NOR Portoroz Cup v20180909



The most relevant wind data for race area in front of Portorož is the one from oceanographic and meteorological buoy Vida located few miles from the racing area in front of Piran. The wind rose from meteorological buoy indicates that most frequent winds are sea breezes from WSW to NW. The general direction of the sea breeze depends on the general pressure gradient. It varies between WSW to NW. The sea breeze usually starts around 11 am, is the strongest around 2pm and it dies between 6 and 7pm. The strength of the sea breeze is usually from 8 to 14 kts. Land breezes in the morning are generally weak, stronger after the Bora episodes. Stronger gradient winds are expected from two dominant directions. S (SE in the Portorož bay) – jugo (Scirocco in Italian) and mainly from NE (Bora). SE-S winds are normally blowing before the approach of the cold fronts. Sometimes they mix with sea breeze resulting in the sea breeze from SW. Bora is associated with the period after the passage of cold fronts and contrary to the winter and spring months doesn't last for longer periods. The longer episodes with Bora are associated with lows in the N Adriatic but the probability of their appearance is quite low in September. Bora is a katabatic gusty wind and gusts can easily reach more than 30 kts. The North Adriatic Sea is still quite warm in September, the average temperature is around 22 deg. C. Sea can get temporary colder after the intensive Bora episodes, but it regains the normal temperature in a few days.
