Climate and Sailing Conditions in Istria
You can rent a boat from spring time through to autumn, depending on your favourite time of year for sailing and climate preference. Summer time temperatures average 25°C to 30°C, whereas spring and autumn are generally cooler. Of course, the advantage here is that there are not so many visitors in comparison to the summer time.
The main winds affecting the sailing area are the mistral, jugo and bora. The bora is the main cause for concern but you need not worry so much during the summer season. The mistral blows in a north-westerly direction, picking up in the afternoons, ideal for your sailing boat rental
and welcomed by sailors. The jugo blows in a south-westerly direction with longer cyclones bringing humidity.
