“What traveling by boat offers to you is to see the parts of coast and islands which you couldn’t see any other way…”

Matea – the vegan skipper

How will it look like?

Sailing by itself is probably the most in-tune-with-nature form of travel. You will surely feel it the moment the board engine goes off and you are left on the blue sea only with the sounds of wind and water, pushed forward by the force of the sails. What traveling by boat offers to you is to see the parts of coast and islands which you couldn’t see any other way, to anchor in some hardly accessible bays and dive into the crystal clear waters.
In case you are wondering how Vegan cuisine goes with all that, or in case you are wondering what Vegan cuisine in the first place even is, we are here to answer those questions and demystify some myths for you. So this week will offer you the best of the worlds of Sailing and gourmet Vegan cuisine.

Your hosts

Matea & Marina partners in life and business will take good care of you. Share with you their knowledge and experiences, teach you how to sail, become a real sailor and good food lover.
The double trouble of the Adriatic sea are true nature and animal lovers!

Route itinerary

Our planned starting base is in the Split region (Split/Trogir) and therefore the route we are taking will go to the southern Dalmatian islands. Depending on the weather and agreements with the skipper, and the whole crew our options for the week are islands Šolta, Brač, Hvar, Vis, Biševo, Korčula, possibly Lastovo. For every day we have an option of spending the night in some beautiful bay on anchor (which is free of charge) or visiting a town (mooring in official harbor or marina where we pay for the docking).

Route example

The route depends mostly on weather conditions and crew preferences. It can be changed day by day.

  • Day 1 – Check-in at the base (marina)
  • Day 2 – Starigrad, Hvar (town/bay)
  • Day 3 – Town Of Vis, Vis island
  • Day 4 – Komiža, Vis island + Biševo (bay)
  • Day 5 – Vela Luka, Korčula
  • Day 6 – Pakleni otoci, Hvar
  • Day 7 – Return to base

As for the sailing part, depending on each of the crew members wishes, your skipper Matea will guide you through a sailing tutoring up to your personal demands and willingness to learn.

How will it taste like?

Vegan cuisine

“You will get the taste of a world you haven’t imagine exists till you try it…”

Mare – the vegan chef
Delicious vegan food

Veganism today is “a movement” becoming more and more mainstream. People who are not “inside” could associate it with an extreme fight for animal rights, with a form of diet, or some “not tasty and bland” plant-based food that can never be so delicious as meat.

Our main goal and the reason we are offering sailing week in combination with Vegan cuisine is in the first place to debunk the myths that vegan food can not be as tasty as animal-products food.

With Mare, our cook on board, whose recipes you can check on her Instagram account (@by.night.mare) you will get the taste of a world you haven’t imagined exists till you try it, even if you were familiar with Vegan cuisine before. Delicious meals which could taste as if you are eating some seafood or meat-loaf, or a rich tasty vegetable stew/salad/sandwich is what you can expect in that week. Three times a day, plus snacks in-between.

“October – those times of the year still has temperatures of up to 25°C daily maximums, a lot of sun…”

Vedran, Autumn sailing lover

No better way to combine sailing, good & healthy food than in the warm weather region of Dalmatia.
Dalmatia is the name of the southern part of the Croatian coast, approximately from Zadar to the south. Throughout the whole year, it is a part of the land with the most sun, the least rain, and the mildest winters in the Croatian region. On islands such as Vis, Hvar, Korčula from June to September the air temperatures are ranging from 18°C (65°F) lows to 28°C+ (83°F) highs. Water temperatures ranging from 22°C (72°F) to 26°C (79°F). The winds are usually light to a gentle breeze. In the afternoon there is the stronger local thermic wind north-west “Maestral” perfect for sailing.
