December 27, 2023

To many it may seem as though summer is a lifetime away. The weather is cold, the days are short and the only time you are sailing is in your daydreams. However, this is a great time to get a head start on planning your summer holidays! And while there are so many great destinations available, there are few places as idyllic as the Mediterranean. So, if you are someone that likes to plan ahead, or you just need something to look forward to during the cold winter months, here is a list of all the top spots in the Mediterranean where you can sail an RS boat. Happy planning!
