Sailing tips in Spain

The Balearic Islands are the perfect place for a beginner skipper to learn the basics of sailing. This is possible due to the low and usually predictable wind during the summer months and the relatively accessible coastline.
There are also large yacht communities where you will feel right at home.
New marinas have been built all along the coast, allowing short trips from one to the next. Comprehensive repair services are available only in the main sailing centers.

Interesting facts about Spain

An excellent geographical location, ideal climate, rich cultural and historical heritage, Mediterranean cuisine and many other attractions have made Spain one of the most popular destinations in the world. Over a hundred marinas and ports are located along the coast of Spain.

From Ibiza, which has become the quintessential party resort for young people around the world, to Mallorca and Menorca, all of Spain’s Mediterranean islands offer the perfect sailing vacation.

Weather in Spain

Typical Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild but stormy winters.

The best time to visit is during the summer months, when the island enjoys up to 11 hours of sunshine per day. Rain is very rare then. The wind is usually breezy, from 1 to 6 knots during the summer months and up to 15 knots in the winter time.

Atlantic coast

The Atlantic coast on the Bay of Biscay is the terrain for demanding sailing. You should be experienced and good at tidal sailing – this area is known for its strong tides and winds. Tourism is not well developed here, so a basic knowledge of Spanish is a must.

The southern Atlantic coast is still subject to tides, so be careful. The city of Cadiz and the surrounding waters are one of the most historically interesting areas on the Spanish coast. Tarifa is one of the windiest places on the planet.
