I think SunSail are in the ACI marina there.
Sunsail base is in Agana, Marina Agana - not in Trogir.
Agana lies some 8 km from Trogir; very good place to start your sailing.
In Trogir there is Baotic Marina - it's huge marina and there are several charter companies.

Re: A couple of days sailing in Adriatic?

we have done 1 month in adriatic. It was good food, good fresh food markets, and excellent sightseing.

Also not bad vine from local winemaker! That was actually most memorable part.

Forget it if you want to do decent sailing. Just no enough wind or waves. Unless you enjoy sailing 3 kn winds.

So next time I will travel there using ferries Much cheaper and less stress.

Rent a motor scooter ... then travel the islands by ferry

As far a wind the coast of Croatia is fantastic

Very reliable thermals form in the afternoon

Most charters in Europe run for 7 (or multiples of) days, Sat>Sat. Late September you might be able to haggle on a shorter charter especially if you speak directly with the charter co.

Our boat is in a small family run charter fleet in Croatia and a shorter booking would be possible late in the season - message me if you'd like details

Also - do you have the requisite licence for sailing in the countries you mention?
I have the Pleasure Craft Operator Card, which is mandatory here in Canada when the outboard is in the water, and also have VHF license.

Hi Abenko; Iím not sure that the licence you mention is accepted in Croatia - see the link I posted previously https://mmpi.gov.hr/UserDocsImages/dokumenti/MORE/More%209_19/TABLICA_ENG_rujan2019%2017-9_19.pdf is it one of those but called something different on there are none use the word pleasure craft? (The list oddly splits Canada into two sections, ISPA and IYT)

Re: A couple of days sailing in Adriatic?

hi, if you are in italy, ok, you might have lots of options.
italy where? north? south? centre?
if north, end of september, beginning of october...in trieste (NE corner of italy) there is barcolana, a huge event with more than 2000 boats (think is first weekend in october, you can check their website www.barcolana.it): it's something incredible, and there you can be hosted as crew in some boat and participating the regatta.
a week later in venice there is the "smaller sister" veleziana, also you can get in touch with organization and find out if someone can host you.
if you want to sail by yourself you can find something in chioggia, a "small venice" maybe 20nm south of venice, i'm not sure but maybe OLTREMARE has some boats to rent. from there you can reach venice or via the laguna (channels) or via the sea, anyway stunning. swimming: water is not beautiful and temperature might be not so friendly, but getting to venice by boat is priceless.
down on east coast is not so interesting until south (bari, trani and even more south like otranto and leuca) and actually is an area of which i dont have knowledge.
west/south is sicily: eolian islands are a must, and portorosa hosts a lot of charters (turistica il gabbiano, for example), then going north could be nice spend days in pontine islands or costiera amalfitana.
further north for a couple of days elba island and capraia.
further north is liguria and cinque terre (portofino....)
it depends how many days you want to spend at sea.
2 to 3 days think regattas/venice/elba island you can do and is possible find a boat.
more days (1 week) the choice is wider.
