SAILING DIARY- Day 8. Saturday and Check out
Advantage of being in base is that you have many showers, shops and coffee bar just behind the corner. We have used all of this advantages, and finished packing our things what we already started yesterday.
Check out needs to be before 09.00h, so we had our things out already before 08.00h and boat was empty and prepared for the check out. We did some light boat cleaning- washing dishes and also washing cockpit- to ensure easier check out.
Then we did last photo session on board of our great sailing yacht Oceanis 48.
Me, my friend, kids and dogs went out for a coffee and breakfast in marina Kaštela, while our captain was doing check out together with yacht charter staff.
Check out went smoothly, we didn't made any damage to sailing yacht or to equipment, so captain was quickly ready for going home.
After this sailing trip we have decided that we need to spend more time sailing- so for sure we will go for one full week more in the high season, and maybe some spare day or two if any boat would be available on the dates we are able to sail 2 days.
I will definitely sail again to Lastovo both Skrivena Luka and Pasadur. Also we will sail to Mljet, and maybe if sailing from Dubrovnik we will have more time to discover other side of the island.
Next time if we go to Vinogradišće we will stay on the anchor in the next bay or we will take buoy in the Hvar centre. Konoba Arsenol will be our first stop in Hvar when going next time.
Oceanis 48 is great boat for family of 4, and friend and 3 dogs. Each teenager had own cabin, back cabins are really large (front cabins are smaller but with own toilets). I like XXL cockpit of the Oceanis 48, it offers great comfort.
Marina Kaštela base is good start point for sailing to islands Hvar, Brač, Vis and also Lastovo.
Croatian islands are so beautiful, and there are numerous hidden bays, beaches, and coves, even if you live here and sail more weeks a year, there is still plenty new places to discover.
