When to Sail in Greece?
The sailing season in Greece starts early April and lasts to November. The high sailing season, however, is from the last week of July to the first week of September. During that time, some areas might be a bit crowded, but everything will be open and there will be a larger choice of sailing boats. The temperatures will be high, but the meltemi sailing wind will also blow in the Aegean. Of course, prices are more reasonable during April, May or June. In that time, the water temperature will be pleasant enough for swimming. September is perhaps the most favorable time for sailing, not only because the prices are lower, but also because there are smaller crowds and the time is ideal for snorkeling and diving, as the weather conditions are still nice.
