3 Boats Full of Venetians

Luckily it was only a short 17nm hop from Zadar to Molat as when we woke up the sky was black with rain clouds. So we waited in Zadar until they had passed and set off in pristine conditions – pristine if you are a motor boat as there was absolutely no wind.

We anchored in 3m of water and had a quick swim to check the anchor and our surroundings. Then we headed in for a walk around the island. We ended up walking across to the other side where we found a cute little marina and some restaurants and bars. Obviously we stopped for a drink before heading back to the boat.

The water was like glass and out came the wine and the camera in no particular order. Some more yachts came into the bay – we have about 10 here now – obviously not as much a secret as I first thought.

Three boats came in at once and we asked across the water where they were from. “Venice” was the answer and after dinner we headed off in the dingy to introduce ourselves and pick their brains about Venice. Good move. We also enjoyed their Italian food, wine and company and had a really nice time. Even got a free T Shirt for their cruising club. The emblem has the compass points pointing to different Italian wines. My sort of cruising club.

Great night in a great bay 🙂
