Route on the map
The sailing boat is equiped with HF/VHF radio (YAESU FT-897) with 50W on VHF and APRS tracker designed by Sandi, s53sm. The antenna is a dual-band mobile stick at the top of 17,5m high mast. The packets were mostly routed by italian APRS network on 144.800MHz.
Route tracking started on second day, when we managed to fix APRS radio reporting system. Most of this leg was sailed uder brand new spinnaker at speeds between 5 and 7 knots. We spent about 25 hours sailing from Pula to Vis, more than 80% under sails.
Primary goal was direct route from Pula to Vis, but due to very high winds (SW, W) and seas first day, the crew needed some rest, so we made a short stop on the island of Ist.
First arival, when dropping the anchor wasn't successful due to high winds (20knots + ) and high concentration of c2-h5-oh in crew-mwmbers blood, so the skipper decided to go to Vis port. After some strong argueing he accepted to make another try...
And finaly anchored in Komiža
Night at ancor at winds as high as 20+ knts, in the morning we moved to the peer, and stayed there for next day while going on motr-byke trip
Returning to north under sails
Arrival in Primošten
Next day, Primošten Ravni Žakanj
Sailing in Kornati Archipelag, along Dugi Otok to Silba
Stop in Sali for a great lunch...
Late arrival to eastern port of Silba
Last day we remained without fuel and we had to make emergency return to Mali Lošinj to visit the doctor.. At abt 17. gmt we proceeded our way to Pula.
Point where we ran out of fuel:
Crossing Kvarner using engine, with tens of fishing boats and ships, shining like Las Vegas in the night
