The Weather

We'll been in Italy now since April the 13th and in that time until now the Italian summer has not come the weather has been appalling and in that period it has rained for min 2days every week except from the 3/6 to 15/6 we had no rain .
But have had a lot of high winds here about 75% from the west .

The remainder from the sth sth east which has resulted in big seas the biggest we encountered was 4 to 5 meters but with these high seas and the usual high winds around the 27 knt mark average even after wind dies down for a few days the sea waves have remained high around 2 to 3 meters and have noticed it takes at least 2 days for the seas to clam down slightly.

And it has been a funny experience for me just trying to make the right call as I have spent past 20 yrs sailing in Greece I got use to wind and sea patterns so could always make reasonable judgment . But here have been caught out 3 times .

So what's it been like for you where ever you are in the med
