Sailing conditions are excellent and navigation straightforward. Mild winds, sunny weather and minimal strong currents and tides virtually guarantee a great sailing holiday. The prevailing winds are the friendly Maestral from the North West, the Bora from the North East, and Sirocco and Jugo winds from the South/South East. Care should be taken with the Bora as it can be gusty and sudden. Some of the best Mediterranean sailing there is.
