21 Winds on the Adriatic
Sailing in Croatia • Primošten - Drvenik Veli
I sail out and pass near islet Lupac and then SW of island Zlarin. The SW side of the island is steep and difficult to access while the NE side is full of nice coves. Fearing to stay without an already weak wind I choose to sail along the SW side of the island. After Zlarin I sail in direction of Tmara and then on a very light breeze towards the city of Primošten. In Primošten I find a place to dock among small fishing-boats in a tiny bay west of the city.
Željka arrives in Primošten in the morning and we immediately sail out in direction of Rogoznica. Moderate bora is blowing. Between island Maslinovik ("Olive Island") and Cape Kremik the sea currents collide with the wind and so the sea is pretty wavy. Close to Rogoznica we dock in another expensive marina. The marina is unfortunately located at a certain distance from the city so we need to walk quite a bit to reach the center of Rogoznica.
The part of Croatia south of Rogoznica is one of the ugliest on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. Numerous fjord-looking bays are devastated with enormous new built houses. We sail carefuly around Cape Ploča ("Cape Plate"), the traditional dividing point between the North Adriatic and the South Adriatic. Close to Cape Ploča there is a dangerous low rock. Although the winds can be very strong in this region, we sail with a pleasant wind. Between Arkanđel ("Archangel") and the mainland the wind suddenly stops blowing, to grow stronger again near Murvica. We sail near island Mali Drvenik and islet Malta right in the deep bay on Veli Drvenik. In Veli Drvenik there is a pier of an unfinished marina. We dock there. The village doesn't offer any attractions, there is no decent cafe either (the locals drink bier on the stairs in front of the shop).
For the Labour Day we sail for fun on the route Vinišće - Mala Drvenik - Veli Drvenik.
