Check Out This Sample Itinerary
Day 1 – Trogir
Day 1 will involve everyone arriving and preparing for university sail week.
Trogir is one of our suggested starting places, but other Croatian cities like Split, Dubrovnik, or Zadar.
Trogir is a historic town, smaller than the bigger cities, but is still enclosed by medieval walls. Located on a small island in central Dalmatia. The old town has impressive architecture dating back to the 13th and 15th centuries.
You can spend the day exploring the narrow streets, find a hidden restaurant for lunch, and check out the art, cafes, and shops. One of the best places to check out is the seafront.
- Restaurants & Bars
- 2 Hour Walking Tour
- 1000-year-old monastery of St.Nicholas
- The Cathedral of St.Lovro
Day 2 – Stomorska
On day 2 we will start our sailing adventure by setting sail from Trogir and heading towards the island of Solta.
After a few hours of sailing, we can stop for a lunch, have a snorkel, kayak, SUP or swim off the boat, then maybe have a beer or two.
After lunch, we will set sail towards our first stop of the trip Stomorska. Here there is a bay that provides the perfect setting golden hour drinks and parties into the night.
- Beach Bar

Day 3 – Pakleni Islands/Hvar
After breakfast, we will make our way to our next destination.
Just north of Hvar, there is a stunning range of islands called the Pakleni Islands. We will drop anchor and stop here for lunch. Before spending the afternoon and evening on the island of Hvar. Here we will take a water taxi from the marina to Hvar town where there are lots of dining options and see why Hvar gets its name as the new party capital of Europe!
- Table in Nightclub
- Squad Meal
Day 4 – Stari Grad
Inevitably, the morning after Hvar is not going to be the quickest start… But after a late breakfast, we will set sail to our next point of call.
A short sail along the coastline offers ample opportunities to drop anchor for a swim and lunch stop before heading to the marina in the late afternoon.
Stari Grad is the oldest town in Croatia has numerous hidden gem restaurants and bars so it’s well worth having a venture away from the quay.
The long, narrow deep-water bay of Stari Grad offers the idealist location, protection for yachts and the perfect setting for your next night.
- Scooter Adventure
- Wine tasting
- Tvrdalj Castle
Day 5 – Vis
Vis Island sits just of the Dalmatian coastline, it is a rocky island and one of the most mysterious places in Croatia. Vis is small but has a lot to offer, with unspoiled nature, great beaches, excellent marine life, filled with history, and great local cuisine.
A great way to explore the town is by scooter. Alternatively, you can rent a bike and weave your way through the hills before enjoying a picturesque sunset dinner at Fort George. Afterwards, the real party begins.
- Rent scooters
- Blue Cave
- Seafood Restaurants
- Fort George Sunset
Day 6 – Bol
Day 6 is UNIVERSITY SAIL WEEK RACE DAY. The SailChecker team will arrange and organise the University sail week race day.
Bol was previously used as a military base locked away to the public. This stunning island has only recently been opened up to the public. Brac island is home to some of Croatia’s most stunning harbours.
Also home to Croatia’s most famous beach, the ‘Golden Cape’. Join us for yoga sessions on the beach or get your game face on and get ready for an afternoon of beach activities including SUP battles, Bulldogs, and Talent contest. This will be a University sail week favourite.
We finish the night at an open nightclub where big headliners will be DJing.

Day 7 – Trogir
It’s time to head back to Trogir, to refuel and relax before the grand finale of University sail week. You can spend the day exploring split whilst skippers wait for fuel or you can sit back, relax and enjoy a coffee on the waterfront. Then get ready to go out with a bang, literally, and dress to impress for the grand finale of University sail week.
