During the summer, the winds are often weak. On the French Riviera, the mistral (northwest wind) coming down from the Rhone valley remains occasional and more calm to Saint Raphael. Easterly winds are clearly dominant all year. At these prevailing winds, we can add the wind named Le Ponant, a southwest wind that is particularly sensitive in the bay of Saint Raphael.
