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.

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 top-notch equipment and expert 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 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 and bacon.

Lunch

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

Dinner

We offer an evening meal package of three evening meals for a special guest price so you can join in with our themed meal nights on a Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at our Beach Club ‘Skybar’ which has the best views in Vassiliki bay! Our package includes the popular farewell BBQ and awards ceremony. You can add this extra to your holiday booking online or over the phone.

For the other nights, it’s great to head to a nearby seafront restaurant (5 mins away) or along the seafront promenade into Vass’ which is an easy 10 mins walk. There you’ll find plenty of harbourside eateries and everything from pizza to a spectacular Greek feast!
