Foiling for Sailing and Windsurfing
Ocean Elements is teaming up with ProVela to deliver world class foiling using the amazing F101 trimaran. Our pledge is to get confident laser sailors trying foiling for the first time and also offering a short ‘learn to foil’ course which guests at their Porto heli centre can add on to their beach club holiday. Each pupil or foiler will have plenty of time on the F101 learning with our instructor close beside in a power boat.
in November, Our head instructor did the first ever foiling course for instructors with the RYA! It is such a new sport or discipline that we are very excited to be among the first tour operator to launch a programme for foiling windsurfs and sailboats. The windsurf foiling will be will be at our Vassiliki centre and will have dedicated instructors. It is for more experienced windsurfers only.
Action-Packed Kids Clubs & Youth Squads!
Our inclusive Kids Clubs are always improving, and no less for 2018! Expect five days of organised activities run in sociable groups - so you can get some unhindered ‘me-time’ on the water. Your children will be making new friends in no time… but don’t be offended when they start saying that they’d rather spend time in kids club than with you!
Youth Squad is dedicated RYA tuition to get young water sports enthusiasts a level up in Windsurfing or Dinghy Sailing.
Flotilla and Yachts
Ocean Elements yacht program and flotilla gets 60% of the fleet upgraded with the latest hull designs from Jeanneau in the form of their 36i, 379 and 409. Ideal for cruising families looking for a performance boat in Mediterranean conditions.
We are also offering a new ‘North Ionian’ flotilla route to complement our South Ionian route - perfect for those wanting a to cover more miles… and is definitely a ‘Sailors Flotilla’.
Bringing the 'Club' back into Beach Club
We are proud to announce that ALL our clubs including the Surf hotel and Xenia (Vassiliki) and Club Leda, (Pelion) and Nautica Bay, (Porto Heli) will now offer 5 days of inclusive (Free) RYA tuition for sailing and windsurfing which can be taken as a (also free) RYA course… so you go home with a new international qualification!
We know that inclusive lesson groups are the best way to have fun, socialise and get you on the water - thus ensuring you meet like-minded guests more easily. Our small centre ethos brings the ‘CLUB’ back into Beach club.
Our ‘Paradise-like’ club Leda will go onto a long-awaited Saturday changeover day (instead of Fridays) which we are really excited about... This is a departure from the norm and as you can imagine - it is booking fast!
We are also delighted to offer 4 villas as an option instead of our hotel and apartment style rooms. Each villa has two or three bedrooms and a private pool. Perfect for families wanting a little more independence but with all the same benefits as the rest of the centre - with direct access to the beach and ar our e normal water sports programme.
