1st Offshore Sailing

Poreč – Dubrovnik – Zadar… 500 miles…

The time has come to put HIR3 and ourselves to the first real test. We have finally sailed offshore 300 miles non-stop from Poreč to Dubrovnik and then another 200 miles to Zadar.

20170314_171446I have been working on the HIR for a week on dry berth and then another week in the marina before she was ready to set sail.17862856_10154555644490897_228176098241521304_nMy crew came to Poreč, we went shopping and had a few drinks before going to sleep. We sailed out around 7am with a light breeze and rain, but eventually the rain stopped, the breeze freshened and during the night we had strong bora (about 30 knots). We sailed with double reefed main and jib without any major problems except that it was really cold… We had moderate wind the next day and ideal night sailing afterwards. It took us 58 hours sailing to get to a new marina in Slano. We celebrated with a special Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum;)image2We broke the table in the salon and a few wooden pieces in the interior, but other than that, the boat behaved great and we enjoyed the ride.image44Good boat, good crew, good times:)…

1. We kindly ask for a small donation for the project and sailing expenses are shared by the crew,

2. HIR 3 is a great boat, but she is an old lady that has her own will and sometimes we will need to accommodate her so she is happy as we are:)
