Now is the time of year to plan your summer holiday. The Euro is at an all-time low. Being on the water anywhere is cooler. Yacht selection is at its best.
Closer to the Water is Cooler
Why do water and land, both receiving the same amount of heat energy, not respond in the same way with respect to heat? Scientifically speaking, Continentality is what is going on. Looking at the Marine Traffic Chart below, North America and the rest of the world have water-dominated climates. Because of the proximity to water, such climates will experience cooler summers.
Ideal Times to Charter
If you live near the water…you are lucky. However, if you live inland, you will feel the heat and may be inclined to seek reprieve during the months of June to September
The sailing season dates for popular destinations, according to an article on Improve Sailing are as follows:
- The Caribbean: midwinter and early summer (December – January or March – June)
- The Mediterranean: April – October, although the winter is fine as well
- New England: May – July
- Sea of Cortez: May – October
- Australia: May – October
- UK: throughout the year
- South Pacific: mostly May – October
