Born in Rijeka, a port city, in 1972, I have always been attached to the sea and ships.

Of course, as soon as you set off and the wind starts to stream across the deck, your face, your hair … the feeling of heat is reduced by half! But hold on ..0 comments
Krk Island! No matter how many times I have sailed around that island, it still surprises me with something! Yachtsmen are familiar with the more popular southern side of the island, where they most often start from the marina, Punat through the Kvarnerić channel to Rab or Lošinj. It’s unbelievable how many people plan ahead with an ambitious intention to go and see as much as possible in seven days and rush past the islet, Košiljun - an island upon which a Fransiscan monastery is situate..0 comments
