The official yachting season in Croatia starts, as usual, the weekend after Easter.
Marinas and Ports are now filled with busy charter renters that are trying to prepare everything for the first guests arriving tomorrow.
Boats are still being prepared hurriedly, some of them are still out on the cranes, getting their last fixing and paint on the bottom for the 2019 season.
Sails are getting dry, decks are being brushed, some people are hanging high on the masts…you can say, yes the sailing season is about to start.
Light SE wind announces that the weather next few days will probably not be as sunny as most would love to but for sure there will be few sunny days to brighten up the first sailors.
Nautical tourism in Croatia is still one of the most growing forms of tourism. Croatian Ministry of tourism predicts growth again for the 2019 season in the amount of 3%-5%.
At the moment there are 50 marinas and more than 3300 charter boats available on the coast. You can say that Croatia is currently the biggest charter market in the world!
Still, trends say that 2019 will be a big Greek and Turkey nautical season comeback. It will be interesting to observe what will happen and which destinations will be the next big nautic stars.
Did you already find your dream boat for the 2019 sailing season?
We wish you fair winds
