(visited by Gerhard Gabriel and Christa)

27-Jun-2003 -- In summer 2003 we were cruising in the Croatian archipelago on board of our sailing yacht BONITA. On the 27th of June we reached the confluence point at 43 degrees north and 17 degrees east, which is near the northcoast of the island of Korčula. Unfortunately there was poor visibility, so the pictures are not very impressive. I think it would be better to take the pictures in winter, but that is not the main sailing season. But anyway, we only wanted to check off one more confluence point.
