Wind information


BURA  is a dry, very cold northern wind characterised by violent gusts. It blows over the slopes of coastal mountains (Velebit and Biokovo) bringing cold air that – due to its weight accelerates and hits the sea with gale force, causing a lot of troubles, especially to inexperienced sailors because of its strong blows and rapid change of direction. Usually “announced” by thin white clouds (caps) over the summits of coastal mountains, bura leaves you little time to escape or prepare (to reef the sails) before you meat its first stroke. Bura creates very unpleasant short, but considerably high waves with lots of foam and spray.


Jugo is a south-easterly warm Adriatic wind. It blows across the Adriatic when a cyclone develops over the Adriatic area and it brings clouds and rain. It develops slowly and it can usually be noticed two or three days in advance. It usually lasts five to seven days. There is a possibility of the so called dry Jugo, when it blows for a couple of days without bringing rain.


Mistral is a constant mostly thermal Adriatic wind, best beloved by the leisure sailing community. It suddenly collapses around noontime and regenerates soon as a pretty strong westerly to northwesterly wind, depending upon configuration of the coastal range.


Tramontana is a strong northern to northwestern wind generated by passing  the cold frontal over the Adriatic. Of rather short duration, tramontana arrives suddenly and very soon reaches stormy force, causing gales and very rough seas.


Levanat is a cold wind from the East that usually brings clouds and rainfall. Similar to bura it brings low temperatures.   Although good for sailing, due to its force, levanat is not popular in the sailing community because of the cold weather.


Oštro is a rather moderate wind blowing from the South and precedes maestral. Oštro  sometimes keeps blowing all day long, until sunset.


Lebić is a mostly moderate warm and dry  wind of short duration, but generating extremely rough seas and bringing abundant rainfall. Announced by extremely high tides, lebić also causes poor visibility. It is generated by passing of a cyclone eye over the continental part of Croatia and progression of a cold frontal; a deep depression over the north Adriatic causes a strong southwest wind, air pressure fall and unstable cloud.
