Lake Malawi provides ideal sailing conditions, with no tides or currents, and a fairly consistent south-easterly wind from February to October. This wind, known locally as the "Mwera", is strongest from August to September, and is replaced by a stronger, but less predictable northerly, the "Mpoto", between November and January. The calmest months are December to March but rough, windy weather can occur unexpectedly at any time. Sailing boats and dinghies are available for hire at selected Lodges and hotels.
The major event of the year, with quite an international following, is the challenging Lake Malawi Yacht Marathon, an eight-day, 560km race taking place in July.
