0830hrs: Departed Marina Vento Di Venezia


1715hrs: After clearing customs on re-entering Croatia, tied up to a mooring at Rovinj. Motor sail in light winds. Dinner ashore. Mad scramble to reorganise Mark and Chloe's travel arrangements. Their original departure flight was from Dubrovnik to Zagreb. As we were close to Zagreb they attempted to give up the Dub Zar leg and get a bus from Pula to Zagreb on Aug 10. Expedia, the booking agency, stated this was not allowed. So after much ado and stress, a hire car was booked for Mark and Chloe to drive from Pula to Dubrovnik tomorrow morning, some 8hrs! I contacted Lari Braicevic, who kindly organised an apartment for Mark and Chloe in Cavtat.

0700hrs: Depart Rovinj for Pula.


0915hrs: Berthed stern to at ACI marina, Pula. Chloe and Mark caught taxi to Pula airport to pick up hire car. Apparently got underway on drive to Dubrovnik at 10am. Great to have them on board. Chloe caught on very quickly and is a great boat hand. Mark as always was great company. John Eustace arrived mid-afternoon, after which we organised to depart.
