The Climate

365 days of sunshine(not literally, but in spirit!)

warm all year round

The climate of the Canary Islands is unique, special: The best climate in the world.

In the Canary Islands the summers are pleasant and the winters are mild – an eternal spring of sunny days, blue skies and constant temperatures, which vary little throughout the year.

The secret of this unique feeling of comfort awarded by the climate can be found in the cooling trade winds, the Gulf Stream, which bathes its coasts and the warm influence of the Azores anticyclone in winter. These factors benefit the islands due to their exceptional geographical position, in an area of transition and contact between high pressure and winds blowing from the west.

Yearly Climate Conditions in Gran Canaria

In winter, we enjoy all kinds of winds, alternating gentle breeze days, with days of strong wind and waves. We can make long days of sailing, even in double sessions, since we lit until 18:00 h. It has been much discussed by some international coaches the similarity of our internal navigation area, used for training, with what we will find in Rio 2016, light winds and flat water. Despite being in winter, the days teams are not able to train are very rare.
