Igor is a years-long licensed skipper and a sailing expert. He has been sailing since he was 6. It all started with family holidays – his parents owned a sailing yacht. “It was an experience like no other. Sailing is the most incredible family holiday you can have.” That’s how he knows the Adriatic coast like the palm of his hand. Igor is your insider; he will guide you to the most stunning places.
His first formal sailing education was at the optimist sailing school when he was 12. After that came dinghy racing, friends’ trips, and two skipper academies. Igor has had a Yacht-master Category license since 2018. Igor has an MBA in Marketing and a management, sales, and procurement background.
2018 was the year when he changed his career from the office to the yachting industry. His professional career started with monohulls of all sizes and brands. After the first year, he upgraded his sailing knowledge to motor yachts and catamarans. In the last 5 years, he accumulated over 16000NM and sailed all around the Croatian coast and the Mediterranean. With over 40 boats under his belt and many charter companies he worked for, Igor will find the right yacht for you. You are safe in his hands.
After his first summer season in Croatia, he relocated to Vancouver and worked as the assistant general manager of a Marina in Vancouver. That was a valuable asset for understanding the administrative and financial side of the yachting industry. “The international experience gave me the confidence to partner with Vedrana and open our travel agency.”
Now he owns and manages the Taste and Sail Croatia travel agency and works as a captain on a crewed catamaran, Lagoon 620, in Croatia.
