One of best internal tips is to please remember and pack light

With plenty of sun, Croatia is one of the sunniest European destinations. The climate along the Adriatic coast in summer is quite dry and hot. If your sailing trip is in summer, just bring bathing suite, extra swimming towels, and your personal wardrobe (not too much). In case of rain you need to bring some warm clothes, maybe a light sweater, water resistant wind jacket and a pair of sneakers with rubber sole. It is highly recommended to bring your soft handbag a duffel bag or rucksack instead of a plastic suitcase, simply to gain more space in your cabin.
