We have just booked our first ever family sailing holiday right at the beginning of April. We know we are taking our chances with the weather but the holiday was an absolute bargain- less than half the price of the summer holidays, so we are prepared to take the risk to achieve our aim of learning to sail. I'm guessing it will be more pleasant than the Solent, in any case!
Does anyone have any experience of sailing this early in the season? Specifically, I'd like to ask about what sort of clothing to pack in order to be prepared for April in Kefalonia. (I guess I may need to find a specialist sailing forum for a detailed list of what to wear...)
Also, is the sea temperature likely to be bearable for a quick dip wearing a shorty wetsuit (or am I being ridiculously optimistic!?)
Finally, is anyone able to tell me if Lixouri/ Lixouri Marina is likely to have many shops/ bars/ restaurants open at this time of year?
Many thanks for any info.
