Wind and sea
The wind here has characteristics ranging from constant to gusty and from sideshore to variable, with maximum peaks of 40 knots and with directions from North East, West and South West. High waves, on the other hand, have a frequency of 60 days a year.
The coast in Albenga, up to the mouth of the Centa river, faces east. The north wind enters rather gusty, and not always very enjoyable, due to the disturbing effect which, however, the mountains of the hinterland cause. Moreover, the north wind, here, enters side, side off, and it is good to be careful, because it can push offshore, without headlands or leaders that can hold you back (except Gallinara Island). With the north wind, the sea remains almost flat, except for a messy and unpredictable chop.
