THE WEATHER
The Pagasitikos Gulf and the Northern Sporades Islands get the 'Meltemi' from the NNE during the summer months and this provides a predictable strong breeze, normally between force 3 & 6 on the Beaufort scale which makes for excellent sailing for all levels. Generally the wind blows from a NNE direction in the Sporades, although the direction can be altered as it channels through the islands. On the lee side of the islands there are flat seas, which combined with wind make for an exhilarating sail. In the spring and the autumn the wind continues to be mainly from the north (NE-NW) but with regular winds from the south with local variations. In the height of summer you can expect average temperatures of 26 degrees, with July and August being the hottest months.

The Port of Loutraki

is the port of Glossa and has its name from the ancint baths (loutra) today found in archaeological site near the shore. marina
Skopelos is a beutiful island, full of forests and thus is considered as one of the greenest islands of the Aegean Sea. It has an excellent infrastructure but at the same time keeps its traditional character. The island has 3 ports: the main Skopelos port, the port of Loutraki and the port of Agnontas. Loutraki is the first port of Skopelos, where the ferries or flying dolphins make a stop at Skiathos, Volos or Agios Konstantinos and then continue to the main port of the island of Skopelos. The main port of Skopelos is actually the major destination of private ships, yachts and sailboats where facilities such as fuel supply, water supply, ice and food are provided. In case you need more information about ferry departures and arrivals from the port of Skopelos you can call at (+30 24240) 22180.
