As one of the world’s most gorgeous destinations, the Cyclades has to be one of the top sailing areas of today.  However, it isn’t difficult to see why more people look at the Cyclades and it certainly offers a lot of quality no matter when you visit.  If you want to make the vacation more special then why not rent a boat in the Cyclades?

When Is The Best Time To Sail?

July and August can usually be the peak times for sailing however; if you want to enjoy the Cyclades then you may be best setting sail slightly early or leaving it a little later.  Now, during the months of July and August, there are some mid to heavy breezes coming from the North which can be a little more challenging.  However, if you don’t mind a challenge and have a lot of experience sailing then this could be fine for you. 

Though, for those who don’t plan to take on the rough seas, they may be best suited heading out in October or early June.  These are fairly good times and probably the months which are going to suit most.  However, the best time to sail really comes down to what you feel most comfortable with and whether or not you plan to hire a crew.

Now, hiring a crew can be really good if you don’t have a lot of sailing experience or if you don’t feel comfortable sailing in waters you don’t know.  Usually when you rent a boat in the Cyclades you can get the option to hire a crew or skipper depending on the exact type of boat you plan to rent.  If you don’t want to hire a skipper then that is your choice of course.

Usually, if you don’t have a crew on board then you are going to require a special boating license.  The license really gives you the power to move the boat from its mooring spot and sail in the open waters.  This is something you shouldn’t have too much trouble with if you have some experience.  You can rent a boat in the Cyclades and it shouldn’t be too troublesome either.

What Does It Feel Like When Sailing?

Sailing is quite unusual in many instances.  When you see a boat from land, you don’t get the rush of excitement when you are actually standing on deck feeling that sea breeze.  However, when you experience that you are going to absolutely love sailing. 

Though, in some circumstances sailing is hard to describe.  There are times when you feel as though you’re floating on a cloud and other times you feel overjoyed.  The truth is that sailing can be completely different from one person to the next and that is special.  However, when you rent a boat in the Cyclades you are going to be able to enjoy everything from the scenery to the fun water activities. 

With so much to enjoy you can rent a boat in the Cyclades and love the feeling of sailing.
