Weather and data on winds: the basics


Warm weather in Greece begins mid-April and cools late October. There is warm weather spells throughout the winter but you are not in the Tropics! Temperature varies from 20 degrees Celcius to 30 degrees Celcius(65-85 F)in July(Athens is usually hotter because of the "urban heat island"). Humidity is low and this makes sailing extremely pleasant.
Winds during the summer vary in direction and are between 2 to 5 Beauforts with the period of the meltemi winds being an exception. Meltemi is strong during mid-July to mid-August and winds can reach forces of 6-7 BF.
