I wouldn’t call this activity unusual nor weird. If we can call it anything, it’s usual, especially in Croatia! We have a beautiful sea, it’s clear and moderately warm.
If you adore beautiful seas and battling some waves, this will be pretty pleasing for you! Also, if you never tried sailing before, then if you’re in Croatia and if you’re near the sea, just go for it! During summer we don’t have such wild waves (unless it’s a stormy day, then don’t go sailing, water skiing, surfing or anything similar. Just stay indoors).
This activity is extremely calming and nice (if you’re not afraid of being out on water for hours).
If you’re scared of going out sailing alone, or without an experienced person, fear not! You can rent a skippered boat, which is basically a sailing boat with an experienced sailing guide. You won’t have to fear anything with a person who likes to be on the boat each and every day!
Just relax, take a deep breath and take in all the beauty the sea has to offer you! Enjoy every moment of it, take photos and have the time of your life!
There are many locations for this type of activities! You can do it almost anywhere on the Adriatic coast, so find your boat and enjoy the nice and blue sea!
