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 2pm the wind builds again – giving even more exciting conditions for windsurfers and sailors. Our formula of top-notch equipment and expert RYA instructors will ensure most sailors (improver and up) can continue sailing all afternoon.

What meals are provided?

The Ultra All-Inclusive Package is included with all our holidays, here’s what’s in store for summer 2019

  • • Food 24 hrs a day
