Wind and Sailing Conditions
The prevailing wind in the summer is the so called “Meltemi”, which comes from the North. The Meltemi peaks in the middle of July until end of August at force 5-7 and may occasionally reach force 9. During spring and autumn, you may also be facing winds blowing from the south. It is advised that for short charters (e.g. 7 days) the charterer should be aware in advance of the prevailing weather conditions since local winds in summer can reach force 8-9 and last for some days.
You may begin your trip from our bases in Athens, Alimos Marina, or Lavrion (Main Port) which is situated an hour by car from the new Athens International Airport at the southeast coast of Attica.
