Ideal departure point for your sailing adventures
Base Rogac is situated in the northern part of the island Solta, in a bay surrounded by pine trees, only 9 nautical miles (i.e. 16 km) from Split. At the same time, Rogac is the island's main connection with mainland, which developed in modern history due to the needs of the nearby town - Grohote - the oldest and the largest place in the island's inland. It is also an ideal destination for yachtsmen and everyone eager to enjoy the natural beauties of the island and its surrounding area.
The bay of Rogac has three branches: Kasjun, Banje and Rogac. The bay of Kasjun is situated in the western part of the bay and is sheltered by a small wooded peninsula. The middle bay is Rogac, the best secluded bay with a quay for ferries and catamarans, which connect the island with Split several times a day. The pier of SailingEurope Charter is situated not far from the mentioned quay. The bay of Banje is situated in the southern part, ending with a pebbled beach, especially well adjusted for children. A short promenade from Rogac leads toward this bay.
The sea in the bay is clean and clear, so you can take a swim while waiting for your sailing boat to be prepared for embarkation. The bay is not too big, and the charter base is only a few steps away from the beach, local coffee bar or pizzeria, from where you can enjoy the view of traditional stone houses, the church of St. Theresa, etc.
An antique town of Grohote is situated only fifteen minutes on foot from Rogač. It has a store where the guests can do their shopping before their sailing trip. SailingEurope Charter also organizes food delivery (upon request). We strongly advise you to visit Grohote as well as the gallery of the naive painter Eugen Buktenica, and to stroll through vineyards and olive-groves toward the church of St. Michael.
The whole bay of Rogac is well secluded from all winds - the only exception is the northern wind, especially Bora (NE), but mostly during the winter months.

How to arrive?
You can reach Solta and Rogac either by ferry or catamaran, both departing from Split city port. Ferries and catamarans operate throughout the year (from morning till evening), and during the summer months, extra ferry lines are introduced.
Travelling by ferry takes 45 minutes. Tickets can be bought in the main business office of "Jadrolinija" in Split city port, and upon return in a business office in Rogac. Ticket price amounts to about 3 € for passengers, 14 € for cars and 6 € for motorcycles. You can check the time-table for ferry traffic at the following link: www.jadrolinija.hr.
There is a catamaran line from Split toward Rogac on a daily basis - the drive lasts 30 minutes. Ticket price amounts to about 3 € and tickets are bought at the "SEM" agency, right next to the quay.
Travelling by plane
During the summer months, Split airport is very well connected with almost all European countries, either directly or via Zagreb. The airport is only 25 km far away from the city port, which you can reach by bus or taxi. SailingEurope Charter can organize transfer by mini-bus or car from the airport to the city port and vice versa.
Travelling by car or bus
If arriving from the direction of north, the highway Zagreb - Split is the fastest way to reach Split. If arriving from the direction of Trieste, just drive toward Rijeka and then choose one of the offered alternatives:
- The Adriatic highway along the coast (toward Split) - it is somewhat longer but more interesting.
- Use the highway toward Zagreb and then switch to the highway Zagreb - Split upon the junction "Bosiljevo 1".
If you want to transport the car to the island of Solta, head toward Split city port, from where you can reach our base by ferry. You won't have difficulties in finding the ferry quay - just follow the directions for "Split centre" or "Split port". You can also leave your car in a secured parking area or in a garage of the hotel "Marjan". The hotel "Marjan" is situated on the coast, near to the very centre of Split and in the foot of the park and wood Marjan. It is only 15 minutes walk from the ferry port. Daily parking price in the garage amounts to about 9 €, and for the outdoor parking about 7 €.
Split has a very good bus connection with all bigger cities both in Croatia and abroad. The Split bus station is situated right next to the main city port.
Travelling by train
There are fast trains from Zagreb to Split on a daily basis (8 hours drive) as well as business trains (5,5 hours drive). The railway station is situated very near the ferry port.
Travelling by ship
If travelling by ship, you can use some of the regular ferry lines from Rijeka or Dubrovnik toward Split, or international ferry or fast lines from Italy (Ancona, Civitanova, Giulianova, Pescara, Bari). The quay for international lines is only a few minutes walk from ferries and catamarans for Solta.
* IMPORTANT REMARKS:
1. Last-Minute bookings or changes:
The price of speedboat tranfer (190 € if you travel by car, 190 € if you travel by plane) is valid in case of booking the transfer minimum 2 weeks in advance. If the speadboat is booked last-minute (less than 2 weeks in advance) or if there are last-minute (less than 2 week before the transfer) changes to the schedule or number of passengers, this causes additional expenses and the transfer price will increase to 20 EUR per person per way.
Due to size of the speadboat, it is generally possible to carry one suitcase+handbag per person. Additional luggage may be charged as an extra person (15 EUR per way).
3. Subsidized costs:
Please note that the actual cost of the speadboat transfer is much higher than the price paid by Clients, and that SailingEurope Charter pays the price difference to the speadboat provider company. We are doing our best to arrange for your comfort and ensure a most convenient arrival to your Yacht.
