Sailing Conditions and Climate

The Mediterranean climate is generally mild, with warm summers and mild winters. The sea temperature in the Mediterranean is usually warm enough for swimming from May to October, with the warmest temperatures in August and September. However, the weather can vary depending on the specific location and time of year.

The Mediterranean is also known for its excellent sailing conditions, with mild temperatures and steady winds, making it the perfect destination for sailors of all levels. And with our cruises, you'll have access to some of the best sailing spots in the region, including the Amalfi Coast, the Greek islands, and the Balearic islands.

The western Mediterranean generally has lighter winds and calmer seas, making it ideal for beginners and less experienced sailors. On the other hand, the eastern Mediterranean can have stronger winds and rougher seas, making it more challenging for sailors. The summer dates of July and August tend to have the lightest winds and calmest seas, while the spring and fall months can have stronger winds and rougher seas.

The most common winds in the Mediterranean are the Mistral, a strong and gusty wind that blows from the northwest, and the Tramontana, a cold and gusty wind that blows from the north. 

There are many things to do and see while sailing in the Mediterranean. Here are a few popular activities:

  • Visit ancient ruins: The Mediterranean is home to some of the most significant historical sites in the world. Sail to places like Athens, Rome, and Pompeii to discover ancient ruins and gain a deeper understanding of the region's rich cultural heritage. Reading from a history book does not compare to facing these ancient structures. When you view a historically significant site, it is a truly special feeling. 

  • Explore charming coastal towns and villages: The Mediterranean is known for its scenic towns and villages, each with its own special character and charm. Some popular destinations include the French Riviera in France, the Amalfi Coast in Italy, and the Spanish island of Mallorca.

After experiencing the local dining, you'll be rushing to leave some excellent reviews!

  • Relax on secluded beaches: The Mediterranean is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, many with stellar reviews and even awards! Take a break from sailing and enjoy a day on a secluded beach. The stunning beaches are the perfect location to spend your day reading your book and chilling out, free from stress or responsibilities.

  • Water sports: The Mediterranean is an ideal destination for water sports, such as swimming, snorkeling, and diving. Explore the underwater world of the Mediterranean and discover the rich marine life that the region has to offer. 

  • Party on the Greek islands: The Greek islands are known for their vibrant nightlife and party atmosphere. Sail to places like Mykonos and Santorini to find the lively party scene.

If you are an experienced angler or even a beginner, you can have a chance to find a variety of fish species, from swordfish to sea bass. And when you moor in one of the local ports and go dining, you'll realise how fresh the seafood is!

  • Learn to sail: A yacht charter isn't just about luxury and relaxation. It's also an opportunity to challenge yourself and learn new skills.

we all had a great holiday
September 2023
We had a perfect sailing week on this boat in October '23. Boat was in a very good condition and performed really well both on sails and on engine. She easily demonstrated 5-6 knots of speed in a 7-8 TWS on a broad reach under gennaker, so we rarely had engine on and enjoyed silence and real smooth sailing. Area has a lot of options to stop for any taste - from nature anchorages to atmospheric restaurants. Knidos and Datcha are the must to visit! Service was perfect and we didn't experienced any issues during checkin or checkout.
