Sailors Tips /

Thailand : Phuket International Airport There are direct flights into Phuket International Airport (HKT). It takes approximately 20mins via Taxi to get to the Marina. Taxis are readily available outside the airport and will cost between 800 to 1200 Thai Baht. Renting a car? Renting a car? Great! Drives on the left. Dont Miss: For those making their first visit to the East, this is an experience in itself, unlike any restaurant in the West: plenty of fish, seafood, spices, holy basil, coconut milk, lime, coriander, curry and of course, jasmine rice grown in Thailand. Thai cuisine is rich in vegetables; papaya salad is one of the most famous. All foods are very spicy. Try a Thai Cooking Course - there are a large number of 3-6 hour courses to learn the principles of Thai cuisine from the knowledge of spices through the products themselves, an experience that we highly recommend.

First stop on crowded Ipsos, head on to Agni for more peace and quiet. Second stop in beautiful Agni, and on to the amazing Kalami, for great food in the Taverna and siesta.Dangers Care is needed. Close attention to the section between the mainland and the town of Gaios, because there is a reef.⚓Mallorca : Donia App First thing you should do, when sailing around the Balearic Islands, is to download the Donia App, there are lots of reserved areas.⚓Balearic Islands Spain : Winds Most frequently blow from the west, northwest, N and E but are considerably altered bt the effects of local topography. Close to the coast normal sea and land breezes are experienced on calm days. Tramontana (Northwest) Strong, dry wind, cold during the winter time; can be dangerous due to reaching gale force in a very short period of time, even on sunny days with apparently no warning sign; Vendaval (West) Usually confined to the south and southeast coast, can occasionally blow in the northeast; prevails from late autumn to early spring, but usually short-lived; Levante (East) Generally lasting between three or four days, this wind is preceded by a heavy swell, lack of visibility, cold damp air and low clouds; Sirocco (South) This humid, hot wind usually carries dust, with haze and clouds; more frequent during the summer, could last around one or two days. Along the costa Brava, NW N or NE winds are most common, especially in winter, though winds from other directions frequently occur. Swell Rarely reaching ocean swell sizes, it can affect the Balearic from any difections, in particular the cala anchorages.⚓Cyclades islands : Meltemi wind Meltemi wind dominates these islands, in particular from July until September.⚓Azores, Portugal : Sailing route It is best to sail from Faial or Pico in the central part of the archipelago, where there are the most islands in reasonable proximity to each other.  Charters To charter a boat in the Azores, you need a fair amount of experience, as the sailing can be challenging, ranging from simple coastal hops to true ocean passages in sometimes strong weather. Bookings Sailing in Portuguese waters you are expected to book in and out of every harbour you visit, which isn’t quite as difficult as it sounds. You can usually book out of ports the day before you actually leave; also, because officials see the SailAzores charter boats all the time, they do seem willing to cut them some slack
