Yacht in Mumbai - Weather Conditons
Weather plays the most important role in your overall sailing experience. This includes the wind speed, sea state and temperature.
As sailing yachts are mainly powered by wind, wind speed is most important of all and then the sea state. However, predicting the accurate wind speed and sea state well in advance is not always possible.
This leaves us with the choice of selecting the correct time slot for a satisfying sailing experience. Below is the list of time slots recommended with the highest possibility of a good sailing experience.
The most preferred time slots for sailing in Mumbai are 7-9 am, 4-6 pm and 6-8 pm. The weather is usually pleasant during these slots with the best wind conditions. And even if the wind speed it less the overall experience is still good as the sun is not very harsh during these slots.
The second most preferred slots are 9-11 am and 2-4 pm. It is usually sunny during these time slots. However, if the wind speed is sufficient, the overall sailing experience is still good.
Any time between 11 am to 2 pm. We do not recommend sailing in Mumbai between 11:00 am to 2:00 pm as there is very little to almost no wind during this time of the day.
Sunrise Sailing in Mumbai
