Weather Conditions for Charter Sailing in Turkey

Yacht Charter Turkey


Turkish Mediterranean Seasons & Climate

Turkey's climate is similar to that of other areas in the eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea. Weather is mild to warm and conditions are very favorable for long and delightful sailing days. The sun shines for 300+ days a year in the seas around Turkey.

The “Meltemi winds” are hot and dry northerly winds that blow in the Aegean from mid-May to mid-September. Meltemi winds can arrive without warning and persist for days, though they often swell in the afternoon and die down each night. These winds typically provide good and steady sailing for the region, although they can be quite severe for short periods.

Navigare Yachting offers charter yacht Turkey and yacht rental Turkey services from the end of March through the end of November:
