The Story of Sandokan

In the last days of summer, we got a visit from Marino and Biserka Ivančić, the first owners of the Sandokan leut. They brought photos of his launch back in 1978. With lot of memories they talk about the agreement on the construction of the ship, the ideas they thought of when arranging the buy and the master who built it. The ship had a reputation. When they sailed with her on the Adriatic, everyone looked and admired her, they say. Sandokan, a leut 8.53 m long and 2.90 m in width, was made by the late Šime Jušić, a shipbuilder from Betina. They say they wanted a traditional leut as they saw it in Betina and Murter, but modernized and slightly different. Šime was…

Launch of the Leut “Kvarneriol”

Saturday, 12th of September In the shipyard Marin owned by the shipbuilder Ante Fržop, a boat type leut named Kvarneriol, 8 meters long and 3 meters wide, was launched. She has a 12-meter-long lantina (yard) and a 57 HP engine, registered for the transport of 12 people, equipped with a 150l oil tank and a 150l water tank, a toilet with a sink and a cooking area. Kvarneriol is made for several days of sailing and a longer stay at sea. The design is like one of our traditional boats – turned into a yacht, but still traditional because she can be paddled on two oars if there’s a need to. One oar on the bow, another oar on the stern. And you can also…

Evening of Traditional Crafts and Skills

The Evening of Traditional Crafts and Skills, which we organize together with KUD ZORA Betina and many of our volunteers, took place in a somewhat more modest edition due to the current epidemiological situation, but no less interesting than in previous years. This year, we put the emphasis on the household skills – we washed clothes in a hot water and demonstrated washing clothes using the traditional wooden washboard – many of our visitors showed great skill in this discipline! Thanx to our Martina Sladić who organized the move of the traditional kitchen armoir which greatly contributed to the authentic presentation of the traditional get together at the table.
