1045hrs:             Matt went for a long swim, Arnold had a dip. Checked engine oil. All good. Depart Kaprije for Sibenek.



1440hrs:             Berthed stern to finger C at ACI marina, Uvla Rocovaca, adjacent Skradin. Good sail from Kaprije to entrance of Kanal Sv. Ante. Then motored through the very scenic passage past Sibenik, under two bridges, the first of which I was convinced we would not clear!


Arnold and I walked around the very pretty village of Skardin, had a beer with Matt who went off to explore on his own. Arnold and I went to Toni's family restaurant (70 years heritage). Best beef I have had in the Balkans, cooked under the bell. Later Arnold and I had a night cap, during which we solved the world’s problems.




Nearly 10 nautical miles up the inland passage to Skradin




Good sail from Kaprije to the entrance to Kanal Sv. Ante




Motoring up the passage to the first bridge with a clearance of less than 4 metres above mast.

The perspective from below look liked we definitely foul the bridge – a nervous moment!

Beautiful setting at the Skradin marina, well up river




Superb beef at Toni’s 70 year old family Kanoba cooked in the traditional way under the bell
