All the Sailing Routes in Menorca

How to decide which sailing routes in Menorca?  Just two rules!

1°: check the weather.

The rule is very easy: if the wind is blowing from north, go south! And viceversa.

If you sail downwind you will find calm sea, crystal clear water and no jellyfish !!

Check the weather on WEATHER PAGE.

2°: check the distance.

Look at the maps: if you hire a motor boat with cruising speed of 12 knots, it will take 1 hour to get 12 miles (Nm) of distance.

If you are sailing with a classic slow boat with cruising speed of  6 knots, it will take the double of time!
