Winds in the South of France are generally light and the sailing conditions ideal for all levels of sailors. The “Tramontane“ blows from the Pyrenees to Sète, and “the Mistral” blows down from Vallée du Rhône and may even reach as far as Corsica and Sardinia. During summer the prevailing south and southeast winds do not exceed 15- 20 knots. In the rare case that the Mistral wind gets stronger, it doesn't last longer than 2-3 days.
A must-see on any Cote d’Azur cruise is the Iles d’ Or.
When sailing west of Toulon, please take the strong swell from the south, southwest into consideration. This phenomenon is weaker east of Toulon.
