Sailing to the Greek Seas is... Precious

 

The Sporades Islands

Off the eastern coast of Mainland Greece is the island of Evia and the cluster of Alonissos, Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros, otherwise known as the Sporades Islands.

The Sporades Islands are ideal for sailing, since the region is one of the most sailed areas in Greece and has been since ancient times, when Jason the Argonaut began their quest for the Golden Fleece from Volos, when the islands were used as stopovers for trips to Turkey and the Middle East.

The Meltemi wind blows in the Sporades from NE, beginning in June, strengthening in July and August and dissipating in September and October. At its strongest, it can reach 6-7 Beaufort. In spring, northern and southern winds can also be expected. While sailing through the Straits of Orei and Trikeri, you should be aware of the E and ENE winds that blow up the channels. A strong NW wind can also be expected in the Pagasitikos Gulf.
The Sporades Islands have always been a fishing area, so be careful of fishing nets and small fishing boats in the region, particularly if you plan to sail after sunset.
