The Aegean Sea is an inland sea within the Mediterranean basin, situated between Europe and Asia.
The Aegean Sea extends from Crete, to the south, to the Dardanelles Strait, to the north and is between Greece, to the west, and Turkey, to the east. The Aegean Sea is isolated from the rest of the Mediterranean by the southern islands of Kythira, Crete and Rhodes.
The Aegean Sea is a large area counting numerous archipelagos and many remote islands including Crete, the Cyclades or the Sporades.
From east to west, the Aegean Sea is between 300 and 400 km wide; from north to south, it is about 600 km. North of Crete is where the Aegean sea is at its deepest, reaching 2100 metres deep.
Lying between the mountains of the Anatolian plateau and the Balkan region, the Aegean Sea is located where strong air pressure areas meet (high-pressure areas to the west and low-pressure areas to the east) thus making it a sea that can be difficult to navigate. Boating areas in the Aegean Sea are windswept by the Meltemi wind, which can blow quite strongly in summer. These areas may therefore become dangerous, especially in July and August when the Meltemi can blow at force of 7 to 8 on the Beaufort scale. Due to the thermal effect, it tends to lose in strength in the evening to then come back up in the morning. It is strongly recommended to regularly check the weather forecast so as not to get caught off guard. With a careful analysis of the weather forecast and a thorough study of the route, it is not impossible to sail in the Aegean Sea during the summer.
A few useful tips to sail in the Aegean Sea:
- To sail early in the morning before the thermal breeze strengthens the prevailing wind;
- To sail at night, when the Meltemi, which is still present aloft, may sometimes calm down on the surface due to thermal effect;
- To find a place to take shelter if you get caught off guard.
