Tuition change for 2019

We include free lessons for beginners, Improvers and Intermediate dinghy sailors and windsurfers (in all our Clubs) using our own RYA instructors. So no change there. They will now become shorter, more intense daily sessions and focussed on the skills that you wish to learn. You can choose which lesson you want to do (or you can do all of them!). You can still do a full RYA course for a small charge (from £69 for 10-12 hours of tuition) which we think is exceptional value!  More on sailing and windsurfing lessons.

Your kids will make lots of new friends and have a whale of a time trying new activities and watersports tasters all week. But don’t blame us when they won’t want to leave!

Kos Wind Information

Typical pattern:
  • Mornings: F1-2 
  • Afternoons: F4-7

Each day in paradise starts the same: The morning eases in with a gentle on-shore Force 1-2 breeze and very calm water. This is perfect for families and beginners learning to windsurf and sail, or trying paddle sports and water skiing, (payable locally). It’s also a good time for the experts to try out new kit or moves.

The thermal wind builds slowly around lunchtime and remains very manageable offering fun sailing for all levels into the afternoon. Around 2-3pm the wind builds again – giving even more exciting conditions for windsurfers and sailors. 

Our top-notch equipment and expert instructors will ensure that most sailors (improver and up) can continue sailing all afternoon. There’s only a little surface chop, no waves and fantastic conditions all day.

What’s the beach like?

The beach on Kos outside our centre is a long stretch of sandy beach mixed with some stones. Wade out into waist-deep crystal-clear water for some distance which helps make windsurfing and sailing easier. Enjoy very clean waters and safe swimming for all ages. 

The  Beach Club gardens lead onto the beach and there are sun loungers and umbrellas by the water, a beach bar and our Ocean Elements water sports centre is nearby.
