Information about greece

Hi all!!

We aer going to sail in greece next august and we would like to contact with people who has sailed there any time. We have a little fear about meltemi because some people tell us is a very difficult wind for siling in the Cyclades so we will apreciate so much everything about saling in greece that you can tell us..about weather, harbours.. just everything..

Thanks in advance.

Information about greece

There is minimal information right in this forum, see topic: Cyclades Mediterranean Sailing, but if you change and go to the forum "Chartering" there is aplenty. You may also find hints at the following website:
However, be sure that the Aegean, unlike the Carribean, especially during the summer months has unpredictable, gusty, well above force 6 and ever changing wind direction conditions and certainly is not a suitable sailing area for novice yacht or book-learning sailors and inexperienced night navigators!
Fair winds (and no gusts) to everybody

We've done 3 summers in Agean waters. Yes, the Meltimi can blow hard but Navtex operates quite dependably from Limnos (north Agean) and Crete in the south. There are also Greek reports on VHF. (So far I've gotten along without them). This is day sailing, the islands are close together and if something unforecasted occurred there would be harbors to duck into. This area is the best of the Med except for the Turkish coast right next door. Good luck and good sailing.
