Mediterranean Summer

Dear friends,
I'll be headed to Europe at the end of July. I want to sail the Adriatic to Croatia, Greece, and maybe on to Cyprus, Turkey, and the Black Sea. I'll be staying in Venice with my sister, so that's a convenient jumping-off place for me, but I'm flexible.

Does anyone have insight on this lil dream of mine? Are there folx in the region who do this sail? I could also go west around Italy, France, Spain, Morocco.

Last fall I sailed Maine to New Orleans, mostly offshore and with paper maps (can't beat that old skool) on a 29' Cape Dory, and I'm ready to hit it again!

Thoughts? Suggestions? Connections?

Fair winds,

Re: Mediterranean Summer

A great area to sail in. We are based in the Ionian island and love it. I'm told that Croatia can be expensive. The Adriatic Aegean is proobably 800+miles each way. The winds are mostly northerly and can get strong in open seas. There's plenty to see and enjoy. Sites like noonsiite and jimbsail will give you plenty of information.
