Log 1st July
We left Sesula Bay (Brac) early on Tuesday 28th June and sailed for 8 hours - 80km to find Puscica Bay (Brac) was already prebooked by a flotilla of 30 boats. We sailed on and pulled into a gorgeous inlet for the night with only two restaurants and about 15 moorings, heaven. Vrbosca (Hvar) was our next stop (29th) after 80km and lots of caluses. I can call myself a sailor now. We walked about 4 km to the next town Jelsa, for a look around and swam in a tiny bay on the way back. The water here is very deep but absolutely crystal clear. Next day (30th) after seeing a cute little town called Bol (Brac) we went past Dugi Rat and on to Vinogradisce Bay (Pakleni Islands) where we anchored and caught a boat taxi to Hvar (Hvar Island). We sat at a bar next to two New Zealanders who where working on one of the enormous boats (one was the chef). What a life! Tonight (1st) we find ourselves in Korcula and after an early meal (8 o'clock) are ready to catch a bus/ferry to Dubrovnik tomorrow.
We are following the Europeans and have suntans most places now! Nearly everyone swims nude off the yachts so there are middle age German t*** and bums everywhere.
There are thousands of yachts everywhere. We are certainly not pioneers. Our yacht is 42ft long and has 3 double beds. It's called the Blue Queen and it's perfect.
Paul has had a bad cold since the day we flew out. He had a hard few months and got sick as soon as the adrenaline stopped. Poor boy, but not a bad place to convalesce.
