Lanzarote Weather, July 2014

July is normally the windiest month in Lanzarote, followed by August but it wasn’t windy enough this year for the European freestyle pro tour windsurfing competition, where the organisers had to resort to a tow-in during the 4 day event in Costa Teguise from the 9-12th July.

Lanzarote's Trade Winds

Lanzarote is known as a fairly windy island, and part of the reason our climate is so good is because of the wind which blows here on most days – without it temperatures would be much higher and the island would effectively become a desert, like the nearby Sahara.

But why do we get the winds, and why are they called “trade” winds?

Why we get winds in Lanzarote

Around the equator, which is the area known as the doldrums, there is a low pressure area of light, variable winds. The low pressure draws air in from above and below the equator, which results in wind moving from a north easterly direction above the line and a south easterly track from below it.  read more »
