It takes some guts, but riding the Adriatic seas with help of bora (bura) wind can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The strong wind makes some rather powerful waves and can propel sails to very high speeds. For those addicted to adrenaline and seaside enjoyments, the whoosh of this wind is the sign to gear up for beautiful adventure. One must however note that bora is not to be taken lightly. The wind is perfectly capable of causing a lot of mischief to those who underestimate its power. Unless you have firm belief in your capabilities, it is better to stick in your room and wait for nature to swift into more stable state.
