    5 essentials that will help plan your sailing vacation

    Prepare in advance and make your sailing trip on a charter yacht as smooth as possible. We give you 5 important tips for planning your vacation.

    Preparation and planning ahead makes many things easier and can also be a good guiding principle for life in general. Being organized is half the work and a well-prepared and organized vacation is no different.

    It is a good decision to plan ahead before you go on vacation so that there are no surprises and no missing things that you need. You should also plan your meals in advance so that you do not find yourself in the middle of the open sea without food or other essentials.

    And now you have decided to travel to Croatia and sail along the coast. An excellent choice. The Croatian coast is perfect for a vacation full of activities, where you can also relax and recharge your batteries.

    We have compiled for you a list of things that you should pay attention to, because it will make your vacation on the beautiful Croatian coast much easier.

    Choose your destination and make a reservation

    Finding the best sailing destination in Croatia is easy because there are 53 marinas along the coast. Moreover, there are many yacht charter companies that will satisfy all your needs and make your sailing vacation unforgettable.

    High season has its advantages, but it also brings more traffic in marinas and the most popular places.

    The most popular and well-known routes are usually crowded with more people and boats - if you like it quieter, you can always choose one of the less crowded but equally beautiful bays.

    If you want to avoid other people and still enjoy the warm weather and good swimming opportunities, we recommend early or late season. Do not worry about the weather, because the Croatian coast has a mild and Mediterranean climate, which is very pleasant.

    This means plenty of sunshine, warm days, slightly cooler nights, and occasional rain showers during the day. All in all, no matter what you choose, you are sure to have a great time.

    Choosing the ideal place for a vacation in Croatia should not be a big challenge, because every part of the country's coast is a little paradise.

    Charter a yacht that meets all your needs

    Choose a vessel that meets your needs and can accommodate all the people who will accompany you. Make sure you choose a yacht that is not too cramped, because you will be spending time with your guests in a smaller space than you are used to.

    As you know, there are different types of charter yachts, but it all depends on what your preferences are and how many cabins you need. Your charter company will be happy to recommend you the yacht that you think suits you best, and if you are not sure, they will find the most suitable option for you.

    You already know the answer to the question of whether you want to charter a yacht with or without a skipper. If you have experience with navigation and have all the necessary documents for Croatia, you can charter a bareboat yacht and navigate it yourself.

    If you are inexperienced in sailing, you can always charter a skippered yacht so you can sail and enjoy your vacation.

    Charter companies usually have skippers who will make sure you stick to your plans and itinerary and see as much of the beautiful Croatian coast as possible. Or they will make sure you are covered if you don't want to have a plan at all.

    Once you have decided on a yacht that suits your needs, booking is a simple process, and you can always ask for help.

    Pack according to the rules of navigation

    Do not worry, there are no strict rules, just some unwritten ones that will make your life and navigation much easier. Pack light and according to the weather, a few swimsuits and summer clothes, as well as a few warmer things for windier days or cool nights.

    Yes, the days will be sunny, and the nights will be mild, but the water can change quickly so you should also bring some warmer clothing. Pack everything in duffel bags so you can easily fold and stow them, as your chartered yacht usually has less storage space.

    In addition to bathing suits and summer clothes for the beach or an occasional walk or dinner, you should also bring comfortable shoes for walks, a pair of sandals or flip-flops. Remember that most charter companies require that you wear appropriate footwear on board the yacht. These shoes are to prevent you from slipping or leaving marks on the surface of the yacht.

    Don't forget to pack your medications, if you take any, as well as plenty of sunscreen - you don't want to look back at the pictures of your holiday and see yourself with a sunburn.

    Pack some snorkelling gear and water toys and ask your charter company if they can provide any additional equipment to help you enjoy your sailing holiday even more. And if you think you need something to make your time on board or on the beach even more enjoyable, take that along too... But it is recommended to leave your valuables and jewellery at home.

    Plan your meals and supplies

    When you are going on a long sailing trip, such as a 14-day voyage, make sure to plan all your meals. Buy food and other supplies that you can store away and prepare them later. You can also eat out whenever you want and not have to worry about daily chores like cooking and cleaning up. It's a great way to visit small towns and enjoy local cuisine to the fullest. In any case, planning your meals will take a lot of stress off you, especially if you book a restaurant in advance.

    If you are chartering a bareboat yacht, check all the items that are necessary for a smooth sailing. Make sure everything is in working order and in good condition, check the yacht for weak points and make sure all safety equipment is in order.

    Check the capacity of your water tank so it does not run out, and make sure your gas tank is full so you can get underway.

    If you charter a motor yacht, you will need to visit the nearest port to refuel. So, you already know that you will have to take care of these things yourself if you are travelling alone and there is no skipper on board, it's good if you know where all the ports and fuel stations are.

    Plan your day - or don't plan your day

    When cruising the Croatian coast on a chartered yacht, make sure you experience the best of each destination on your itinerary.

    With a bareboat, you can create your own schedule and experience as much as you want. Or not, if that's what you want. If you do not feel like doing anything other than sailing and swimming, this is also a great way to spend your vacation.

    At the end of the day, don't stick so strictly to your plan. Do not forget to have fun and enjoy yourself as much as possible.

    Planning is good, but spontaneity is key, especially on vacation.
