Sailing Europe – the Top 5 Destinations this Summer

Going on a sailing trip this summer? Luckily, there are plenty of great destinations in this part of the world – if you’re in Europe that is! Here are five of our top picks for sailing Europe.

5. The Greek Islands

This is a very popular destination for renting chartered sail boats, and you will certainly enjoy the warm waters and beautiful views. Sail from Santorini to Mykonos to experience idyllic island scenery and Mediterranean charm. Renting a boat with a few friends can be a good choice if you’re on a budget, and no need to stay in hotels at night.

4. Croatia

Croatia has over 1000 islands in the crystal clear seas of the Adriatic, so plenty of beauty is waiting to be explored. Spend your summer taking in the views from the boat, or explore the many beautiful coastal towns, such as Split, Dubrovnik, or Makarska.

3. Ireland

If warm weather is what you’re looking for, this may not be a safe bet. However, the port of Galway in the west of Ireland is beautiful and offers rich history and character. With an oyster festival and the finale to the prestigious Volvo Ocean Race taking place here every summer, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy.

2. Slovenia

Slovenia offers easy access to the Adriatic Sea, and is becoming a hotspot for yachts. Visit the beautiful Bay of Piran, or the towns of Portorož, Izola or Koper, to explore some beautiful ports and marinas.

1. French Riviera

As MaxSea is a French company, we are slightly biased, but most sailors will agree that the French Riviera is a particularly beautiful spot to visit in Europe!

The French Riviera stretches along the Côte d’Azur, and features an all-star cast of sailing hubs, such as Cannes, Antibes, Saint Tropez and Monaco.

Wherever you end up going this summer, get there safely with MaxSea TimeZero navigation software.
