Spain, the space of merging of so many various nations and cultures, is the perfect location for embarking on a sailing adventure.

However, most of the Iberian peninsula gets extremely hot during mid-summer, in July and August, so the most comfortable and least exhausting way to explore the country would be by sailing.
