Keep an eye on wind and wave directions
One often refers to the “confused Seas of the Mediterranean” and sailors often complain that the wind is in the wrong direction “with waves coming from everywhere”. Currents are thought to be light or non-existent and in reality, the Mediterranean does have very strong currents which depend on tidal flows at the straits of Gibraltar. The Mediterranean is classified as non-tidal however it is not a lake and you should follow wind and wave directions very carefully. Often consulting too many weather sites makes decision-making more difficult. We recommend using Consorzio LaMMA for all round Mediterranean Wind and Sea conditions.
