An early morning flight from Stansted Airport bought us to Dubrovnik. Visually enchanting it’s beauty is spoilt by wall to wall tourists. The city is on the cruise ship route, need I say more?
While Peter struggled with the last few aspects for the barge specs with Pipers I walked the wall in the heat. In the afternoon we sat in a small bar perched on the side of a cliff , watching the locals leaping into the water from a great height, drinking Aperols.
After a relaxing afternoon we had a drinks party on the terrace of our hotel to meet our fellow sailors. The group on our yacht is 3 ladies, Peter and me. Peter will be quite at home sailing with an all girl crew!!
On Saturday we finally boarded our yacht, a fifty foot Jeaneau and packed away our provisions for the next two weeks. A short trip up the coast the next day bought us to a small island, where we anchored in the bay, for lunch and a swim. This afternoon we are racing to our next destination. Only 3 yatchs in the race so the worst we will do is third!!!
