Leda, Pelion Wind Information

Typical pattern:
  • • Mornings: F1-2 
  • • Afternoons: F3-5

The general pattern in Horto, Pelion is a Force 1-2 wind in the morning, changing to a Force 3-4 cross-offshore wind in the afternoon, with Force 5 winds a regular occurrence offering up exciting planing conditions!

The early morning light winds provide beginners and families with the perfect learning environment.

As the winds build after lunch, a moderate wind strength helps all levels to get planing on their boards in more exciting conditions, though never too extreme... and simply guaranteeing lots of fun.

Inclusive Tuition & RYA courses

  • Beginner Start Windsurfing lesson is free (3 hrs on-the-water)
  • Beginner Start Dinghy Sailing lesson is free (3 hrs on-the-water)
  • Refresher Windsurf lesson is free (1 hr shore based)

  • More on Windsurf tuition | More on Sailing tuition

In all our clubs we include a free use of all beach kit (boards, boats, kayaks and bikes) and even a free lesson for beginner sailors and windsurfers. It’s a 3-hour lesson run by our own RYA instructors and designed to get you started and on-the-water, so you can ‘free sail’ our great kit all week. 

Our staff will help you rig and de-rig your board or boat and they’ll also help you get launched and get back in. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us and no craft goes into the water without safety cover.
