Rijecki Zaljev

Characteristics

Description

Rijecki Zaliv is an extensive basin in which several ports lie. It may be approached through three main channels and entered via three straits.

Kvarner, the W and widest channel, leads from the open Adriatic Sea end enters the basin via Kanal Vela Vrata.
Kvarneric, the middle channel, leads through Srednja Vrata into the basin. This channel is connected at its S end to the N end of Zadarski Kanal and to the open sea by Kvarnericka Vrata.

Velebitski Kanal, the E channel, is long and narrow and lies close W of the mainland. It is separated from Kvarneric to the W by several large islands. This channel leads through Vinodolski Kanal and Tihi Kanal at its N end and enters the NE head of the basin.
There are numerous anchorages for small craft along both shores of the N part of this channel. However, as there is little shelter for large vessels, this part of the channel is generally avoided during the late autumn and winter. At such times, large vessels proceed to Rijecki Zaliv via Srednja Vrata or Kvarner.

Rijecki Zaliv est un vaste bassin dans lequel se trouvent plusieurs ports. Il peut être abordé à travers trois canaux principaux et est rejoint par trois détroits.
Kvarner, le canal à l'W, le plus large, part de l'extrémité de la mer Adriatique, au large, à travers le bassin intermédiaire Kanal Vela Vrata.
Kvarneric, le canal du milieu, mène à travers Srednja Vrata dans le bassin. Ce canal est relié à son extrémité S à l'extrémité N du Zadarski Kanal et au large par Kvarnericka Vrata.
Velebitski Kanal, le canal E, est long et étroit et longe le côté W de la partie continentale. Il est séparé de Kvarneric à l'W par plusieurs grandes îles. Ce canal conduit à  Vinodolski Kanal et Tihi Kanal à son extrémité N et pénètre dans la tête NE du bassin.
Il y a de nombreux mouillages pour les petites embarcations le long des deux rives de la partie N de ce canal. Cependant, comme il y a peu d'abris pour les grands navires, cette partie du canal est généralement évitée pendant la fin de l'automne et l'hiver. Pendant cette période, les grands navires vont à Rijecki Zaliv via Srednja Vrata ou Kvarner.
