Good sailing, swimming and a stowaway!

With a change of crew aboard Rhapsody, we left Split to rendezvous with our flotilla yachts in the turquoise waters of Primosten. With a marked change in the weather we enjoyed a fantastic first day sail up to the Krka River, with the new Rhapsody crew from Australia, USA and Canada practicing their tacking skills every 5 mins up the river. The heavy winds arrived that evening and kept us in Skradin for two nights, a harsh contrast to the lack of wind on our last trip! While getting ready to leave Skradin for the Kornati islands, the Australian crew aboard Marijana reported over the VHF…”we have a stowaway on board” It transpired that the stowaway was a very scared tabby cat. Crusoe, as he’d been newly named had been hiding out on Marijana since Split and had taken a few days to appear. Unable to catch Crusoe to take him for a dinghy ride to shore, Crusoe decided that the safest place to hide was behind the stove. Bites of tuna and ham didn’t tempt him out from behind the stove, but a bit of peace and quiet in Vrulje did and upon our return from dinner at Robinson’s restaurant Crusoe had left Marijana to start a new life in the Kornati islands.
