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.

Vassiliki Wind Information

Typical pattern:
  • • Mornings: F1-2 
  • • Afternoons: F4-7

Every day in paradise starts the same. Mornings offer a gentle on-shore breeze and calm conditions, (Force 1-2), perfect for families and beginners to learn windsurfing and sailing or to try paddle sports. It’s also a good time for the experts to experiment with new kit and technique. 

‘Eric’, (our favourite Thermal wind), is a daily occurrence, in fact something of a local phenomenon and strengthens slowly after lunch. It remains very manageable, offering fun and exciting sailing for all levels into the afternoon. Later in the afternoon ‘Eric’ will often build again to provide stronger winds which is why our beach stays open until late.

Our formula of top-notch equipment and expert RYA instructors, will ensure that most sailors (improver and up) can continue sailing all afternoon. There’s only a little surface chop, no waves and fantastic windsurf and sailing conditions all day.

What meals are provided?

Breakfast & Lunch

We provide a daily breakfast with full continental options like fruit, yoghurt, ham, cheese, cereals, local breads, patisseries and cooked options, like eggs.

Lunch

Our Driftwood beach bar serves a lunchtime meal and snack menu at reasonable prices. Expect a delicious selection of sandwiches, wraps, salads, pizza, pasta, burgers and local favourites like souvlaki and moussaka with healthy options.

Dinner

For two or three nights a week, we offer evening theme meals in our Sky bar which has the best view of Vassiliki bay. On other nights, the local Taverna’s provide good food at reasonable prices and most have waterside seating. Main courses start from only €7 or 8

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.
