Tides and weather forecast sources
There are almost no tides in the Adriatic Sea. Their average height is half a meter. During strong winds, the height of the waves rises to one and a half meters. The winds of the Adriatic Sea often change directions. They are fickle. Summer calm can be replaced by a storm or a strong wind from the north.
The north-east wind is called borea. The southeast wind is called sirocco. These two winds are dangerous for sailors. Wind from the southwest is less frequent and not so long. It can go to the southeast. In most cases, this results in a severe storm and prolonged deterioration of the weather.
There are bays, narrow canals on the east coast of the country. There are winds much more dangerous than in open spaces. You can run aground or break on coastal cliffs.
After arriving in the marina, the yachtsman can get a daily weather forecast. Also, the weather forecast can be found by the MMSI number — an analog of a phone number, only for radio stations. Consists of 9 digits. The first three are the code of the country under the flag of which the yacht is registered. The remaining six are the numbers assigned to your yacht. Montenegro's code is 262.
