Let the next generation enjoy the Adriatic Sea while sailing in Crotia. Therefore we must respect nature and the environment:

  • do not throw rubbish into the sea while sailing in Croatia
  • do not discharge waste water from the boat near the shore and in protected areas
  • do not violate the law on fishing
  • protect aquatic plants and animals
  • apply to the competent bodies of environmental pollution
  • open fire is forbidden
  • save the water, Croatia is full with fresh water but islands are not, so please save the water whenever you can (do not clean boats or take long showers).
  • Croatian tap water is safe for drinking so you can always refill your bottles (but not the water tanks on your sailing boats).
  • save energy: sail as much as you can, try windsurfing (Korčula area), kayak (island Mljet national Park), avoid motor scooters and motor boats.
