After a pleasant stay in Murter we moved on to Tribunj. That was a short trip but with good wind. What a good wind is for sailing is not always good for mooring but we managed anyway, Time for a safe arrival cold beer.

The weather forecast, via the VHF, was favorable and so we were of to Dugo Otok, via the Kornati islands. Winds were good but later turned to NW, so we had to use the engine in the end. Approximately 35 miles today.
