As a supporter of the individual tourism I value freedom that is given us in such a trip really acutely. I love it when I can go to the very heartland on my own and enjoy the atmosphere of primordial nature. Yachting has absolutely lived up to my passions and expectations in this regard! Honestly, when I was getting ready for the trip, I didn’t really understand the principles of yacht management. I didn’t know with which knots to tie fenders and with which – moorings, and didn’t understand why the boom could be dangerous. Sasha is an experienced and cheerful captain, he taught our team in these questions greatly. I liked it that we were not just ‘mattress tourists’, but constantly learnt something new: tried to stand at the wheel, watched the sails and worked on the sheets. We tames the element of water for a while and even felt like nature was under our control. I felt so strong for the first time, like a genuine master of my own destiny!
Sailing is a completely new and unlike anything else way of traveling! Home is where you drop anchor. Every island is unique, on any of them you can get your dose of adventure. In our trip there was everything: a trip on the bike around the island with the breeze; strolls along night streets, on white rocks worn away in a thousand years till they began sparkling; a dinner from super fresh seafood with a glass of Croatian local wine and little markets, full of thousand beautiful things that you can bring home as gifts. We stayed overnight in meninas where hundreds of yachts with people all over the world gather together. Different faces, different languages, different stories – and everybody smiles! Everybody smiles because of this inexpressible feeling of freedom the sea gives. 7 days on the yacht were very saturated: waves and calms, fishing, diving with GoPro and snorkeling, getting suntan and dancing on deck, sunsets with a glass of “Cuba Libre”. I learnt how to use marine terms and helped with the gear, admired the first rays of sun at sunrise and slept under the stars. Thank the cheerful crew and careful tactful organizer Alena for this experience that everybody must go through in their life!
I can boldly call my vacation with Jazz Yachting one of the best in my life! Like many travelers I had some misgivings about the seasickness before the trip. Of course, there were some turbulent days at sea, but with no reflection on general impressions from the trip. Quite the opposite, it even increased the perceptions – it’s real after all! Thank the team of organizers for a detailed instruction and the positive spirit with which tossing is not a problem. Being on the open sea and watching it from land are, how we say it in Odessa, two very different things. The water surrounds you everywhere. I can’t describe how much it calms and fills with some special magical energy. We met every sunset in a new city. I guess this is what happiness feels like!
To me the trip to Croatia on yacht got something more than just another “cool journey”. Everything was different, in a new fresh way here. The yacht became my new home and the crew – my family for 7 days. I never stopped wondering how I could feel secluded with the sea staying in close collaboration with 8-member crew. Listening to the sound of waves crashing on the hull of the yacht is a great start of dreaming and planning. After the trip I suddenly realized in which direction I should move forward in my life. It’s still a mystery what helped me to find answers to all my questions and put desires in order. Could it really be the sea? Regarding the organisation of our trip, everything was at the highest level: sea voyages alternated with crawls to cozy friendly coastal cities, civilized overnight stops in marinas – with wild ones in coves. Just enchanting! The yacht is beautiful comfortable and in perfect condition. We got a perfectly even suntan, swam in the purest open sea and met numerous sunrises in wild coves. A lot of photos and tons of unfeigned emotions – that’s what remains in my memory and still brings me to a state of ecstasy from time to time. I described the trip and the desire to come back there appeared again!
