Yachting in Sicily
Fantastic all year round climate is claimed by Sicilians. In summer you can enjoy daily temperatures in the 30's (70's and 80's Fahrenheit). It does get cooler in the winter but doesn't normally go below 15 Celsius. There are always good wind conditions, with prevailing North-Westerly wind, changing to W or NE occasionally.  Beware of  the sudden changes though which can scare off the less experienced. 

Magic Aeolian Islands:
There are seven amazing islands in this region.  Stromboli is the first one, the one which is towered by the always active volcano. Panarea, with all the magic little islands all around her is further East. Vulcano, with her  its black sand beaches is very attractive due to boiling waters and sulphureous muds. Lipari, the more extended and famous among the islands, offers great view of the Castle surrounded by walls, the Norman Cathedral and the famous Archeologic Museum. Salina with her thick Mediterranean vegetation is very famous for capperi and Malvasia. Filicudi, is full of deep caves while Alicudi wild and isolated.

Airports and how to get to Sicily:
There are two main airports in Sicily in the two main cities - one based in Catania and one based in Palermo. Airlines who fly into Sicily include British Airways, Volareweb, Ryanair, Air One, Alitalia and Air Malta. For detailed info on how to get to Sicily click here, for ferry connections click here.

Sardinia in General
Sicily is a big island (the biggest in the Mediterranean Sea, 25,708 square km's) and It can be recognised by its triangular shape, hence its other name “Trinacria”, from the ancient Greek language meaning “three tips”.

It is mainly mountainous, but it has a few small plains. The biggest one is near Catania (Piana di Catania) and the second biggest near Palermo (Conca d’oro), both famous for the cultivation of citrus (oranges, mandarins, lemons and the like). Sicilian citrus fruits are lovely, very tasty and sweet. They are pricier than Spanish ones on foreign markets but the quality is worth the difference in price. If you buy them in Sicily though, they are really cheap.

The main feature in Sicilian landscape is the Mount Etna an active volcano located in the east side of the island. It is the highest in Europe, with its 3,000 metres. Even if active, there is no reason to be scared by it, because it is of the effusive type. Which means, that it erupts frequently, but the direction of the lava can be foreseen and it won’t explode suddenly like instead for instance the Vesuvio is likely to do. When the lava flows it usually doesn’t cover the villages, in fact there are no buildings above a certain altitude, only woods and countryside. The locals respect the volcano and love it, because it provides a very fertile soil. For this reason, fruits and vegetable grown here are particularly sweet and full of flavour and wine is very strong. Mick Hucknall from Simply Red has a vineyard on the slopes of the Etna, where the soil is particularly fertile, and produces his own wine called Red.

In addition to the main island, Sicily is surrounded by many small islands which are popular holiday destinations for locals and outsiders alike. The archipelagos of the Aeolian Islands, off the north eastern coast of Sicily; the Egadi Island, off the west tip of the main island; the Pelagie Islands, off the south coast, very close to Africa; the small island of Ustica, off the north western coast in front of Palermo, located in the middle of a national marine park.
