RYA sailing courses in Greece
Aeolian Village: consistent off-shore breezes that build to a force 2-5 in the afternoon.
Buca: typical wind strengths of 3-4, picking up around midday. The breeze tends to be on-shore, but can be cross-shore when it’s windier.
Messini: on-shore breezes of around 3-4 on most days, swinging to a cross-on-shore when the wind picks up. Head out in June, July, or August for the most consistency.
Portomyrina Palace: the beachclub for early risers, with the best breeze sweeping the big bay in the mornings. If you’re just starting, wait until the afternoon to get out sailing.
Retreat: a sheltered bay with very little chop, wind conditions stick around force 1-2 all season, so this is an ideal place to learn from scratch.
Vounaki: calm waters abound at Vounaki. Breezes start off light and build throughout the day to a force 3-4 in the afternoon. A great place for intermediates to progress.
