The wind and sea

The weather in Southeast Asian charter regions is generally sunny, dry and the seas calm. The wet monsoon season is May to October and can bring tropical showers.

Phuket, Thailand: Protected by the waters of Phang-Nga Bay in the Andaman Sea, Phuket is a year round sailing destination. From November to April expect stable northeasterly winds ranging from 5-20mph. The southwest monsoon season runs from May to October where winds are stronger and you can encounter occasional squalls that last for about 10 to 30 minutes. A one-meter short chop is the typical wave height, but three to five-meter swells can develop during the monsoon season. The tidal range is 2-3 meters.


In Thailand there are many well-organized marinas offering berths and services ashore for yachtsman. There are also thousands of anchorages. In order to protect the marine environment from anchors, in some areas there are mooring balls provided by the local authorities designed for different sized yachts. Sailors can tie off to the mooring ball and often they are free.

Southeast Asia operates under region A of the international navigational system - red right leaving.
