep flight to Split. (via redtag.ca ) any other suggestions pf ways/routes to get there?
3)Where to charter
? My wife and I are foodies for sure, so... protected anchorages
that might be off the beaten path a bit? We're def not into the touristy nightlife hotspots, we'd rather hit a pub where we are the only people in the building not from 'up the road'.
4)When to go....? Sounds like June/July/August are best.... but... also the most crowded... most blogs/etc recommend June as cheaper and less crowded than July/August.... anything different?
5)We'd be going sooner, but schedule is full... active US Army here, and with training and multiple deployments.... well... next spring is gonna have to be it. Anyone else going to Croatia around this period?
Thanks in advance!
