Syros Yacht Charter

The Island of Syros, also known as Syra and Siros, lies in the central region of the Cyclades in Greece. Being part of this island complex, the island terrain is generally barren and hilly, as with other islands that are located within the Aegean Sea. Syros is also the capital of the island cluster and considered by superyacht sailors and other yacht charter enthusiast as an important destination for those spending their Greece Yacht Charter vacations in the Mediterranean.

The island’s main port, Ermoupolis, is also its capital. It is a charming town that is organized in a concentric manner, which was established around the sites where we can find old buildings and structures that bear strong neoclassical and Venetian influence. Just like with the other popular island destinations in the region, Syros is home to several quaint villages, most of which are found along the coastline.

The prevailing climate in the Island of Syros is generally hot and dry during the months of summer, which is incidentally the time where the most number of tourists and yacht charter enthusiasts visit the island, and generally wet and moderate during the months of winter. Prevailing winds within the region is relatively stable and moderate, an ideal condition for sailing, especially for beginners.

However, the intensity of prevailing winds may become strong during the summer months, which is characterized by meltemi, where the wind blows from the north side at a force of about 3 to 5. This is something that sailing yachts as well as luxury motor yachts should be aware of when considering a yacht charter vacation in this area of Greece. However, there may be short episodes during summer where the wind intensity can go as high as 7 on the Beaufort scale.
