Split, Croatia is many sailors' dream destination. Set on the Adriatic Sea, this coastal town offers everything a European sailor may want. The spring and summer months have favorable temperatures and strong winds for sailing. Plus, the small towns around Split offer a variety of cultural experiences to enjoy during the day. Tourist sites such as Diocletian’s Palace and Peristil Square make for a memorable visit to archaic Croatia.

Split is the next frontier for sailors who have already experienced everything the Mediterranean has to offer, or who want to go off the beaten path. Croatian sailing is less about coastal relaxation and more about historic majesty and cultural immersion. 12 Knots can provide an exceptional sailing experience for you and your group.

Split is an ideal place to begin a sailing charter for all group sizes and needs. Whether you’re an experienced skipper or a beginner taking on their first major sailing trip, we can provide the creature comforts and information needed to make your trip memorable. Below is some of the most important information about Split bareboat rentals for you to start planning and booking your trip.

Sailing Conditions in Split

Split offers exceptional sailing conditions throughout the year. Temperatures range from 22-28 C in the spring, and 26-30 C in the summer. Wind speeds typically reach 10 to 20 knots with calm seas in the warmer months. The early autumn can also be an enjoyable time to sail; however, temperatures begin to drop in October, causing an increase in rainfall.

Three dominant winds determine sailing conditions in Croatia:

  • The Bora: This north-easterly wind brings cool weather to the Adriatic Sea and coastline
  • The Sirocco: This warm and humid wind reaches the entire Adriatic coastline at a typical speed of 16-20 knots.
  • The Maestral: This wind is strongest in the mornings with average speeds of 16-20 knots.

Best Time to Vacation in Split

Sailing in Split is best in the late spring, summer, and early fall. During these times you can expect calm seas and a warm, dry climate. Average temperatures in Croatia are favorable most of the year except for the winter months. This brings many other sailing tourists to the area, with whom you may have to compete for moorings.

The summer is the busiest time, so if you’re planning a summer sailing trip expect crowds in the cities. However, traveling to Croatia in the summer affords some of the most beautiful blue skies, warm waters, and very little rain. Regardless of the time you plan your trip, be vigilant of local weather patterns to best plan sailing times and duration.

Sailing Difficulty Level

Croatia has over 1200 islands and cities from which to start sailing, but Split is the perfect place to do so. This area is equipped for beginner sailors with plenty of mooring buoys and marinas and can offer easier conditions to sail than parts of the Mediterranean.

For beginners, sailing from May to September will offer the best conditions. Regardless of your experience level, you will want to be cautious at popular marinas due to the influx of sailors during “Yacht Week” and the official sailing season.

If you are planning to book a bareboat charter in Split, Croatia, you will need to provide a certificate of competence. These are required for all sailing vessels in the region. If you do not have such a certificate, a crewed charter will be provided, as all 12 Knots crews are certified.
