Our inaugural Croatia CycleSail Tour turned out to be everything we expected it to be and more. It was a very special trip with sunny harbour-side starts every morning
An exceptionally high standard of dining every evening
Pudding every day is a must …
Roads like carpets to ride on
Fun on the ferry ⛴ (we take 2 short ferries on the trip)
There is plenty of time to stop and hang around (literally)
… actually it’s hard not to stop & take pics
Lunchtimes weren’t all spent together in the same restaurant but many were
There were umpteen pics of sunrises and sunsets over and on ‘Linda’ our stunning wooden yacht
The Dingac tunnel descent is one of the most beautiful 9ks you’ll ever cycle (or rather free-wheel) in your life
Don’t squash them as you ride along!
Skipper hosing down all of the bikes
Korcula is a delightful tiny town
Rob is 80 and there wasn’t one climb on tour he didn’t tackle successfully
Ken spending a day on the boat waving us goodbye 👋
Some of the island harbour descents are quite challenging
But not as challenging as the descent on foot to this lovely secluded cove featured in the Mama Mia 2 film
After evening drinks 🍺🥤🍹 it’s sometimes a little tricky to locate Linda 🤣 let alone clamber aboard!!!
But there’s always a helping hand 🖐
The crew wait patiently to raise the gangplank at bedtime
Ice cream stops are compulsory
… as is lying on your back doing absolutely nothing when crossing between the islands sometimes
Shoes off on board please 🙏
Two highly competent tour leaders!
Our unstoppable Octogenarian!
Mooring up is always a joy to watch
Jelsa’s donkey on Hvar Island
Captain and crew made us feel welcome and comfortable at all times
The views are just spectacular
Always time for a second (third and fourth) coffee ☕️
Bartender Helena also made a wonderful waitress and in addition was to be seen throwing the odd rope and brandishing the odd buoy at docking time
Lucy, the chef’s creativity was everywhere; not just in her fabulous food
The German-made high quality hired bikes arrived with an equal standard of service by Toni and met the exact specs given
No problems drying the washing 👍
Don’t let the daily shorter distances (45 to 85k) fool you into thinking this is easy!
The climbs are pretty tough
You don’t get views like these without working for them
A lovely time was had in the Croatia CycleSail ‘Year of ‘22’
