Three of the largest and most important places where we can find yachts are; Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (Known as the Venice of America because of its extensive and intricate channel system), Antibes, France (located in the Alpes-Maritimes department, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, right next door Of Cannes) or the Canary Islands, among many others. However, just by being there you may not find your position, you have to be at the right time of the year, move around the area and have a bit of luck.
For Ft.Lauderdale, April, May and June are the most ideal months. During this time, countless yachts make the crossing of the Mediterranean in order to avoid the hurricane season and enjoy the European summer.
In Antibes, September, October and November are the best months. The yachts are set to leave destination to the Caribbean, to avoid cold European winter, this is when the captains are looking for replacement crew.
Canary Islands, is another place where a large number of boats leave in the dates of the Alisios winds, where most of the ships of Europe stop before heading to the American continent. Being present during those dates in the ports of the Spanish Islands, will give you advantage over other sailors.
