Aregai Marina

Aregai is a modern, purpose-built marina seven miles E of San Remo and 16 miles SW of Andora in Italy. With nearly 1,000 berths and a 100 T travel hoist, it is a useful base for leaving a yacht for overwintering or for travelling around NW Italy and SE France.

The prevailing winds along the western part of the Ligurian coast during the summer are a SW or SE seabreeze, which rarely gets up much above force 4-5. Along the eastern part of the coast, the winds tend to come more from W or NW and are again usually little more than moderate. While infrequent, gales are not unknown during the spring and early summer and are typically caused by depressions further west in the Golfe du Lion which bring strong N winds as they move further E. In winter, the tramontana, a strong N wind off the Alps, is more frequent, although the libecchio is a strong SW wind that can affect the whole of the Ligurian coast and blow for several days, causing heavy seas.

Sources for weather forecasts:

  • There is a continuous (computerised voice) weather forecast on VHF 68 - first in Italian and then followed with an English translation
  • The same forecast is given in Italian and English on VHF coastal stations following a notification on channel 16
  • Navtex weather forecasts are broadcast from stations at La Garde (Toulon), Roma and Cagliari (Sardinia)

The marina is immediately E of Punta San Stefano, past a series of isolated stone breakwaters protecting the beaches for a mile to the W. The marina itself is protected by an 800 metre-long breakwater. The entrance is at the E end of the breakwater and the marina is entered from ENE.
