As of the 14th century, tho role of the island's center was taken over by the town of Crepsa, today's Cres. One of the reasons was that up to then seamen sailed only with "fair" winds, that is, winds astern. Being that the winds of this area often change directions, coming from the southern quadrant: Levant (eastern), Jugo (southeastern) and Scirocco (southern) and those from the northern quadrant: the Bora (northeastern), the Tramontana (northern) and the Mistral. Ships kept close to the shores of our islands and their many bays and inlets sheltered the boats from bad weather and storms.
