Here are 5 reasons why you should book your Croatia adventure with Sail Week Croatia.

1. The people you meet

Regardless of if you’re going by yourself or in a group of eight you’re going to meet so many people from all around the world.

You and your new travel buddies become a family where you all pitch in to buy more alcohol and have cute dinners in town together. You all help to clean up when there’s a mess after cooking and the person with the spray-on coconut sunscreen becomes everyone’s best friend!

Not only do you have an amazing time with your new yacht family, you also have time to mingle with people from the different yachts who are sailing with you.

Between:

  • swimming in the ocean 
  • partying on the islands 
  • jumping from boat to boat 

you’ll soon find yourself sharing a watermelon filled with vodka on someone else’s yacht by the end of the week! Trust me, it’s epic! 

2. The Parties

The Croatian nightlife is next level. One night you’ll find yourself dancing on a pebble beach under the stars and the next you’ll find yourself dancing inside a rock cave in Makarska!

Sail Week Croatia have the greatest party destination on each island and the best part is, it’s all organised for you! All you need to do is follow the crowd and you’ll find yourself dancing to summer tunes with everyone on Sail Week Croatia!

3. The Day Activities

Sailing in Croatia isn’t just about the parties – even though they are some of the best parties ever! The day activities on each island are a mix of adventure and sightseeing.

For some adventure, you can go

  • ziplining,
  • cliff diving and
  • hire a scooter to explore the whole island

Or, you can relax on the island by visiting some of their picturesque beaches, exploring the town and finding the amazing lookouts for your next Instagram picture.

4. The water

The water is like nothing you’ve ever felt before!

You’d think that jumping in the middle of the ocean would be freezing but it’s the exact opposite! It was so warm and calm, our skipper had to bribe us to get out of the water so that we could make our way to the next island.

You’ll be dreaming about the water long after your sail week!

5. The Circle Raft Party – the best party on water!

This is the one party that everyone has been waiting for… and for good reason!

The skippers find a secluded cove between the islands and set themselves up in a circle making it your very own private pool! Before long, everyone has their inflatable toys out, everything from inflatable pizzas to giant yellow ducks and unicorns. The Sail Week crew bring out giant speakers and set up a DJ stand on one of the catamarans.

Then the party starts!!!

Everyone comes to the centre of the circle to dance together on their inflatables while others dance on their yachts and at the top of catamarans. There is no other party like it!

Millions of people sat in silence as Britney stole the MTV VMA’s once again. Performing ‘Like a Virgin’ on stage with Christina Aguilera and Madonna, she emerged from a giant wedding cake and literally stopped time when she locked lips with Madonna. The camera then turned over to ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake looking as uncomfortable as ever.

At the age of 16, Britney released her first song and she was pretty proud of it too. She told Billboard that she knew the song would be a hit. “When I started working with Max Martin in Sweden, he played the demo for ‘Baby One More Time’ for me, and I knew from the start it was one of those songs you want to hear again and again. It just felt really right.”

Nick Murphy responds to fan confusion about his name change

Nick Murphy, formerly known as Chet Faker, took to https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FChetfaker%2Fposts%2F1146758122028801&width=500” target=”_blank”>Facebook earlier today to explain to the world-and to himself-the reason why he ditched his nom de plume.

His announcement last September shook the Australian music scene when he told the world that her will no longer be using Chet Faker as his stage name. I think a little bit in all of us died as we started to wonder if we’d ever see his unique style of music again.

Dating just went to a whole new level

What ever happened to old fashioned dating? You know, when you meet someone at a party, or at a park, or maybe they are standing in a museum admiring your favourite artwork? Ok, maybe that last bit only happens for Blair Waldorf, but a girl can dream!

Now, finding your soulmate is just a swipe away, and you can now test your compatibility based on their taste in music. Bumble, the female-led dating site is teaming up with the music streaming service, Spotify, to allow users to take a quick look at their potential match’s favourite artists. This partnership will link the two sites enabling users to discover different music by simply clicking on the artists, bringing them to the artists Spotify profile. If you don’t like their taste in music you can simply just swipe them away, its as easy as that!

This new partnership isn’t rolling out for another few weeks,  so don’t worry, that will give you enough time to get rid of the music that might be a bit too embarrassing for the world to see. But, according to Tech Crunch, once the new update is up and running, there will be an option that will allow you to hide your secret musical loves.

The new feature creates a new gate for users to discover different kinds of music, new artists, whilst too being able to learn a little bit more about their potential suitor before they swipe. “Music says a lot about who we are as people and connecting culturally can serve a foundation for creating meaningful relationships” explained Whitney Wolfe, CEO and founder of the company.

Not only does this allow for great publicity for both companies and artists, it also acts as an icebreaker when trying to navigate that dreadful first conversation. Now you can do so with a little bit more info on the person, that’s not so creepy right?  But hey, who doesn’t like a good stalk before dating someone.
