What’s wrong with the good old North Sea, Holland, Belgium, Germany, etc.?
Winter here in the Med is warmer than most summers in Germany.
The north sea is not only cold / wet / windy but often there is not even water
around because of the tides.
The med has certainly nicer weather
. On average that is, we have experienced some very severe thunderstorms just off the coast recently with winds up to F 11 and gusts touching F12.
Today we have been lifted out for winter storage
in Marina di ragusa / Sicilly and are currently preparing everything for the winter.
I guess you have seen plenty of pictures and youtube videos of Mahes but if there is any special area you want a photo
of let me know.
One suggestion: the FP dealer in Germany may know a Mahe that is still in the area.
