Length: 6 Days

Starting and Finishing: Kremik Marina

Way Point: 43°34’11”N 15°56’23”E

Overall distance: 200 nm


Leg 1: Kremik to Vis  (Restaurant Pojoda) (red)

Distance: Around 40 nm

Way Point: Entrance to Viska Luka - 43°04’28”N 16°12’14”E

Recommendations: Moor against the Kut Wall (its quieter) and eat at the Pojoda Restaurant (5 Flags). Its wise to pop in to the Pojoda once you are moored and book a table for later in the evening (it can get quite busy). The Pojoda specialises in local seafood but also does a very fine steak Florentine for those not keen on fish, the tables are located under lemon trees from which the proprietor will pluck a lemon for your gin - if you ask.


Leg 2: Vis to Lastovo (Augusta Insula) (orange)

Distance: Around 40 nm

Way Point: Entrance to Zaklopatica - 42°46’34”N 16°52’38”E

Recommendations: Moor at one of the three ‘Mini’ Marinas, choose carefully because protocol require you eat at the restaurant of the pontoon you choose. We recommend the Augusta Insula (5 Flags) the most westerly of the three establishments. There you will be offered a short list of local specialities (you are encouraged to let the chef know your choice as soon as you moor.) We can highly recommend the local seafood dish baked in the Lastovo style under charcoal.


Leg 3: Lastovo to Korcula (green)

Distance: Around 25 nm

Way Point: east end Peljeski Kanal - 42°56’21”N 17°12’51”E

Recommendations: Three main options here, moor in the ACI Korcula marina on the east side of the town, or against the wall on the west side of town, or drop anchor about 2 nm west of town in the bay at Luka Banja where there are also some buoys available. Probably the best restaurant in the town is the Konobo Mareta (four flags), situated right in the centre of the town with its tables on several of the narrow streets that surround its kitchens.


Leg 4: Korcula to Hvar (Kanoba Hannibal) (turquoise)

Distance: Around 41 nm

Way Point: entrance to Hvar  - 43°09’48”N 16°26’19”E

Recommendations: You have two main options for mooring here. You can try for Hvar Harbour itself (its always worth a look) though this is inevitably busy and you may well end up at anchor in the rode. Alternatively head around 2.5nm further west and moor in the ACI Palmizana Marina (our recommendation for an easy life). From there you can take the taxi into Hvar to see the sites and try one of many restaurants. The third of our gastronomic stops is here, in the main square, try the Hannibal (4 Flags) - for amongst other things some of the best kalamari in the Adriatic.


OPTION 1

Leg 5 : Hvar to Milna (Brac) (purple)

Distance: Around 14 nm

Way Point: Entrance Splitska Kanal - 43°19’42”N 16°24’14”E

Recommendations: This short hop allows you to stay later at Hvar and either see more of the sites or enjoy the local beaches (remembering that many of them are nudist beaches). At Milna you have two main options for mooring, either in the Marina Vlaska or at the ACI Milna Marina. There are also opportunities within the bay for anchoring too. Be aware that the Splitska Kanal is one of the busiest waterways in Croatian waters, and an area of limited maneuverability for the big ships (mostly ferries) that pass through it.


Leg 6 : Milna to Kremik (blue)

Distance: Around 40 nm

Way Point: Entrance to Kremik - 43°34’11”N 15°56’23”E

Recommendations: This is another 40 plus nm day, you can go inside or outside of Otok Solta, a decision that really depends on the weather. On your way there are a couple of nice spots where you might stop either for lunch or for a swim. The harbour at Drvenik Veli is worth a look, there are cafes and a shop there though they are not always open. For swimming you could consider a short stop in the outer reaches of Mala Luka, also on Drvenik Veli, or in the open bay of Uvala Vela Rina on the southern side of Drvenik Mali.


OPTION 2

Leg 5 : Hvar to Mala Luka (Drvenik Veli) (purple)

Distance: Around 25 nm

Way Point: Mala Luka - 43°19’42”N 16°24’14”E

Recommendations: This slightly longer day gives you a more direct route back to Kremik, leaves you with a shorter 6th day and also brings you to one of the most stunning anchorages in the area. This is a great way to finish your holiday, work your way through the yachts in the outer bay and if possible get them between you and the sun, then anchor up right at the back and either put out a kedge or take a line ashore to prevent you from swinging. The sun sets down the bay giving the most awesome golden sea and sky as it goes down. There are no services in the bay so make sure you have picked up everything you need, and topped off your tanks in Hvar before you set out.


Leg 6 : Mala Luka to Kremik (blue)

Distance: Around 15 nm

Way Point: Entrance to Kremik - 43°34’11”N 15°56’23”E

Recommendations: This short hope makes for an easy last day and will get you into Kremik in good time. You could of course stay an extra night in Mala Luka or one of the other anchorages in the area and setting off early cover the last 15 miles in 3 hours or so to be in Kremik (for those who have it) by the 0900 return deadline at the end of your charter. On the way north-west Rogoznica makes a handy stopping point both for shopping and in some of its outlying bays for swimming and lunch.


OTHER OPTIONS FOR LEG 5 and 6

Whether you do some or all of the above Itinerary there are several other options you might wish to consider. Leg 5 out of Hvar could be run long to Split or Trogir, for a night in either of those towns. This would leave you with a 30-45nm journey for the last day but would squeeze in one more major destination along the way.
