    Greek Islands Sailing Weather
    The best time for sailing in the Greek islands is May, June, September, and October. During July
    and August the winds, "meltemia" in Greek, are strong but only last around 4 to 7 days. In the
    Nothern Aegean Sea the winds blow from NE and in the South Aegean Sea (Dodecanese islands)
    blow from NW.
    Due to "meltemia" is best to sail south to the Dodecanese islands from Samos Island during July and
    August. Read more about the weather in the Greek Islands.
