Barcolana 2003 Route

It was quite a trip, sailing from Split all the way up to Trieste in the most northern part of the Adriatic Sea and back again. A map with our route can be found below.

Rovinj – Umag

On Thursday we sailed from Rovinj to Umag. There is not much wind today, so for most of the time we keep the motor running. Near Poreč a dolphin joined us for a while. But some fishing boats were more interesting for it (probably hoping for a free lunch).

Mali Lošinj – Rovinj

Wednesday 8 October we continued towards Rovinj in Istria. It was a heavy day, with winds up to 30 knots. Near the evening it got quieter, which enabled me to take a beautiful sunset picture. If anybody asks me what sailing is all about: it’s moments like this!

Luckily we found a place in ACI Marina in Rovinj, which allowed our first shower in three days. I love sailing, but I like my regular shower as well… It was still quite busy here for after-season.
