Early summer morning in the port of fishing town Komiza, island of Vis, Croatia...trying to capture the beauty of this incredible wooden boat !
Komiza is famous for its fishing fleet and is often held as the capital of Dalmatian fishing. The tradition of sail powered wooden fishing boats - Gajeta Falkusa - goes back over three hundred years. These traditionally built boats, with a lateen rig, were designed for deep sea fishing and up until 1936 were raced in an annual regatta to the island of Palagruza.
