Also be aware that if you like to sail the med has a justifiable reputation of either having too little wind or too much.

The trades are reliable in the Carib.

France can be a very low cost country if you stop eating and drinking like a tourist. I had a 8 m boat there two years ago in nice. I was paying 8-12 euros for a night in the cote D'Azure marinas . Of course it climbed up when you went over 8m

Spain is quite reasonable as as many parts of Italy.

I found by comparison Croatia to be crazy expensive as everyone is out to charge tourists for everything.

I mean when you can sit in a little bistro in Cannes and have lunch and a glass of wine for €12 euros, that's cheap. I mean Micky D is dearer
