By The Yacht Week
Posted on 5th October 2020
Before you arrive:
Fill out crew list
We want your holiday to get off to the perfect start, so please ensure your crew list is completed 4 weeks prior to arrival. Simply log-in to your booking and add your crew following the steps given. Cabin bookers please only add the name of the friend you'll be sharing a cabin with. If you don't do this, you might not get your yacht in time.
Once you have completed your crew list, you can save a lot of time on site if you all check-in online. Each member of the crew must do this before arrival, which will make getting your yacht on time that much easier. Online check-in will open 4 months prior to departure.
Getting to Croatia
Zadar Airport (ZAD) is a 15 minute taxi ride from the marina. Alternatively, Split Airport (SPU) is a 90 min taxi ride away. We recommend using a flight comparison website to find the best flights:
Expedia – www.expedia.com
SkyScanner – www.skyscanner.com
By Train/ Bus
It is possible to get to Croatia by train or bus from the rest of Europe. If travelling by train, it is recommended to take the train to Zagreb and then take the bus from Zagreb to Zadar main bus station.
Croatia is also very easy to get to by car from Europe.
Parking is available inside both Dalmacija (Sukosan) and Kornati marinas for €6.50 - €7 per day. Please note that payment is cash only at the exit in Kuna.

We recommend using VisaHQ to find out if you require any visas to enter the country - www.visahq.co.uk
Getting to your marina
Zadar Airport to Marina Sukosan
For larger groups, a taxi might be your best bet. Drivers line up outside and usually charge between €20-€30 (150 Kuna) from the airport to the marina.
Hop on a one of the regular shuttle buses to Zadar Main Bus Station (20 mins), then catch the 928 bus to Sukosan Marina (15 mins). This costs approximately €15.
Zadar Airport to Marina Kornati
For larger groups, a taxi might be your best bet. Drivers line up outside and usually charge between €40-€50 (4000 Kuna) from the airport to the marina. If the taxi driver needs more information, ask them to take you to Biograd-na-Moru.
Buses from Zadar to Kornati Marinado run but only every 4 hrs. To get a bus from Zadar we recommend enquiring at Zadar main bus station and if a departure is not imminent get a taxi.
Time to arrive/depart
We recommend you arrive at your base marina around 3pm. This will give you time to register with us, check in with the charter company and complete your food shopping, before you get access to your yacht by around 6pm.
You will get back to the marina on Friday afternoon (the exact time varies depending on weather conditions), when you will stay one last night on the yachts in the marina and will check out and leave the yacht by 9am on Saturday morning.
Onsite registration for yacht bookers and skipper
The Yacht Week staff will be ready and waiting for you at your marina where you will register and collect your TYW wristband.
Lead Booker: Bring cash/credit card to pay the security deposit* and your passport.
* The security deposit is the maximum cost you can be charged if you damage your yacht or lose equipment. The amount can be found in your booking profile.
Onsite registration for cabin bookers
The skipper will go to the yachting company who is in charge of your yacht. Each cabin guest should give the skipper their deposit in cash. The exact amount will be communicated in your welcome email a couple of weeks prior to departure.
Luggage at check-in
Find a safe place to leave your luggage for the day. The Yacht Week staff do not take responsibility for any lost luggage or items.
Please keep away from the yachts
You will not be able to board your yacht until it has been declared ready by the charter company. Use the time to grab a beer or do your grocery shopping.
We recommend shopping close to the marina. Most islands will have supermarkets to stock up throughout the week as well. The team onsite will be able to direct you to the nearest supermarket.
If shopping for a whole week/crew feels overwhelming, use this shopping list as guidance, it will make sure you won't miss out on any essentials.
