On arrival at the island we planned to anchor in Uvala Smetnja but it is […]

Having provisioned in Dubrovnik, we were below deck early the next morning preparing to leave when a large motor boat arrived sounding its horn and calling us. ZigZag was anchored just outside the marina which turned out to be the exact spot that this boat wanted to drop its anchor to reverse into its mooring […]
