In addition to the record-breaking heat wave with temperatures of over 40 degrees Celsius, some severe thunderstorms and storms have already swept across Europe this summer. BAVARIA AG, high specialised insurer for yachts, aircraft and classic cars, therefore advises that the weather before a boat trip should always be carefully checked.
Especially in the week after the last weekend in July, BAVARIA AG received numerous damage reports caused by storms or thunderstorms. A Fairline 68 was hit by a cyclone off Punat, a Beneteau Monte Carlo was hit by lightning in the Upper Adriatic and a Lagoon 47 also affected the weather off Lignano.
Sandra Ahrabian, CEO of BAVARIA AG, always checks the conditions before every trip by app: “I can only recommend every boater to download apps like Weather Pro or Windfinder Pro onto his mobile phone. These services are really very accurate and can save you from unpleasant situations at sea”.
