About Waypoint Charter Croatia

Waypoint Charter is a family story of Damir Čargo and Gordana Zavoreo. Damir, a sailor from head to toe, is related personally and professionally to the sea and boats, ever since he was a boy. He experienced his first maneuvers, south and north winds as a 10-year-old boy in the Optimist class. He continued his sports career in the Olympic classes, in which he defended the colors of the national team for several consecutive years. A logical sequence for this sea-enthusiast was to become a skipper for the first yacht-charter companies, which in the late eighties appeared on the Adriatic.

As early as 1990, he began to represent the Greek-French yacht charter firm Kavos, as a base manager in Trogir. His wife Gordana joined him there and for the next 4 years they ran the company Kavos, which in the meantime was bought by The Moorings. They represented the Moorings company in France for 3 years and there they opened the company’s bases in Antibes, Nice and Corsica.

This useful experience, followed by desire to return home to the Adriatic, encouraged them to set up their own yacht-charter company in Croatia. And so, in 1994 Waypoint was established, with only 3 sailing boats in Rovinj in the north of the Adriatic… Parts of the southern Adriatic were still under occupation, but as soon as Croatia freed all its coasts, Waypoint opened its base in Trogir. In the following years, attempts were made to open bases in Zadar, Pula and Dubrovnik while today Waypoint has its bases in Trogir, Dubrovnik and Seget.
After tens of years of hard work in building this fleet, Damir now has a bit of time for himself and his passion for sporting sailing, so today he competes in several offshore regattas on his Pogo class 40 as a solo or double-handed sailor.
