This year we were not as lucky with the weather as last year: the weather forecast for the week was actually pretty bad with lots of rain and thunder forecasted. Unfortunately, the weather forecast seemed to be truthful as well as just after an hour from leaving Dubrovnik, we found ourselves in the middle of thunderstorm. We were sailing at this time, but decided to lower the sails and continue with the engine. We headed for the nearby island called Sipan and found a very sheltered anchorage outside the village Sipanska Luka. The rain stopped in the afternoon and the evening was actually very beautiful.
The scenery on the first day was pretty grey.
Fortunately the rain stopped in the afternoon.

The following day was sunny but calm
The wind increased a bit in the afternoon, so we got a chance to hoist the sails for an hour or so.

The bay near Luka Polace is also a popular wild anchorage.
