Change for 2019

A ‘Start Sailing’ and ‘Start Windsurf’ lesson is free, it’s enough to get you free-sailing all our great kit all week. In a bid to keep our holiday cost down and to give you more flexibility, RYA courses are now chargeable, rather than being ‘free-for-all’ and inclusive. We’ve kept the price low and our new approach will help us give a better service with more planned and focused sessions.

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!

Inclusive Club Board Meals 

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 hearty buffet lunch is served each day but is only ‘inclusive’ for one day per week. 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‘ non-inclusive’ so guests can take part in our boat cruise to Spetses for dinner on the island (payable locally) which normally runs Wednesdays)

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.
