The Cyclades waters are however quite advanced and although there are no tidal currents to speak off, the Meltemi storms together with the frequent gusts from the mountainous islands. Fortunately the weather is very well forecast and the local gusts are also very predictable due to the orographic nature of the area.
Recently also other islands have become - albeit minor - yacht charter bases and many reliable yacht charter firms and rental businesses have found a base at Mykonos and more surprisingly Santorini, which is great for both the average bareboat sailing tourist but also for the abundant superyachts, motoryachts and gulet motor sailers (motorsailers). There are excellent one-way routes in the Aegean Sea out of Athens as well. Contrary to the Ionian there aren't many flotillas.
