In Portugal, sailing conditions are generally good with trade winds of up to 20 knots blowing more than 300 days of the year. Twice-a-day tides range roughly three meters. Expect southerly currents in summertime and northerly currents during winter months. Heavy swells are known to shut down smaller ports, especially along the country's rugged northern coast.
