How to charter yacht like a pro?
- If you are leading a big group of people, it is best to arrive at your destination a day or two before your embarcation day.
This will help every individual to plan his/her own flight in order to arrive proper and have a chance to get rid of jetlag before embarking your yacht. Remember, most of the time you only have one week of charter and in some cases, some of your guests might even have to leave earlier. You wouldn’t want to miss any of your yachting time with dealing with the draining side-effects of jetlag.
- Check weather forecast with the Captain and your broker before you pack;
Remember that your charter consultant and the Captain are here to help you and to make sure that your experience is unforgettable. It is smart to ask them for the local weather forecast and seasonal averages prior to your trip. Some of the destinations can get quite chilly at night due to season or weather abnormalities. This will help you to be fully prepared. In addition, all yachts are aware of the local circumstances and they will be prepared for intense situations such as tropical rains and meltemi — seasonal local winds blowing northerly during the day time in July and August around the Aegean Sea.
