The Ionian Sea is part of the Mediterranean Sea. It lies between the Italian peninsula and Sicily to the west and is bordered by Albania and Greece to the east.
Connected with the Tyrrhenian Sea by the Strait of Messina and with the Adriatic Sea by the Strait of Otranto, the Ionian Sea borders the Greek coast from Corfu to Zakinthos. Between the mountainous coastline and the green islands, the wind is rarely blowing hard and the coast offers many little coves that are only accessible by boat.
The Ionian Sea gave its name to the Ionian Islands. This archipelago, located north-west of the Peloponnese and south-west of Albania, is composed of 7 principal islands.
The Ionian Sea’s particularity is the Corinth canal. This canal, artificially built through the Isthmus of Corinth, connects the Gulf of Corinth to the Saronic Gulf. Thanks to this canal, you could find yourself at the heart of the Aegean Sea in just 6 kilometres.
Sailing conditions are ideal in the Ionian Sea; they do not present any particular difficulties thanks to stable, predictable wind conditions. From May through to September, force 2 to 5 northwesterly - westerly winds are blowing. A regular wind called the Maestro comes up early afternoon and dies at the end of the day. The region is mainly subject to thermal breezes during the summer. In spring and autumn, the wind is weaker and generally blows from the southwest. In winter, the northeast humid Sirocco wind, also called “Graigos”, can blow hard but it rarely lasts more than two or three days.
