Sailing Conditions in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is an idyllic place for beginner sailors to plan a charter vacation. The Adriatic Sea experiences year-round sunshine; warm waters; and strong, persistent northeast trade winds. During the summer season, the seas can reach temperatures of 20°C, or 68°F, which is perfect for afternoon swimming and water excursions. Warm seas can also affect wind patterns favorably for sailors.

Sailors near Dubrovnik can expect winds to fly from the south-west, in the direction of the lands. Forces typically range between Force 3 and Force 6, which provide great conditions for beginners. However, as you venture out into the Adriatic, you may experience more sudden changes in wind speed and force. This can pose a great challenge for experienced skippers.

Best Time to Vacation in Dubrovnik

One of the primary reasons that sailors love to visit Dubrovnik is for its beautiful scenery and historical richness. This city is one of the last of its kind standing in the Mediterranean from medieval times, and still holds relics from the past in its architectural style and natural beauty. While Dubrovnik offers stunning landscapes and modern entertainment year-round, the best time specifically for sailors to visit falls between April to September.

The summer months provide warm and mild temperatures for vacationing in Dubrovnik. While the temperatures from June to August are ideal, the coastal cities in Croatia are especially crowded. 12 Knots recommends booking your charter in late spring or early fall to ensure that you receive both the warm weather and less crowded streets. However, summer can be prime times for advanced sailors who don’t mind the busy waterways and want to enjoy the warmest seas.

Sailing Difficulty Level

The Adriatic Sea is a fantastic place for beginner sailors to experience the joy of sailing. The ideal winds and mild climate offer many pleasurable hours on the water. However, more advanced skippers may venture out of the coastal region to experience stronger Mistral winds. If you’d like to improve your sailing skills before venturing out into the Adriatic, you may wish to attend the 12 Knots sailing school. There are plenty of course options for absolute beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced sailors looking to strengthen their skillset.
