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.

Porto Heli Wind Information

Typical pattern:
  • • Mornings: F1-2 
  • • Afternoons: F2-4

Porto Heli is a mecca for sailing and great for beginner to intermediate windsurfing. The general pattern in Porto Heli is a Force 1-2 onshore wind in the morning, changing to a Force 2-4 cross shore wind in the afternoon. Expect winds up to Force 4 regularly, especially outside the bay where we can sometimes arrange for our Performance boats to be sailed.

In high summer, the Meltemi can override this pattern and provide stronger winds. The enclosed nature of the bay offers safe and secure sailing and windsurfing for all levels.

There is some great Intermediate & Expert sailing to be enjoyed, especially in our performance dinghies, which can always plane in the right hands in under 10 knots of breeze!

What meals are provided?

Breakfast & Lunch

We provide a very hearty, daily breakfast buffet with full continental and cooked options like fruit, yoghurt, ham, cured meats, cheeses, cereals, local breads, patisseries and cooked options, like eggs, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, pancakes.

Lunch

A great buffet lunch is served each day and is ‘inclusive’ for one day per week on our Club Board package. You can pay for this locally if you prefer to eat in.

Dinner

A delicious 3-course evening meal buffet is served in the main restaurant each evening (6 nights) with one-night off, so guests can take part in our boat cruise to Spetses for dinner on the island (payable locally) which normally runs Wednesdays.
