Croatia : Dalmatian Coast (Kornati park)

The Meditteranean Dalmatian Coast contains more than 600 islands often at paddling distances. Especially the Kornati Park offers exceptional possibilities for paddlers. The paddler has to deal with 2 complications : the weather can change very rapidly (the famous Bora landwind) and  there are not many places to go ashore.
Kornati Island. 
The islands in this area have an elongated form : 
some 40 km long and here and there only 50 m wide.
