The sailing season typically runs from May to September. Summer is ideally the best time to sail with peak months, July and August, reeling in sunseekers in need of vitamin D and sea air. Spring features occasional showers with temperatures varying from 22°C to 28°C and summer temperatures can peak 30°C. Spring and Autumn can be great seasons for avoiding the mass tourism and finding more seclusion and retreat, albeit with cooler temperatures. During high season, the wind is usually force 3 - 4 blowing in a north-westerly direction.
