Famed as the birth place of Goran Ivanisavic (Wimbledon Champion in 2001) and for being the capital of the Russian protectorate of Brac, the small town of Milna forms the main focus for sailors on the western shore of the Brac and located just to the north of the Splitska Vrata. where it provides a useful stopping off spot for yachts traversing that busy passage.

Welcome to the Home of Sailing in Croatia, the website of the Croatia-International Yacht Club. The club is a virtual one and from our website we aim to provide the best information for those travelling to or sailing in Croatia, with reviews of destinations, restaurants and cafes, marinas, anchorages and harbours.

Located at the entrance to the Milna bay at the western end of the Island of Brac is one of the few thriving private marina’s in the Croatian Islands. It is open year round but has only wet berths. Facilities include well maintained toilets and showers, and 24 hour power and water. Staff are friendly and helpful, assisting as necessary with mooring.

This email from a marketing rep at an investment company called Kermas was not the usual sales pitch (buy a berth at such and such a marina or attend a boat show) which we usually get bombarded with but was announcing a new marina development.
A new independent marina in Croatia - in itself unusual, I cannot be sure but the last development on this scale I am aware of was Frapa at Rogoznicsa. So I opened the prospectus and was amazed to find the site was in TROGIR!
