Once again we propose to take the ‘David Bowie’ Bavaria Cruiser 41S fleet from Pirovac on the Croatian coast, supplemented by a few Elan Impression 45.1s

With 4 or 5 persons per boat we already are confident of filling at least 8 boats. BOOK NOW to secure your place, contact John Plumb ( for queries also Frank Honan (

We have booked 8 boats initially with an option on more. 14 boats is the maximum if we can get enough skippers.

Final payments are due by 31st August when the entry list will be closed. Once we have all the payments in we can declare the boat assignments.

First come first served, act now or risk being on the waiting list.

We are very happy to be organising the VISC annual end of season regatta in Croatia again this year together with Sail Charter International. This “Sailing with Friends” event is the highlight of the VISC sailing calendar and each year brings new and experienced club members together for a week of fun and enjoyment.

Your organisers for this event are John Plumb, Frank Honan, Melanie Smith and Davide Parise.

We are planning on having the usual mix of flotilla cruising and training days this year, allowing time for some relaxing cruising to discover the beautiful islands and bays of the Croatian coast and islands.
