The winds of Stagnone
Stagnone is considered one of the windiest spots in Italy. Here the wind blows with an average of 300 days a year. There is a difference between other places overlooking the sea where it is possible to go kite only with the winds onshore. In this lagoon, you can kitesurf with any type of wind. All-year-round winds alternate from the North, NW, West, SE, SW.
The Tramontana and the Scirocco are the most frequent. In particular, the winds from the North predominate the summer. The Tramontana shows up punctually, almost every day, late morning. In the early afternoon, thanks to the thermal component, it increases in intensity. It then continues until sunset, giving you endless sessions.
The other great protagonist is Scirocco. It is more frequent in the colder months, but it does so in a decisive and disruptive way when it enters. It can also reach 35-40 knots. It is impossible to ignore it because it raises the water level of the Stagnone.
Another wind that undergoes a slight thermal increase is the Libeccio.
And if Grecale blows? Don’t worry, you will find the flat and the turquoise waters of Marausa just 6 km away. This way, you can continue with your training without interruption.
The climate in the Stagnone Lagoon
The meteorological conditions of the Stagnone Lagoon represent another strong point of this spot. This corner of Sicily enjoys mild temperatures for most of the year, thanks to its proximity to the African continent. The warm season arrives early and lasts until the beginning of winter.
The mid-seasons hardly exist.
In Stagnone, it is possible to wear summer clothing even in November or spring outfits in December. This microclimate makes it the perfect place for kitesurfing from March to the end of November. When the outside temperature starts to warm up, the water does the same. In the warmer months, you can leave any neoprene layer at home.
At this time of the year, you can kite in a swimsuit or with a Lycra to shelter from the sun’s rays, which from May to September can be really intense. A 4/3 over knee wetsuit will be enough to train in early spring and as you get closer to winter.
The months of January and February can be rather cold, especially regarding the water temperature. Often a few days with peaks of 18-20 degrees also occurs in this period. Beyond the actual temperatures, the type of wind blowing on the lagoon and its direction determine the perception of heat and cold.
