When the summer ends, and with the arrival of the cold, the planes tend to focus more on enjoying the mountains, the snow, or even stay at home, rather than sailing. However, in Spain and the Mediterranean we are very lucky to be able to enjoy the sea all year round, since we do not suffer as much from storms and extreme temperatures as other northern countries do.

As a consequence, winter navigation is a good option for sea lovers, and for all those who are used to renting boats. Now it´s a really good moment for boat charter

Advantages of sailing in autumn and winter:

Winter navigation can provide us with really pleasant moments, with great added attractions such as anchoring alone in coves normally crowded with boats, clearly observing the seabed thanks to the crystal clear waters without the need to dive, or simply sailing aimlessly and without hurry, warmly dressed and enjoying our wonderful coasts.

The great offers and discounts and in general the lowest rental prices allow you to enjoy very new and spacious boats in a very affordable way. Also, it is possible to rent boats for day trips or for weekends a more complicated matter in summer, since most of the boats are rented for full weeks.

This allows, in addition to enjoying the sea, to gain experience sailing and add hours of sailing to the nautical curriculum. Autumn and winter are the perfect times to practice leisurely sailing and learn about weather conditions

Points to consider:

On these types of dates, when temperatures are low, it is essential to prepare and protect yourself. The most important thing is to protect your head from the cold, with a technical or wool hat. You also have to cover your hands and feet properly if you don’t want to lose sensitivity due to the cold. And for the rest of the body, there is a wide variety of technical or sports clothing with water resistance on the market. At certain temperatures, covering yourself with water is just as important as covering yourself with the cold. In this sense, it is also convenient to carry some dry spare clothes on board, which will help in case we get wet, for example, our feet.

Drinking hot drinks and cold foods that give us the right dose of energy is also essential.Another tip not to forget is to secure electronics and communication before leaving. Check the proper functioning of the radio, check the charge of the mobile phone and of course, check the weather forecast, always checking that no showers or storms are expected. o It is also important to inform someone on land of our navigation plans, route, time of arrival at the destination, etc.
