The climate in Greece:
With a yacht hire Greece, you can sail from May and find already mild temperatures that revolve around 20 C. The highest temperatures are recorded in July and August, they easily reach 30 C during the day.
Athens can be quite difficult to bear in August when temperatures rise dramatically and tourism is at its peak. Having a boat waiting for you at sea will certainly help you make your stay a lot more enjoyable.
If you sail during the peak period, the main wind to know is the Meltemi. This northern wind begins to blow in June / July and reaches its maximum intensity in August. In some areas like the Cyclades, the wind can be stronger because of the lack of coastlines to protect the archipelagos.
Unless you are a seasoned navigator, we usually recommend sailing with a professional skipper. Not only will you have less to worry about the weather and the winds, but you will be able to enjoy the sight and the navigation in all tranquility. Having a skipper is also the best way to learn more about navigation and may be the perfect option for young sailors looking to improve.
