Croatian competition: The view from Korcula
As we sail through Christmas, many of you will have unwrapped everything under the tree, but we have one more exciting gift that could be yours.
We love a carol in the office and today we’ve launched anew competition* based on The Twelve Days of Christmas carol but with a sailing theme. The prize? Two free flights to one of our favourite destinations, Croatia, in June – the perfect start to a yacht charter. To be in with a chance to win, all you have to do is sign up to our competition page by 5 January. What a handy bounty for anyone wanting to make the most of this beautiful part of the world.
The first day of Christmas
For each of the 12 days, we’re going to share some insider information about Croatia as we countdown our competition. Our true love has given us a seagull in a crow’s nest rather than a partridge in a pear tree, so we have climbed the rigging so we can tell you about some of the breathtaking views Croatia offers.
A seagull in a crow’s nest
One hidden gem is the Croatian island of Korcula, the miniature Dubrovnik off the Pelješac peninsula. At the top of the bell tower in the island’s Cathedral Sveti Marko, you can grab a great view of the town and its surroundings. From there you can see the coast, with beautiful coves, and watch the yachts approach from the distance. Did you know that Korcula is also the birthplace of Marco Polo? He is the town’s most famous son and it is impossible to escape his mark on the town when you visit!
A quick tour of Croatia
If you’ve not travelled to Croatia before, here’s our handy pocket introduction. Croatia’s Adriatic coastline is rightly famous for its sailing and shore-based sites of beauty, from the national parks of the Kornati Islands and the cosmopolitan city of Split to the Medieval walled city of Dubrovnik.
Fortified castles and Byzantine palaces reflect Croatia’s great trading history and the towns come alive at night with harbourside restaurants and street cafes emphasising Croatia’s strong cosmopolitan nature and a sophisticated cafe society. Along the coastline of Croatia there are thousands of offshore islands, safe anchorages and harbours offering plenty of variety for novice and experienced sailors alike.
