Sailing Croatia Day 8: Tucepi Marina - Brac Island

Short day today, to compensate for the night before. I got up at about 11.30 AM and Rhiannon came up later on when all of us were enjoying lunch. Farinas and Dad had gone of to have a coffee and leave us to rest.
In the marina Dad and me helped some French people park in their boat and shortly later Daniel and Annalena showed up after a 13 hours drive from Nesselwang. Shopping was on the list (again) after we got all their belongings on to the boat. Whilst we young ones were gone the rest got their things packed on the boat and loaded in to the car. We met a Croatian in the shop who heard us speak German and asked where in Germany we were from. He knew of Kempten.
Back at the boat we said our goodbyes to Farinas who took Daniel and Annalenas car back to Biograd and swapped it for theirs. 
Back on the boat we left shortly later and motored towards Brac. Most of the way was spent like that, as the wind didn't really pick up that much on the short journey there. On the last stretch to the protected bay of Rasotica we managed to sail a bit, but shortly later the sails had to be put back down as the bay wasn't that wide. Motored in to the bay and saw that we couldn't really use an anchor to stay there effectively, so the next hour saw Daniel rowing me around the place fixing lines on steel ring in the rocks and securing lines around rocks to hold the boat. After all that had been completed and the boat tidied up Rhiannon got to cocking us some dinner (spaghetti with tomato sauce) and I rowed ashore for a time lapse video. Had a quick walk around the place and found a few houses behind the trees. Back on the boat we had dinner and then (half) a game of phase ten.
Track at GPSies.

Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Weather: Sunny with clouds coming over the mountains. Little wind.
