The area of Dalmatia is a popular area for sailing with many hidden coves and beautiful coastal villages and towns with the backdrop of mountains.




"Dalmatia (; Croatian: Dalmacija [dǎlmaːtsija]; Italian: Dalmazia; see names in other languages) is one of the four historical regions of Croatia, alongside Croatia proper, Slavonia, and Istria.

Dalmatia is a narrow belt of the east shore of the Adriatic Sea, stretching from the island of Rab in the north to the Bay of Kotor in the south. The Dalmatian Hinterland ranges in width from fifty kilometres in the north, to just a few kilometres in the south; it is mostly covered by the rugged Dinaric Alps. Seventy-nine islands (and about 500 islets) run parallel to the coast, the largest (in Dalmatia) being Brač, Pag, and Hvar. The largest city is Split, followed by Zadar and Šibenik.

The name of the region stems from an Illyrian tribe called the Dalmatae, who lived in the area in classical antiquity. Later it became a Roman province, and as result a Romance culture emerged, along with the now-extinct Dalmatian language, later largely replaced with related Venetian. With the arrival of Croats to the area in the 6th century, who occupied most of the Hinterland, Croatian and Romance elements began to intermix in language and culture.

After the medieval Kingdom of Croatia entered a personal union with Hungary in 1102, its cities and lands were often conquered by, or switched allegiance to, the kingdoms of the region during the Middle Ages. At one time, most of Dalmatia came under rule of the Republic of Venice, which controlled most of Dalmatia between 1420 and 1797, with the exception of the small but stable Republic of Ragusa (1358–1808) in the south. Between 1815 and 1918, it was a province of the Austrian Empire known as the Kingdom of Dalmatia. After the Austro-Hungarian defeat in the World War I, Dalmatia was split between the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes which controlled most of it, and the Kingdom of Italy which held several smaller parts, and after World War II, the People's Republic of Croatia as a part of Yugoslavia took complete control over the area. Following the dissolution of Yugoslavia, Dalmatia became part of the Republic of Croatia." Wikipedia

Detoni Charter
2.5

We hebben van 11/9 tot 18/9 2021 een boot bij Detoni in Trogir gehuurd. De boot een Bavaria 39 cruiser uit 2007 had bij de incheck nogal wat gebreken en de nodige schade, ook de uitrusting was verre van compleet. Bij terugkomst werd met onze feedback niets gedaan en werd de boot met dezelfde gebreken weer aan de volgende verhuurder meegegeven. Ook werden we aansprakelijk gesteld voor een schade die al bij vertrek aanwezig was. Al met al een vervelende ervaring.

Rogac Harbour

We stopped to refill diesel (as suggested by Sunsail as it’s cheaper on Fridays than Marina Agna), and have been very pleasantly surprised. It’s very pretty. After refilling, we dropped anchor in a pretty Bay, and jumped on our dingy for a tasty lunch. Had a quick swim and off we headed again. Worth a stop!
