30.08.06 : Sudden north wind Tremuntana was so strong that two sailing boats that were mooring at Korcula's western pier were thrown at the shore. Thanks to Korcula's harbour captain Vojko Trojan and his crew, the boats and passengers were saved from greater jeopardy . Click on images to enlarge.

About Tremuntana wind : Tremuntana ( Tramontana) - The name tramontana comes from the Italian word 'tramonto' which means sunset. It's a northern thermal wind (usually it's a little bit colder) and blows in the evening when the weather is stable. When it's on in the afternoon the wind is never stronger than 10-15 knots. However, the Tramontana is also a wind that comes after rain or a storm and then it can be very dangerous and strong.
