Vassiliki Stay & Sail

Discover the best of both worlds this summer… Try a Beach club holiday in your first week; then take to the seas on an Ocean Elements yacht to cruise the beautiful Ionian Islands for your second week. A fantastic ‘twin centre’ holiday which is unrivalled for variety and made for families.

You get to relax and unwind in our Beach Club hotel in Vassiliki, enjoying a variety of shore-based activities and water sports, while the young ones go wild at our active clubs for kids and teens. Then step aboard your yacht for week two and join our sociable Flotilla cruise where every route is planned for you, or go Bareboat sailing around the islands.

About our Beach Club

The Ocean Elements Surf Hotel Beach club is on the southern tip of Lefkada in the water sports mecca of Vassiliki, just 30 mins drive from Lefkas marina. Situated right on the beach, with stunning sea views, our family hotel offers a relaxing atmosphere with inclusive activities all week. 

So try your hand at dinghy sailing and windsurfing with RYA tuition on tap. Or perhaps some paddle boarding, mountain biking or kayaking for a change. We also offer fitness clubs, excursions and Active Clubs for Kids and Teens. 

Stay and Sail is a great way to hone your sailing skills in dinghies with our RYA instructors, or learn to windsurf in calm morning conditions… then go for a blast in the afternoon when the thermal wind fills in. It’s also great for kids to meet other children and learn some water sports too.

Your yacht

Our Ocean Elements yacht fleet is based 30 minutes from our Beach club in Vassiliki. We’ll transfer you there for your second week afloat, where our lead crew will greet you and give you a full sailing briefing on the yacht.

Join our Flotilla or go Bareboat or hire a skipper if you prefer? Yachts sleep 6 to 8 people and have fully equipped galleys (kitchens), a comfortable saloon with sofa seating and at least three double cabins and a bathroom with WC and shower.

New to Yacht Sailing?

If you’ve never set foot on a yacht before then now‘s the time to learn. Try our RYA Competent Crew course which is a week-long first stage qualification for yacht sailing. 

Step aboard our training yacht with our Yacht Master Instructor and come away with not just a fantastic new experience but a healthy suntan and an RYA certificate at the end.

Expect lots of ‘hands-on sailing’ in a sociable and practical environment, learning new skills with other budding sailors. This qualification will prepare you for taking the RYA Day Skipper course and will get you well on the way to becoming a yacht skipper.

Don’t have any qualifications?

To charter a boat in Greece you will need to have at least a Day Skipper or ICC qualification, (International Certificate of Competence). The great news is you can take your Day Skipper and ICC with us.

Our Day Skipper courses runs alongside our Competent Crew course on a skippered training yacht which starts from Lefkas and follows our Ionian Flotilla cruise. Courses last for one week, so by week two, (after successful completion), you will be able to skipper your own yacht in our Flotilla or on Bareboat.

If you’re already an experienced sailor, then you can take your ICC with us during your first week at our Beach club. It’s normally a half day assessment with our own Yacht Master instructor. On successful completion, you will be awarded an RYA certificate so you can skipper your own yacht for week two.
