  • [01] Seasonal winds in Aegean ideal for windsurfers

  • [01] Seasonal winds in Aegean ideal for windsurfers

    The gusty seasonal northern winds known as "meltemia", a weather phenomenon that mostly occurs in the late summer in the Aegean, generated near gale-force winds on Sunday, delaying ferry routes to some island destinations and kicking up waves and sand on beaches from northern Greece to Crete. For windsurfers, however, the meltemia -- or meltemi in the singular -- mean ideal conditions for the water sport. Greek Olympic gold and silver medallist Nikos Kaklaman akis, in the picture, rises above the waves on Sunday, Aug. 21, 2001, off the Loutsa coast in east Attica prefecture, east of Athens proper.
