Hot chat croatia

Our skipper Chloe was one of the best parts of our trip for sure.She was a Brit, my age, and had been sailing for only a couple of years, although you’d never know that from her skills and confidence on the boat.

I was in the water basically the entire time every time, only getting out for my daily brekkie of Croatian Nutella on fresh bread a.k.a. What you can’t see here is me screaming and flailing around because I was completely surrounded by fish after my ‘friends’ threw fish food (bread) all around me.After dinner there was a vuvuzela competition, fried pastry with icing sugar for dessert, and lots of homemade liqueur, before our trusty skipper delivered us safely to our floating home 20 metres away.From super fresh seafood to homemade olive oils to delicious hazelnut gelato, Most evenings there was a recommended restaurant, so you could pre-order your meal on the boat and get your food basically as soon as you sat down. If you wanted to eat elsewhere though you are more than welcome to do so, and the The food on the boat is great too.Medsailors is definitely known for being one of the best Croatia sailing companies in terms of professionalism and expertise.We spent most of our evenings docked in bays with no other yacht companies to be seen, a rare occurrence in Croatia’s summer season.It’s not often you could throw nine people from different walks of life onto a boat for a week and not have any issues – although the other group were Kiwi girls who I have LOADS of mutual friends with, so not such a different walk of life haha. Medsailors nail this every time, because everyone who books has to fill out a short survey about what they’re looking for in their holiday, and as much as possible they plan the boats to match similar interests and travel styles.

The nine of us were all looking for a decent dose of sun and sea, some casual drinks each afternoon and one or two bigger nights out.

In between leaving my 9-5 desk job in London and diving head-first into full-time travel and funemployment (who needs financial security anyway…), I wanted to spend a week doing something EPIC to celebrate the transition.

Preferably something that involved swimming, good food and a lot of mojitos.

Croatia island hopping was an obvious choice and there’s loads of destinations and companies to choose from, but we decided on the crew are more than just skippers, cooks and travel agents (although they’re all those too…), they get fully involved in the experience.

Each boat has a skipper who doubles as a breakfast/lunch chef, then there are the crew who move around the boats and help out with sailing and docking, and then there’s Guest Experience Leaders who suss out all the logistics on each island and have loads of local knowledge.

From the get-go she was super friendly, joined us for dinners and drinks on the islands, and was the perfect leader for our week on the sea.
