The goal of our offshore sailing is the city of Otranto. Otranto is situated on the east coast of the peninsula of Salento, in the Strait of Otranto which links the Adriatic Sea and Ionian Sea. Passage of Otranto, the strait between Italy and Albania, the natural entrance to the Adriatic Sea – is named after the city of Otranto in southern Italy.
There is 250 NM of sailing waiting for us on our route from Jezera to Otranto. On the Island of Lastovo we have to do the formalities of departure from Croatia and down south we will set our sails.
