Med mooring

If you’ve never sailed in Greece, Spain and other Mediterranean destinations you may not have come across Mediterranean mooring or Med mooring as it’s often called.

Sounds easy…well throw in tiny quaint harbors with fishing boats and wind on the beam and it can be a bit trickier! To help you out, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide. Expertly written by our Charter Director Steven Parry, Steven gives you the benefit of his 20 years’ experience of sailing in Greece. The guide will give you an insight into every possible Med mooring situation and top tips of how to overcome problems quickly. It’s great bedtime reading in advance of your first Med mooring experience! Read the guide to Med mooring.
