Watersports Tuition

Windsurf Tuition (Inclusive)

Windsurfing tuition is included in the cost of your holiday and our clinics run almost every day. We have a brilliant team of British RYA (Royal Yachting Association) instructors and they’re on hand to help you, whether you’re in a lesson or not. Our lessons are very enjoyable where the emphasis is on fun and learning. We teach all levels from beginner to advanced windsurfers looking to develop.  

You can also do a complete RYA course (which is free-and-inclusive) for beginners to high-intermediates; and go home with an internationally recognised qualification at the end of your stay. There's no need to pre-book, just sign up when you arrive.


Dinghy Sailing Tuition (Inclusive)

Whether you’re stepping into a boat for the first time, looking to progress your skills or just sailing for fun, we offer the highest standards of tuition from our very own Royal Yachting Association (RYA) instructors; along with all the latest dinghies, catamarans and performance boats you’ll ever need!

We teach all levels and our clinics run most days. You can also do a complete RYA course which is free-and-inclusive for beginners and intermediates; and go home with an internationally recognised qualification at the end of your stay. There's no need to pre-book, just sign up when you arrive.

RYA Courses (Inclusive)

Give yourself a focus for the week and join one of our free-and-inclusive RYA courses for windsurfing and dinghy sailing and and go home with a new internationally recognised qualification to add to your suntanning achievements! Courses run for 4 to 5 mornings or afternoons each week (2-3 hours a day) and promise to be lots of fun and sociable as you learn in small 6 pupil groups, (to 1 instructor). There's no need to pre-book. Just sign up when you arrive.

Daily Clinics (Inclusive)

We also run daily clinics for windsurfing and sailing. They are free for you to drop in and out of and designed for those of you who don’t want to commit to a whole course for the week but would still like to learn some tips. We design them for beginner sailors and windsurfers and you can learn anything from tips on tacking to tips on carve gybing.

SailFoiling Tuition (Inclusive)

We even offer free foiling taster sessions for windsurfing and sailing so that you can experience the latest craze of foiling this summer. These 1 to 1.5 hours sessions will give you a taste of learning to fly on a specially adapted windsurf board or the RS Aero with GlideFree foils. You’ll need to be an intermediate level sailor or windsurfer to enjoy this taster.

Paddlesports Clinics (Inclusive)

Our expert beach team provide clinics for beginners and more accomplished paddlers. We’ll take beginners through their first steps on a SUP or a kayak and give an introduction to the different boards and kayaks available; with advice on how to safely fit a leash and buoyancy aid, how to correctly adjust your paddle size and getting started from the water’s edge. Once afloat, your instructor will walk you through some basic safety and paddle technique. You’ll soon be out on the water and exploring the bay in no time. We also have plenty of tips and advice to give to more accomplished paddlers - like advice on paddling positions, steering, paddle technique and strokes.

Sail Away Dinghy Cruising (Inclusive)

Longer distance dinghy cruising to a line-of-sight destination is a very satisfying experience. We will offer you the opportunity to take part in our Sail Away cruises as we sail in company to a nearby island (a few miles away) or ‘secret-beach’ stopover with instructors and support boats on hand.

Cruising in small boats is a rewarding excursion and you will learn about route planning, safety, basic navigation and long distance sailing skills to get you hooked.

Regattas and racing (Inclusive)

We run daily racing and mini-regattas in all our clubs, for all levels, throughout the week. We will cover the basic rules of racing in our free daily clinics and always before a race. Our races are light hearted and aimed at all levels, beginner to expert. We’ll also run a bigger mid-week and end-of-week regatta for class boats like the Laser fleet and handicap racing for mixed fleets. It’s all about taking part and having fun, (with prizes too!). A chance to show your competitive side!

Yacht & Skipper Training (extra)

If you’ve never sailed before then try our flotilla sailing RYA courses. We offer a range of courses from beginners to the more experienced sailors. 

We recommend taking a course during week one of a Stay Sail holiday to the Surf Hotel in Vassiliki so you can join our flotilla in week two and practice your newfound skills with our yacht team close to hand to help.

Even as a beginner with no experience, we can teach you everything you need to know to skipper your own yacht for week two on a flotilla with us. We don’t think that there’s any better holiday for such a learning experience.
