"You know what they say: No rest for the weary! That’s right crew, I’m spending my Easter weekend in Trogir, the beautiful town just west of Split. The weather isn’t spectacular, but the Old Town—located on a small island between mainland Croatia and the island of Ciovo, with a bridge on either side—the area forms a kind of natural harbor and the town is a fantastic mixture of Renaissance and Baroque.
From what I understand, this place gets very busy during the summer months (Trogir is included in the UNESCO Monument Heritage Register), so I figured this was a good time to visit and get a feel for this unique place. The Marina of Trogir is technically on the island of Ciovo, which is literally a five-minute walk from the Old Town. Here, I met a Sailogy’s new partner, Toni, an experienced sailor who runs a small charter company based here.
I was allowed onto a few of his boats and found them to be absolutely clean and in order, so if you’d like to depart for a sailing holiday from Trogir, Toni comes with a sincere Sail Hunter recommendation! I happen to think that the harbor’s proximity to the town of Trogir makes it a real plus: there are plenty of markets and shops nearby if you need to pick something up before your journey begins. The marina also offers free car parking, and there’s a nautical equipment shop right in the harbor. The one thing I’m not crazy about is the giant shipyard right behind the harbor, which doesn’t offer the nicest view, but Toni told me that it’s going to be closed next year and will be converted into a tourist center.
Ok folks, the Sail Hunter is hungry: I think it’s time to sit down for an Easter lunch. See you soon!"
