Kos Yacht Charter Information

Kos is one of the most idyllic and pristine Greek islands. Lying off the coast of Turkey, Kos is the perfect base to begin a sailing or power yacht charter holiday. This island is part of the Dodekanes island group in the Sporades, and offers both spectacular and ancient Greek and Turkish ruins. The northwesterly Meltemi winds are prominent around Kos in the summer they begin blowing in June and start subsiding by September. The Meltemis can receive 7-9 knots in July and August and can blow gales for up to 3 days. If you are sailing around Kos then, it is critical to be aware of these winds. Spring and autumn provide calmer winds and more ideal yacht chartering conditions.
