“Hrvatski Voda Flotile”

(That’s what the shirts from our Croatia Flotilla will read!)

As ASA staff members return from attending the recent San Juan Islands and Gulf Islands flotillas, photos collect on Flickr and stories float around the office. I booked my tickets for the Croatia flotilla yesterday, and with the flotilla atmosphere all around me, I am eagerly counting the days till we take off on September 2nd.

There are only two berths left on the Croatia boats–one double and one single. What’s great about this arrangement is that you don’t have to worry about skippering your own boat; you can just join the fun on someone else’s! Plus, these short-handed crew are going to need someone to hang on to the Slivovitz while underway… There are twenty people on five boats right now–big enough for a party, small enough to get to know one another over the course of the week.

I’ve received a couple of emails from ASA members just gushing about the place. Listen to this:

“I am presently vacationing in Croatia. It is one of the best kept secrets in the world. It is a sailors paradise. I have traveled worldwide, but must admit that the Adriatic is one of the best, be it sailing, relaxing, swimming, sun bathing, etc. It is the next to the Riviera. ASA made a wise choice this year and I suggest scheduling future Croatia Flotillas!”

This was an unsolicited comment–and I have no doubt that Croatia will be paradise. July 15th is the cutoff for registration, so hop on those berths and grab the Slivovitz!
