Here you will find the fundamental information on the sailing area, weather and a general view on the Dodekan Island World. In the summer months the prevailing wind is the so called ‘Meltemi’ from northwest to west direction, which normally brings good weather. At constantly 4 to 6 Beaufort it brings a pleasantly cooling effect in the mostly hot temperatures. Within longer periods ‘Meltemi’ brings rough seas into the area between Karpathos and Rhodes. It can well be possible that ‘Meltemi’ constantly blows at 5 to 7 Beaufort – without any short break. This stands for ideal conditions for windsurfers. On the other hand in summer we yachtsmen have to face down gusts at the leeward side of the islands. You can find a weather table further down together with the regional information.
