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

  • Free ‘Start Windsurfing’ lesson (3 hrs)
  • Free ‘Start Dinghy Sailing’ lesson (3 hrs)
  • Free Refresher Windsurf lesson (1 hr shore based)
  • RYA courses from £69 (8-10 hrs tuition)
  • Private Lessons: from £34 per hr

We include tuition for beginners with all our holidays using our own British team of RYA instructors. So, if you’ve never set foot on a boat or a board before, or you need a refresher, then do make use of our free ‘Start Windsurfing’ lesson and our ‘Start Sailing’ lesson (3 hrs) at the beginning of your holiday. Or join our free (shore based) ‘Refresher Windsurfing’ lessons.

After your lesson you should be more than equipped with the skills to ‘free-sail’ our dinghies and windsurf kit all week, in calm conditions. All our equipment is free for you to use and our beach team are on hand (all week) to help you rig-up and get launched whenever you choose to go sailing. A support boat will always be on the water when you are sailing as your safety is of the utmost importance to us.

Bookable RYA courses

  • RYA Level 1-4 courses: from £69
  • 8-10 hrs tuition over 2-4 days
  • That’s equivalent to £6.90 per hr!
  • Ocean Elements ‘Fast Forward’ Learning
  • 6 to 1 student to instructor ratio

  • Book before you depart or on arrival

Our group lessons are a lot of fun. You’ll be meeting other great guests and benefitting from our ‘Fast-Forward’ coaching techniques to progress your sailing.

We offer all RYA course levels, 1 to 4, and they run in small groups with a maximum of 6 students to 1 instructor to quicken the learning curve. You can book a course when you arrive in resort, but we’d recommend you book before you travel to ensure availability.
