Sailing Conditions

General Conditions

The waters of the Saronic Gulf are well-protected and flat, while the Aegean and the seas around the Cyclades generally have more wind.  During the cruising season of April to October, the skies are blue and the weather warm, with water temperatures averaging 27ºC (80ºF). In midsummer, you can expect long evenings, spectacular sunsets and calm seas. The Meltemi wind, varying from 15 to 40 knots (17 – 46 Mph), and blowing variously north-east, north and north-west, begins in May and reaches its peak in July, slowing down in September.

The tidal range is generally between 30 - 60 cms (1 - 2 feet), making tidal currents practically non-existent.

Mooring: Mainly stern to and using lazy lines, anchoring or buoys.
