Osor marina and anchorage

The town of Osor lies on Cres with a opening bridge connecting islands Cres and Lošinj. The channel between the islands called Kavuada was dug in the roman times. The depth in the channel is 2,5 m but can go as low as 2,2 m so we reccomend you watch the tide. The bridge opens for marine traffic every day at 9AM and 5PM for 30 minutes but smaller boats can pass under all the time.

There are two bays N of the bridge that are fairly OK to anchor but both are fairly deep. Anchoring on 8 to 20 m depth. One bay is on the Lošinj side called Uvala Skaline and the other is Uvala Bijar on Cres side. Skaline is more protected from winds from the S and SW and Bijar more from winds from NE and SE.

South of the bridge there is a smal marina with a pontoon with about 50 berths. The depth ranges from 0,5 m up to 4 m. There are also 12 buoys along the Cres side.
The chanal is marked and very narrow (only 12 m) with depth of around 3 - 4 m. Bora (NE wind, gusty and choppy wave) can be very strong and it can be dangerous passing through the bridge canal in case of strong Bora.

There are shallows E and W of the marked chanal so we reccomend keeping inside it all the time unless you have very shallow draft.

Zapuntel Harbour

Zapuntel is a fantastic little harbour located in a passage between islands Ist and Molat. The harbour is situated on NW most end of Molat Island facing the island Ist and a nother anchorage in Mljake Bay right accross the passage.

Zapuntel is very well protected from winds from all directions, allthough a strong Bora wind from NE does tend to produce a nasty swell in the bay.

The harbour has a L-shapped pier that has a few moorings on the N side and there are a few slips to more up in the inner part of the L pier. Depth there is 2,5 m so you can go in with a decent sized sailing yacht but it fills up quickly. If you have a boat with more than 2,4 m draft we recommend going for a buoy.

The W (outer) side of the pier is reserved for the local line - usually a fast passenger catamaran (not a ferry) that connects Molat Island from Zapuntel and Brgulje with Zadar on mainland and neighbouring island Ist. You can check the schedule on Jadrolinija's official webpage (www.jadrolinija.hr) but do be careful to choose the right time of the year because schedules change with the seasons. You can’t stay there long if you tie up alongside, because the harbour master is going to chase you away when the catamaran is about to come.

Apart from the moorings on the pier there are 20 buoys set up and they will cost you 14 Croatian Kuna per meter. You can call +386 98 272 264 to check for free buoys. As everywhere you can also anchor if all the buoys are taken but you can expect to be charged something anyway.

You will find a small shop for basic supplies in a container behind the ticket office right there in the harbour.

There are two restaurants, one of them directly on the water called Škrila located on the NE side of Zapuntel Harbour.

The village Zapuntel is situated a bit further along the road going South towards villages Brgulje and Molat town.

Coming into Zapuntel by sea from the West there is a relatively narrow passage between islands Ist and Molat. Minimum depth in the passage is 5 m and it is lit by a red lateral beacon flashing white in 15 second period. There can be very strong current in the passage (up to 3 knots) but the direction of the current varies.

Sailing into Zapuntel from the East or NE the depth is much bigger and the passage itself is much wider. This entrance is lit by a white lighthouse with a period of 2 seconds located on the Cape Vranač (Rt Vranač) on Molat side of the passage.

Krivica Anchorage

Krivica anchorage is a secluded bay on SW side of Mali Lošinj island, Croatia. It is known by boaters and sailors for its curved shape, which is why the anchorage is protected from all winds. The only part of the anchorage that is not well protected is the entrance to the bay. It is wider and open towards West.

The anchorage is very peaceful and quiet off season, but during summer time it is full of sailing boats and motor yachts. In 2011 there were buoys placed there and it costs 16 Croatian kuna per meter of boat length to stay for the night.

