Sailing in Croatia 2014 HD – Episode 1 – Setting Sails

Dear Friends,

We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate 1000+ subscribers to our YouTube channel than releasing the first episode of a new video series Sailing in Croatia 2014.

The moment you leave the safety of the dock and venture out into the open sea is the moment of truth. Is the moment you discover if you and your boat are prepared for what is ahead of you.

Thank you very much to you all for your wonderful support. We know some of you but the majority we never met (yet). Still your messages, comments, likes and even your critiques make us feel like family. Keep them coming! 🙂

Fair winds and following seas,
Marco and Desiree
