Cancellation
Worth putting this in so it's clear. If you cancel and we can't find a replacement for your place there's no way that we can refund. This is a shared cost holiday and as such it would be unfair to everyone who's committed to coming.
I strongly suggest you do some googling for sailing holiday insurance that includes cancellation due to illness as on average there are always 1-2 who can't make it because of illness or other insurable cancellations.

General Plan
We're heading out to Croatia on the 22nd May for a week of sailing from Split. The skippers are taking the (very) early morning flight out arriving at 9am so that we can do boat handover/inspection, food shopping. We'll also do any rejigging to the itinerary that's needed based on the what the weather is doing.

Almost everyone else is getting in around 20h00, although some are going travelling for a few days before and meeting us in Split. Some are also staying over the bank holiday and booking into local hotels for some extra beach and exploration time.

We haven't got a fixed itinerary of where we're going but I have done alot of advanced planning, venue checking with friends and family who both live and sail regularly in the area so that we get the very best bits.

I've put together a google map of the main points where we hope to stop off including some photos/videos http://bit.ly/lsc-cro...

Boats
In terms of boats we've got 36-38ft Bravarias and similar booked with six people per boat which should leave plenty of room to move around. We're sticking at four boats rather than trying to push it to five.

Day to day
Each day we'll have a skippers briefing covering off where we're going and anything of note. We'll organise some races and other fun stuff while we're out there but will also have days where each boat can go off and do there own thing and rendez-vous at the destinations for food, bbqs, and so on. This way we get plenty of time together and apart.

Pre-Holiday dinners
We'll be doing at least one dinner a month before the holiday so that you can come down and meet people who are coming and of course it's a great excuse to go out for dinner!

I hope this covers off the main points. I'm free on my mobile: 0791 760 2110 or on the number below if you want to catch up by phone.
