What season is prime sailing season ? Like the summer doldrums?
June to August here on the northern shores of Lake Superior
. May to September is the typical season, although some tougher than me push things even further.
As other have also said, it often comes down to circumstances and attitude. As a sailor, I try very hard to structure cruises so I have no where that I must go, and give myself as much time as possible do get there. It's not always possible, but a lot of it comes down to attitude.
