Bookings Open 27 Oct. 6pm GMT

Welcome to Croatia

The South Route is where The Yacht Week began and is our original sailing route. It runs from marinas near Split and takes you on an epic journey visiting four islands in seven days.

The Yacht Week - Croatia Map

Along the way you will stop in Hvar, which is renowned for its parties and where we host our infamous after beach party. With room for up to 50 yachts the regatta is a definite highlight giving everyone a chance to show off their newly acquired sailing skills before heading off to the last night party.

…you will find the beach club where we arrange an open air party right by the water. The DJ stops when the last person leaves the dance floor…

Double Routes


To make our events the best that they possibly can be and for sailing and mooring to be smoother, we have two versions of the South Route - the Black and the Red Route. Each route has a capacity of up to 50 yachts and both will visit the same destinations, just on different days.

Black Route

Ultra Europe

The ultimate route for the sun-seeking festival goer: The Yacht Week and Ultra Europe combine to bring you a week of Europe's premier EDM festival, sailing, Croatian culture and all that is great about The Yacht Week. To read more about this route, visit the Ultra Route page.

Your Marina

The marinas are a short drive from Split Airport. Check your yacht information in order to find out which marina you should go to. Your yacht will be available for you and your crew at around 4pm on the departure day. We recommend that you arrive at the marina by 2pm at the

latest in order to have time for shopping and sort out the paperwork, leave a safety deposit and check in to your yacht. All the boats will be spread over a few piers in each marina and you will have a chance to meet your fellow sailors before heading out to sail on the first day!

Vis - Vis Island

The town of Vis has a long promenade with a number of good restaurants offering fresh fish and lobster. Be sure to go out for dinner here. We recommend restaurant Kaliopa where all the tables are spread out in a romantic and beautiful garden filled with palm trees and flowers.

The evening festivities kick off at Fort George, an old fort built in 1813 by the British Royal Navy. Here you can enjoy the fresh ocean breeze while ordering a drink at the bar and overlooking the great bay of Vis and the boats at anchor.

The island today looks like paradise, but was only opened to foreigners in 1994 as it was the military headquarters for Marshal Tito. As a result, Vis is basically untouched since the 1970′s and has retained almost all of its varied historical architecture. The island offers a great deal of interesting sites including submarine docks, gun towers like “Navarone” and tunnels kilometers long through the hills.

Komiza - Vis Island

Untouched and charming Komiza is a small fishing village located on the western bay of Vis island. It’s picturesque houses and beautiful front are filled with restaurants. Make sure you walk around and explore the little village with small boutiques and great ice cream. Most of the yachts will stay at anchor here and take a taxi boat to the pier in the evening. Around the corner from the village you will find the beach club where we arrange an open air party right by the water. The DJ stops when the last person leaves the dance floor…

Natural Bay

There are a number of natural bays to choose from, depending on the weather and wind directions. Here we raft all the yachts together in traditional Yacht Week style so that you can swim and enjoy the nature of Croatia. This evening is very spontaneous and often ends in late night parties on the yachts.

Lounging on inflatables next to yachts in Scedro

A bay well protected from all wind directions except for from the direct north. Located away from the normal sailing route this bay is very popular if you want some privacy and enjoy the nature of Croatia.

Palmizana Bay
Guests sailing in Palmizana, Croatia

Well protected from any winds but south. It is possible to access taxi boats to Hvar and plenty of nice seafood restaurants.

Rogac, Solta
Yachts lined up for the boat party in Solta

Rogac is the main port of the island of Solta which is connected to Split via fast boat and ferry. Protected form all winds other than the north. Great mid-week bay when it is quiet.

Hvar - Hvar Island

The St. Tropez of Croatia! You have probably already heard of Hvar as it’s the most famous place along the Croatian coast. The marble front is filled with boutiques, bars, restaurants and cafes. Make sure you get here early as we arrange a well known after beach party that you will love. All yachts are moored in Palmizana Marina right outside Hvar on a small island or in the town. As this is a very popular place it’s recommended to arrive early to get a mooring spot.

Friday Regatta & Regatta Party

On Fridays we arrange a regatta for all the yachts. By now you should be good enough to help your skipper like a top race crew. The regatta winners are chosen based on:

  • Sailing time!

  • Atmosphere on board

  • Clothing and decorations

Regatta winners will be announced at the Regatta Party!
