Previously known as Dragnet, this net (known as MedNet in 2014) started on 1st April 2014 on 6516 kHz USB at 0530 UTC for the Mediterranean cruising season.

The net is open for cruisers from Greece to Gibralter to give position reports, discuss weather and to share any other useful information.

See comment below by Kay Parkes re. the plans for 2015.

Don - see http://www.noonsite.com/Members/sue/R2008-08-05-4
There are also many local VHF cruisers nets - listed on noonsite on the country/port pages.
Hopefully some other Med cruisers will come back with active SSB nets that operate currently in the Med - I have tweeted your question.

It seems a shame that the Mednet has closed so soon. I wasn't aware of it's existence until I read this. I would like to participate while we are cruising the Med. Are there any other SSB nets for cruisers in the Med that anyone is aware of.

It operated this summer as Mednet at 05.30 UCT on 6516 kHz. The boat numbers dwindled to 2 so it has closed for the winter and will re-open in April 2015. There were fewer boats checking in this year - new legislation in Turkey and Greece perhaps?
