PROVERSA - ISLANDS OF KORNATI
PROVERSA VELA, passage between the NW coast of the island of Kornat and the islet of Katina; it links Srednji kanal with the open sea.
The passage is navigable for vessels drawing up to 2 m. Its narrowest part is marked by 4 stone marks; there are no navigation lights The bora is violent and blows in gusts from various directions; the sirocco causes a sea. The current (up to 2.5 knots) sets estwards; vessels navigating against the current should keep closer to the island of Kornat.
Proversa Mala, passage between Dugi otok and Katina. Navigation is temporarily prohibited because work on dredging the passage is under way.
It is advisable to use Chart 10020 published by The State Hydrographic Institute in Split.
Mooring: Small yachts can anchor in Proversa mala cove, E or SSE of Skoljic rock (white truncated concrete pyramid). The shoal some 200m of Skoljic is marked by a spar surmounted by a cone (the whole mark is black). The small cove (with a small mole, depth 1.5 m) on the S coast of Katina island affords good allround shelter (Kod Mare Tonine inn). The W cove, which is somewhat larger, is a good anchorage with depths of 310 m; good holding; vessels can also secure to the rocks ashore.
