Being based in Britain, we’re well aware that scorching temperatures might not be everyone’s cup of tea, so trying to persuade people that they need to sail in Croatia and Greece at the height of summer can, believe it or not, sometimes be a hard sell.  And with it being high season, charter prices are often quite high, particularly for bigger boats. 

But did you know that average temperatures in Greece and Croatia for September and October are still over 20 degrees and sunny?  And, which is more, because you’re sailing in low season, there are some quite simply amazing deals out there: some charter operators will discount as much as 70% off their high-season prices.  Flights out there are also a fair chunk cheaper now that kids across Europe are back at school.

Sound good?  Stop reading this blog and start searching for a yacht then!  Alternatively, drop us an email or give us a call and we’ll help you find your perfect yacht :)

If you’re still not tempted, did you also know that, as they’re closer to the equator, their days don’t shorten as much as the UK, so you can still enjoy the sunshine into the evening?  And that they actually get better sailing winds in autumn and spring?  And that the marina’s are emptier and easier to park in (and cheaper)?  And that restaurants are less full and offer better service?

There’s so many reasons to go autumn sailing – particularly in the Med, but we have some great low-season offers for England and Scotland too – so think about it!
