If cruising to the Med is on your voyage plan for this summer, take a look at our collection of useful planning links to articles and resources on Noonsite and elsewhere on the web.

While this article from Sailing Britican dates from 2016, the points it covers are still relevant for yachts heading from the Caribbean to the Med: 25 Differences - Caribbean or the Mediterranean.

Time spent cruising in the Med can often be limited, whether it's because of work, school, or Schengen zone requirements. However, three months of sailing in Europe can make for a summer to remember with some careful planning. With literally hundreds of scenarios to choose from, this article by Yachting World outlines a selection of possible 90-day itineraries.

More reports by cruisers coping with the Schengen Shuffle can be found on Noonsite and don't miss our detailed EU page covering all the rules for cruising in Europe.

Although Noonsite is mainly concerned with coastal ports, we believe a summary of information about the network of inland waterways in Europe is a useful addition to our cruising information. Many cruisers choose to travel from coast to coast via the canal network or take some time out on the calmer waters on the inland waterways. This report provides a brief overview of Europe's Inland Waterways.

Greece's Corinth Canal will re-open on May 1, 2024 linking the Saronic Gulf and the Gulf of Corinth as a popular short-cut for yachts. The Canal is returning to normal operations following 3 years of extensive rehabilitation works to repair the canal after severe landslides in 2021.
