Not only the Turkish Aegean, but also the Turkish Riviera is characterized by the typical Mediterranean climate. Due to the climatic conditions, a yacht charter in Turkey is possible from April.
When sailing around Turkey you can usually count on reliable and constant weather. The Turkish Aegean offers ideal weather conditions for a long sailing and cruising season, because the Mediterranean climate ensures pleasant temperatures already in spring. The sailing season begins in April and continues until the end of October or November. Summers are long, sometimes very hot and there is little rainfall. Most of the time it is sunny at temperatures between 27 and 33 degrees. The weather is ideal for a yacht charter with a motor yacht, a sailboat, a catamaran or a traditional gulet, because the best way to enjoy the summer is on the water. The good weather lasts well into autumn and even in November it is still possible to swim, because the water temperature is still around 20 degrees. Nevertheless you should not save on warm clothes if your head north worth during early summer or late autumn. The winter months are pleasantly mild with average temperatures of 12 to 17 degrees.
Wind conditions: The prevailing summer winds (meltems) along the Turkish coast from mid-June to mid-September blow almost exclusively from northerly directions. Near to the mainland, high mountains, islands and deep cuts create different local wind conditions. In spring and autumn you have to be reckoned with dangerous Southeast Wind (Lodos).
