What's the weather like?

Average Temperature in Split in the summerThe Croatian climate is typically Mediterranean, meaning warm dry summers and mild winters. With 2,600 hours of sunlight yearly it is one of the sunniest coastlines in Europe. You can expect temperatures of around 30°C during July/August with it dropping to around 20°C in May and October.

The prevailing wind in Croatia is from the north west, with an average wind speed of 7/8 knots. This grows to a comfortable Force 4-5 (10-20 knots) some afternoons making for some exhilerating sailing! Look out for the ‘Bora’ - a north easterly that can surprise you if you don’t check your forecastsregularly.

How much should I budget for mooring fees?

Croatian port authorities are some of the friendliest and most organised we know! Their harbours and marinas also host some brilliant facilities including water and shore power. You do however pay for this privilege. In Croatia you can expect to pay mooring fees at harbours, marinas and sometimes on mooring buoys. The prices vary depending on where you are and also your yacht length; they can range from £20 - £100 per night. Don't let these seemingly pricey fees put you off as there are numerous bays where you can anchor off and dinghy to shore. On a week sailing in the Dalmatian Islands, on a 42ft yacht, we recently spent £250 on mooring fees for the week.
