Weather forecast is an important factor for sailing , in order to enjoy relaxed sailing holidays and ensure safety on board and comfort for you and the crew during your journey. Not so much the temperature and how sunny will be but the wind strength , direction and wave height.
Smaller boats can sail with very little wind and charter boats have the advantage of the engine when there is no wind at all. Both types are dependent on the direction of the wind and wave height for choosing the direction they can sail and what speed they will go. Therefore it is very important to know the weather conditions while you are planning your route and before you embark on a sailing trip.
