Bay of Kotor - hidden jewel of the southern Adriatic
Sailing south take us to the embrace of Montenegro. You will collect more than 460 NM in your logbook. You will witness spectacular views of the Croatian coast as well as an opportunity to sharpen your sailing skills.
Montenegro is one of the most beautiful and most diverse countries in the Balkan peninsula, especially considering its size. This country with such an exotic name is also the first official ecological state in the world!
The route will take us to the Bay of Kotor, a truly unique natural phenomenon. Thanks to its exceptional and universal worth, it has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. The town of Kotor is one of the oldest on the Adriatic coast and the Church of St. Tryphon in Kotor is the oldest in Europe. In recent years, the Bay of Kotor has become a very popular destination for sailors. Are you a sailor?

Sailing to Montenegro
Sailing to Montenegro program will provide an unforgettable sailing experience. You will collect approximately 470 NM in your logbook! You will have an opportunity to practice your sailing skills while enjoying fascinating surroundings. You will start friendships with other sailors. You will be taken care of by our most experienced skippers.
Maybe you are already experienced in equipping a boat for multi-day sailing, but for some of you it will be the first encounter with this important task. We will take advantage of the favorable wind towards the south and the island of Hvar. Although Hvar is a well-known tourist destination, approaching the island on a sailboat is a unique experience. After a short break here, we are heading towards Korcula and Mljet. Depending on the weather conditions, we will find a convenient location for berth and overnight. The next obligatory station is Cavtat where we will leave Croatian territorial waters, both physically and administratively. We will arrive to Montenegro and our final destination, Boka Kotorska.
Boka Kotorska, Montenegro
Boka Kotorska is the largest bay of the Adriatic Sea (87 km²). It fell deeply beneath the cliffs of Lovcen and Orden as if it had separated them by the power of water, and the landscape was truly incredible. Boka Kotorska was celebrated by brave sailors, skilled craftsmen, builders, many prominent minds. It has a glorious history – from Greek colonies, across Illyrians, Rome, Byzantium, Turks, Venetians, Russians, Napoleons, and Austria. Maritimeism was the foundation of life and gave the seal of great cultural heritage. Our crew will look at the glory for a moment.
