Vela Luka (Anchorage)

Sailing in company with Carina, we anchored right in front of the town among the fishing boats.

Nice quaint town. Lots of restaurants and shops.

My first opportunity to buy a Croatian SIM card for my phone. I bought a T-Mobile card for 100 Kn which worked well all over Croatia.

Lumbarda (Anchorage)

I anchored outside the marina in a few meters on sand and weed, and went ashore for a nice pizza.

When the wind came up from the NW I decided to head back the monastery and when that was no good, to Korcula Town inner basin for the night.

Wine tasting at Mr Zure's

Korcula Town

A lovely old walled city, reputed to be the birth place of Marco Polo. There is a house that one can visit which they call Marco Polo's home.

The city's narrow streets are laid out on a grid which is quite unique for this period.

Outer basin (Anchorage)

This was about 8-10 meters, anchored off the eastern shore near the beach ferry dock.

This anchorage was OK, but a bit too deep for my liking when testing the anchor. So, after a quick tour of Korcula town I left for Lumbarda, but returned the same night to anchor in the inner basin.

Monastery (Anchorage)

Franciscan church and monastery , built in 14th and 15th century in Gothic and Renaissance style.

It is a popular anchorage, but I could not find shelter from the strong westerly that was blowing, or a reliable, weed-free bottom.

Inner basin (Anchorage)

You leave the little island (rock) to port and go into the inner basin where there is easily 2.5m and anchor in front of the konoba in well protected and picturesque surroundings.

When I first arrived, I anchored in the outer bay in front of the beach ferry stop, but it was over 8 meters and the holding was not great.

This is a cozy and secure anchorage and I was the only sailboat boat in there.

I did not go ashore to the konoba but it looked popular and fun.