There are only 10 spaces with buoys but there is space enough for at least 60 more yachts to anchor and go stern to and put warps around by trees close by. You will be charged for the berth anyway because the whole anchorage is under service concession, as most of Croatia’s safe anchorages are these days. The seabed is sand and the anchor holds very well.

If you feel like a short hike, it’s worth climbing up the hill to St. Ivan chapel. It’s about 25 minute walk and the path is quite nice, though we recommend having good shoes or at least don’t go climbing it wearing your flip-flops.

After you get back down and don’t feel like cooking your own dinner, there is a lovely restaurant called after the next bay and anchorage, Balvanida and it is on a path half way between the two anchorages.

There is a floating grocery store - a rib coming into Krivica bay twice a day. You can always get fresh bread, pastries, fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, milk, cheese, but you can also ask them to bring you anything you whish from Mali Lošinj or Ilovik island on their next trip.

If you charter your boat from Marina Kaštela, which is one of the most popular and busiest starting points for sailing the Adriatic, a good spot to spend your first or last night aboard is Bobovišće anchorage.

Bobovišće is a deep bay with two smaller bays at the end. Both are quite narrow so during season there can be a bit crowdy. It is well protected from bora and jugo (NE and SE winds) and not so much from Maestral – wind from NW which is a sign of stable weather.

It is only 13 miles from Bobovišće to Marina Kaštela so in you can be docked in the marina in little less than two hours sailing.

During high season, Lučice anchorage on Brač Island about a mile east of Split gate (Splitska vrata), is very crowded. We stopped there in April and we were alone there.

Lučice is well protected from all winds, except for from south mabye.

There is 20 buoys there mainly for the guests of restaurant Smrčeva. They are the oncessionaire at Lučice as well.

The prices vary from 80kn to 240 kn (for boats larger then 12m.

Lučice and the owners of the restaurant are well known for their care for the environment and clean anchorage.

Milna is a very nice port on Brač Island with two marinas. One is ACI marina Milna, situated right in the port, and the other is Marina Vlaška. It is about 10 minute walk from Vlaška to the port.

We tried to fill up our gas tank in Milna on Brač Island and it was open only ‘till 1PM. Last year these opening hours lasted until May 15th. After that, the station was open until 7PM.

For those withput their own ride – there is a catamaran Karolina, that connects Milna and Split every day (almost). Check the timetable here: www.jadrolinija.hr

Brač Island also has interesting leftovers from ex Yugoslavian army. There are underground docks for submarines and battleships.

The docks are usually nicely masked with rocks with artificial rocks. You can dock there with larger sailboats and even go into the underground dock on foot or with your dinghy. The depth in the dock is usually about 5-6 meters. And it is about 8 meters wide.

The sailboat on the photo is Bavaria 36.

There is still a mass of tourists at Zlatni Rat at the end of September enjoying the magnificent beach and sun.

We enjoyed even more anchoring on the east part of the cape. Mild east wind turned our stern towards the beach and we jumped into turquoise sea.

We swam to the beach and had a beer which was, given the location not as expensive as one would expect. 20 kn for a cold pint.

When we sailed along southern coast of Brač Island Jugo (SE wind) was blowing at 30 knots and it was too much to enjoy Zlatni Rat so we sailed to ACI marina Vrbovska.

It was amazing how Jugo faded in the marina and even in season you are likely to get a berth, because Vrbovska is well off standard routes tourists take during their sailing trips across southern Damlatia.

If you take a look at the last photo…this is how it was the following morning. Sea as if it were oil.

Just west of Skrivena luka, there is a narrow bay we anchored at once.

We bought a nice fresh fish off a fisherman in Ubli where we poured some diesel into our tank (luckily the fishing boat was docked there otherwise we wouldn’t be able to fill up our tank because it is very shallow by the gas station – around 1.5 m) and we made a nice dinner in Uska.

Uska is a nice bay very safe if the forecast is bora (NE wind) and pretty ok in stable weather as well. I wouldn’t spend the night if winds from SW are blowing because Uska is open towards SW and the swells are pretty big.
