A week of hands-on sailing: Sail Croatia in 2024!

This once-in-a-lifetime trip will take place on:

17 – 24 August 2024    and   24 – 31 August 2024

We warmly invite you to set sail from the lively and picturesque city of Split, the perfect backdrop for our shared adventure. Prepare to embark on a hands-on sailing journey under the expert tutelage of Guy, fresh off his exhilarating voyage in the Golden Globe race.

This experience is more than just a trip; it’s a comprehensive masterclass in sailing. You’ll plunge headfirst into every facet of the seafaring life, from passage planning and provisioning, to steering this magnificent yacht through the sparkling seas. We believe in learning by doing, and there’s no better classroom than the open water.

Of course, all work and no play makes for a dull sailor! That’s why we’ve woven ample downtime into our schedule. We’ll drop anchor at a variety of stunning ports along our route, offering you the chance to explore local delights at your leisure.

The trip suits singles and couples (we have double and single cabins available) and there is no previous sailing experience required. Given Guy’s vast experience, it will also suit people who want to get some practice sailing miles or hone their existing sailing skills. We will include a night sail and the possibility to practice celestial navigation.

With our intimate crew size capped at six, get ready to learn, explore, and create unforgettable memories as we navigate the open waters. All aboard for the adventure of a lifetime!


Key Highlights

  • Hands-On Sailing: While this is a relaxing trip, the focus is very much on sailing. You will have plenty of time with our patient skipper, whether you are new to sailing or honing existing skills.
  • Relaxed Sightseeing: We will stop at several villages along the Croatian coast. You will have plenty of time to explore ashore and, with a small group, we will adapt the itinerary to your wishes.
  • No Experience Required: This is a perfect trip for those with limited sailing experience – the relaxed pace and experienced skipper, who is also an instructor, making this the perfect introduction to life at sea.



Day One (Saturday):

You will join our yacht at MCI Split Marina from 2pm. After stowing your luggage in your comfortable cabin, we will have a full safety briefing. The rest of the day will be spent getting to know your fellow crew, with dinner either on board or in the bustling city of Split, depending on the wishes of the crew.


Day Two (Sunday):

After breakfast on board, we will spend the morning ‘passage planning’ together before setting sail before lunch. We will head for the quiet bay of Necujam where we will anchor overnight. This is a beautiful bay on the island of Solta which we can explore at leisure.



Day Three (Monday:

After breakfast, we will set out for Milna. On the way, you will have plenty of opportunity to helm or discuss any aspect of sailing with Wavy.



Day Four (Tuesday):

A short sail to the wonderful town of Stari Grad. A beautiful old city with a relaxed pace of life.



Day Five (Wednesday):

Depending on the wishes of the crew, we will head to either Vis town or Komiza on the island of Vis, located almost half way to Italy



Day Six (Thursday):





Day Seven (Friday):

After breakfast we will set sail for Split.




Day Eight (Saturday):

After a relaxed breakfast, completion of log books and sharing of experiences, it’s time to say our goodbyes. If you have not already done so, take time to visit Split and the UNESCO protected site of Trogir.




Your Skipper


Straight after returning from his circumnavigation in the Golden Globe Race (GG2022), arguably the world’s toughest sailing challenge, Guy lead our Croatia trip in 2023. Guy has huge sailing experience, having skippered in the Clipper Round the World yacht race as well as crossing the Atlantic several times ‘solo’. A calm and patient leader – the opportunity to sail with Guy is an absolute ‘must’.

Below decks, our boat has 4 spacious double cabins.
