Check in at 5 pm and meeting the crew with traditional welcome drink. After a short navigation we come at Perast, where we spend first night on board enjoying dinner and company. The Gulf of Kotor (Boka Kotorska) cuts deeplyinto the coastline of the southern part of the Yugoslav Adriatic creating four spectacular bays ringed in mountains, the fjords of the Mediterranean. The little town of Perast is situated where the innermost bays of Risan and Kotor converge. Preceded by two jewel-like islands, Perast is focused on the sea. From the interaction between mainland and bay, the inherent contrast of stone and water, the dialogue of island and wave, sometimes in harmony but often in conflict, this sea-farming town has derived its unity, strength and sense of purpose.
