Exceptional sailing experience in the bay of vassiliki
One of the reason why so many of our guests return year after year, is because of the truly exceptional sailing conditions in the Bay of Vassiliki combined with the experienced staff and wide range of equipment.
Vassiliki is blessed with unique wind conditions that give you the best of both worlds.
A.M. On most mornings, the wind is a gentle onshore breeze, ideal for beginners to get their first taste of the joys of sailing and windsurfing. The more advanced sailors use this time to brush up their techniques on the more demanding boats and to do some windsurfing freestyle.
P.M. Most afternoons the wind switches cross-shore and builds ready for an exciting afternoon in the safe waters of this expansive bay. The more experienced can do some heavy wind training or just go blasting, while the novices can team up with one of the instructors for the ride of their lives!
Waiting for you on the beach is an impressive lineup of boats: high performance dinghies and catamarans for experienced sailors and a great selection of less demanding craft for beginners and youngsters. See the overview of our fleet elsewhere on this page.
Our team of instructors are highly professional, experienced and approachable; many have competed at national and international level. We are an RYA recognised teaching school (Click here to see our certificate) and are one of the few that offer courses to cover the full range of their syllabus. All courses are on offer at no extra charge, and the RYA qualification means that your safety is never compromised.
Whether you are a total novice or you have been sailing since you were a kid, there is no better place to learn and have fun on the water!
