I had an active morning in Milna, Croatia. At 8 o clock Joren and I went for a running session. After breakfast I went cycling around the city Milna.
On Solta, Maslinica
Maslinica (Šolta Island), the new rising star on the Adriatic coast! And it shines so bright! Pitoresque and charming place with modern highlights is a perfect place for your vacations and relaxation. Bars & beach bars, restaurants, marina, the most beautiful sunset, small island archipelago in front of the Maslinica bay, special restaurants in the vicinity bays, great accommodation offer and genuine hospitality! Make sure not to miss this gem!
Off to Maslinica Croatia
Once in Maslinica the weather is beautiful. Our 42 footer could be moored next to a huge yacht. As a large yacht can not mored using the morring lines. Firstly, which is much too short and, secondly, not strong enough. Because the moring line would come halfway through the chase, the hunt is swirling. Another way to build is Greek anchor. As a yacht sails 50 meters forward, let there be anchor pockets and sailing in the same direction again. The anchor then serves as a throttle line. Because the ship to sail back will be placed firmly anchor. The first attempt failed, the back of the huge yacht hit the dock on. Five male staff tried fenders to keep the enormous weight of the side. Unfortunately that does not work at all.
The second attempt was much better, this time the anchor had enough grip.
Once stable built, the captain left the engine running. Also, I only saw staff in the same clothes. Then the penny dropped, the owners are probably not yet on board.
By now I had picked a beautiful spot with a good view of the wharf.
Lost in imagination
Who will be the owner of the ship and what work he or she does? How old are they or are they famous? I always love to fantasize about. After an hour wait they finally arrived. Two men and an older couple. A big disappointment was. Achja in my imagination it was at least nice.
One of the men, I think the owner gave his bag to a female sailor and they disappeared behind the black glass.
Dont’t leave, because tomorrow we are going to sail to an amazing place: Otok Vela Smokvica! I am more than excited!
