the summer sail week route
Summer Sail Week is based in the Mediterranean's hottest destination, CROATIA! We visit world famous destinations such as Hvar and Vis combined with natural bays perfect for a bit of swimming and chilling out. Have a read below to get a bit more info on the destinations we go to and what you can expect on what promises to be one of the best weeks of your life.
When sailing its impossible to guarantee an exact day to day itinerary - that's part of the fun! This page will give you a general idea of a typical week with Summer Sail Week.
Day 1 - Trogir - Summer Sail Week's Base
The picturesque town of Trogir acts as Summer Sail Weeks summer base. The unique town sits on an island connected by bridge to the mainland. Three marinas surround the town, and your welcome pack will provide instructions on where you check in.
You'll be able to check in at 2pm, drop off your bags and use the afternoon to do a supermarket shop and explore Trogir town. Your boat should be ready to board at 4pm and, having met the SSW crew and members of the other yachts, you'll spend the first night at your base where the bars and clubs provide the perfect start to the week.
Day 2 - Stomorska
A beach bar perched at the edge of the bay provides the perfect setting for an epic party on your first night on the islands. The drinks will be flowing, the music blaring and as the sun sets on your first day you can get to know all of your fellow sailors.
We'll set off around 11am from Trogir on the first morning and enjoy a gentle sail towards Solta island. After an hour or two we'll drop anchor in a crystal clear blue water bay where you can swim, enjoy lunch and relax, before lifting up the anchor and sailing towards our first port of call.
Day 3 - Stari Grad
The oldest town in Croatia, a long, narrow, deep water bay offers ample protection for yachts and the perfect setting for your next night with Summer Sail Week. The historic old town hides numerous restaurants and bars so it's well worth exploring away from the quay.
The sail from Stormoska takes us through the 'Split Gates' and out into slightly more open water between the islands of Brac and Hvar. Bays line the coastline of both islands, offering ample opportnuities to drop anchor for a swim and lunch stop before heading to moor in the late afternoon.
Day 4 - Hvar
The party capital of Europe! Explore this fascinating historic town in the afternoon before getting dressed up for a huge night on the town. Bars surround the picturesque harbour and as the night goes on the party heads to the surrounding islands where the night clubs keep on pumping out the tunes until the sun begins to rise!
The morning after a night in Hvar never gets off to the quickest start! After a late breakfast we'll make our way over to a bay on the Pakleni Islands to call off with a swim and relax in this most stunning of settings, before setting sail towards our next destination.
Day 5 - Vis
A stunning island only recently opened to the public after many years used solely as a military base. Explore the old town, wander the old harbour or relax in one of the numerous cafes and bars. The harbour is split into two sides - Kut on the left as you enter and Vis to your right. Both are well worth a look, and the walk between the two along the waterfront is delightful.
Those feeling more adventurous can hire scooters and explore the island, visiting Komiza on the West coast and some stunning beaches right around the coast. As the island is a long way from the coast, tourists are few and far between once you get away from the harbours, so a deserted beach is well within reach!
Day 6 - Bol
Lesser known than its neighbour Hvar, Brac island is home to some stunning Croatian harbours and Bol is certainly the pick of the bunch. Arrive early for a relaxing day on the beach or perhaps an active afternoon of water sports on the beach!
In the evening the town comes alive and you can enjoy cocktails on the quay in this picturesque party town as the sun goes do. As the night progresses the music gets louder and the party doesn't end until the last one leaves!
Day 7 - Trogir
We return to Trogir on Friday afternoon around 3pm to check-out the yachts and pack. Trogir is a stunning little town so well worth a wonder on the Friday evening. We must be off all the yachts by 9am on the Saturday morning.
