How do we react on bad weather?
If you are bareboat reef your sails and search for shelter (port, marina, bay etc.). Do not let your crew leave the cockpit and avoid
sailing at night. If you sail with a skipper, he or she will decide the best for the crew’s safety.
It is my first time and I do not know if I get seasick.
Not everybody gets sick but some people are more sensitive. If you are one of them, first of all, do not panic. It is not going to last forever and ruin your wonderful holidays, only when there is swell. If so, take a specific chewing gum to avoid sickness as long as you do not feel good. You can find them at the pharmacy. It takes 10 minutes to react. One important rule: Do not go inside the boat! Try to avoid eating liquids and prefer dry food such as biscuits. And one last tip: look ahead, as far as you can.
Wherefrom can I get daily informed about the weather?
Here are some useful local forecast sites in Greece. Poseidon – Meteo
Can I wash my clothes on board?
If you rent a sailing yacht you can wash them in the laundry at the port (not in all the ports). If you rent a catamaran, there may be a
