30 July

1545hrs: Departed Sibenik with Mark and Chloe. Managed to get away from the berth in strong winds on the SB beam, with 50% bowthruster, with no issues.


1800hrs: Hanging off mooring at Uvala Tratinska, Otok Zirje. Good sail in 20knt NW winds, initially close hauled from the entrance to Sibenik, then a broad reach before motors on as we beared NW up the west coast of Otok Zirje.

1130hrs: Depart Uvala Tratinska, Otok Zirje. First thing in the morning I dived the boat and, with Mark's assistance, replaced the damaged SB bowthruster prop. Mark and Chloe took the dinghy to a small bay nearby for a swim whilst I attended to work emails.


1715hrs: Anchored at Uvala Marinica, Otok Rava. Motor all the way dead into the wind. Had a long swim, then later in the evening we motored around to Konoba Rava for dinner.
