OUR TRAVELS with ABSIRTO
In this page, you will find two cruises and tours we did in the last few years, together with the new
cruise planned for next spring. This cruise is going to take us to Malta archipelago, and more
specifically to Gozo Island. Our itinerary includes Croatia and Dalmatia, and then we are going to
come back to Italy – Puglia, Salento, Calabria and Sicily.
CROATIA, SILBA - PREMUDA ISLANDS
This cruise took place in the first fortnight of July. We went sailing along wonderful Istria, touching Novigrad and Meduljn. Then we crossed the Quarnaro islands and reached Losinj.
The following day we carried on until we reached Silba and Premuda islands, passing near Jlovik – the wonderful island of the donkeys that has a unique village. During our return to Suzac Island, due to strong winds, we were forced to stop over in its small harbor for three days. Thanks to this stopover, we
could appreciate the fascinating atmosphere of this peculiar island, which is made of sand sediments and for this reason; it is unique in the northern part of the Adriatic Sea. Our cruise ended with our sailing towards the sharp end of Istria, with a stopover at Verudella. From there, we started our crossing to Lignano and this was our first cruise with our new boat ABSIRTO.
DALMATIAN ISLANDS – KORNATI AND SIBENIK
July and August 2015
The destination of this cruise was Sibenik. We decided to go up to Skradin and Kyrka waterfalls.
Between July and August, the weather was nice, so we were able to reach our destination and then come back home very quietly. During this cruise, we had the chance to see wonderful places.
It took us 21 days of navigation to sail along the coast of Istria, Silba, Ist, Telascika and Koronati natural parks, and we finally reached Sibenik and Skradyn. At the turning point, we stopped at Muna that is a quiet and fascinating place in Zyrie Island. After that, we sailed towards the internal part of Dugi Otok. We visited mysterious and comfortable Molat, then Olib and Verudella. We also passed near Unije Island and its crowded Maracol bay.
MALTA ARCHIPELAGO - GOZO
April and May 2016
This is going to be our next adventure. Our project consists in sailing along Croatia, through the Dalmatian Islands and reaching Dubrovnik. From here, we are going to cross the Adriatic Sea to reach Italy, and then to sail along Gargano, Puglia coast and Salento up to Santa Maria di Leuca.
Then, we are going to sail through Taranto gulf to reach Crotone and Calabria coast. After that, we are going to head our sailing boat to Sicily, by sailing along Catania coast, Siracusa and Pozzallo.
From here, we are going to prepare our crossing to Malta and Gozo Islands. Our project is to remain there for a long period to enjoy the taste of this island with the quiet rhythm of its inhabitants, their traditions and the peacefulness of its bays.
Exactly here in Gozo, we would like to meet our friends, our partners from Vela Club Montebelluna and the guests from our favourite Bed and Breakfasts, and to sail with them across Malta Islands.
