The waters are also generally calm during this time, making it a good time for novice sailors or those who prefer more relaxed sailing conditions.
  • In the shoulder seasons (April to May and October to November), the weather is generally mild and the waters are still relatively calm. However, there is a higher risk of windy conditions and thunderstorms, particularly in the autumn months.
  • During the winter months (December to March), the weather can be cool and wet, with temperatures averaging in the mid-50s Fahrenheit (about 13°C). The waters are also generally choppier during this time, so it may not be the best time for sailing, particularly for inexperienced sailors.
