Dinghy Sailing Holidays

A dinghy sailing holiday in Greece is the perfect place to enjoy this exciting sport with warm water, reliable winds and lots of sunshine! We teach complete beginners, intermediate and advanced sailors and our friendly team of RYA (Royal Yachting Association) instructors make each session as fun and sociable as possible.

Each of our Beach clubs has been hand-picked to offer the most consistent and reliable conditions for sailing; expect a gentle morning breeze every day before the wind builds to offer exciting sailing after lunch.

Dinghy Racing

In all our centres we offer fun regattas throughout the week which all levels can join, with a mid week and end of week regatta. The racing is aimed at all levels, it's all about taking part and having fun - so it's OK to show your competitive side too!

 


 

 Picture


Dinghy Cruising

We also offer sociable dinghy cruises where conditions allow. These are longer-distance half day cruises with support boats on hand so you can get a feel for distance sailing in company. This is better for 2-handed boats and we normally offer technical clinics along the way aimed at cruise planning techniques.

The small flotilla of dinghies will often cruise to another island or beach for a mid-morning stop over for some swimming or a coffee and ice cream. Longer distance cruises are well planned events which will always have instructors and support boats on hand.

Sailing for children

Kids will love our free Kids Clubs (ages 4-13) and Youth Squad (ages 7-13).

Kids Club is perfect for kids that want a sociable time meeting other kids and taking part in organised activities led by our childcare staff on land and in the water.

If you’ve got any budding young sailors in the family, then our RYA Youth Squad is a dedicated coaching club for dinghy sailing or windsurfing, mixed up with the more sociable side of our kids club. One week - £159, two weeks - £295.

Kids don't have to be in Youth Squad to go sailing; children age 13 and below are welcome to sail with a parent or guardian; while children age 14 above can join the adult teaching sessions.

The best boats, free to use all week!

Each of our Beach Clubs offers an exciting range of the latest sailing dinghies and catamarans which are free for you to use all week. We have an extensive range of single and double handed boats and family cruisers to choose from, and there's a big fleet so we always have plenty of boats available for exclusive use by our guests.

Performance Boats

Unlike some other operators, we don't make any extra charge for using our high end and performance sailing dinghies. We have boats for all abilities and one of the greatest ranges of performance boats in the industry. Let us take you for a spin in a high performance boat, or show you the ropes and then hand over the reins - helping you step up into a more exciting boat this summer! Performance boats include the RS 100, RS 200, RS 500 & RS 800.

 

Experience and lessons

To take a boat out on your own, we will ask that you have at least some sailing experience. Whether you are a complete novice, have a done a little sailing before or are a regular club sailor - we have tuition which will suit you! The RYA Level 1 and 2 courses are available for FREE in all resorts, while Advanced sailors can join the Level 3 course and Advanced Modules in the resorts of Porto Heli and Horto - again for free.

Our own RYA Instructors

Our friendly team of British instructors are all fully qualified RYA (Royal Yachting Association) professionals. They are on hand all day to help rig boats, teach sailing groups, give advice, tips and guidance for all levels from beginner to advanced. They play an active role both on and off the beach in all parts of your holiday, so outside of lessons they are there to help in any way that they can.

 

Lessons format

Our free and inclusive courses of lessons follow the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) syllabus and are spread over five days of the week in handy 3 hour sessions to allow you time to try as many other activities or relax with the family. These courses will allow you to build the skills required to gain an RYA qualification whether beginner or more experienced dinghy sailor. You may dip in and out of tuition as you wish and free-sail our dinghies anytime you choose during beach opening hours. Our beach team will always be on hand to help you onto the water and rig kit for you. Just go down to the waterfront and ask to use a boat or board.


There’s no need to book lessons or courses before departure. If you are keen to get a qualification during your stay, please ask our beach team on arrival and they will advise on how you can do this whilst making the most out of your week and the other great activities on offer.


Our fun and sociable coaching groups are for 8-12 people with an instructor/pupil ratio of 1:6. These focussed tuition groups will really help you develop your sailing and it has been known for keen sailors to achieve two courses in one week if their skills allow: one for sailing and one for windsurfing.


Waterfront opening times are generally 09.30- 18.00 with a break for lunch, but can open until later in the evening or until the last guest is off the water, especially in Vassiliki if the wind picks up!
