Weather: Corsica enjoys a privileged climate on all its coasts and into the heart of its many valleys. It is marked by hot, dry summers and a remarkable annual tae of sunshine hours. Corsica is subject to a strong maritime influence that reduces large temperature differences, with sea breezes cooling the atmosphere along the coast. By mid-May, the temperature in the water reaches 18 °C and during the summer season it often exceeds 25 °C

Sailing Conditions: The best months of the year to sail in Corsica are June, July and August. Temperatures are high but the fresh breezes soften the atmosphere. Summer is the best season for yacht rental.
