WILDWIND IN GREECE ... LEADING THE FLEET

Rob Spencer is a Laser II

For almost 30 years now the Wildwind centre has become known as the top location for windy afternoons and perfect beach sailing conditions. Set in Vassiliki bay on the island of Lefkas, we’ve become one of the world’s prime holiday destinations for those with high expectations when it comes to their sailing holiday.

Our team of highly experienced RYA qualified instructors make sure you get the most out of your holiday or just keep you safe on the water. We offer you a choice of top of the line equipment including a huge range of dinghies and catamarans.

For any travel companion that might not be so keen on sailing there is a huge variety of other activities available on and around Vassiliki including our unique 'Healthy Options' programme including yoga, Pilates, and fitness classes as well as massage, cycling, guided walks and more. Wildwind is also renowned for its relaxed social life including beach BBQ’s and chilled out cocktail nights with live music. And for the youngest ones there is our Kids’ Club.

'“I was lucky enough to have worked at Wildwind before I got seriously involved in my Olympic commitments.  My best memories are blasting around the bay in a selection of high performance dinghies and catamarans.  With the flat water and good afternoon winds, it really is a fantastic sailing destination”   Chris Draper , Olympic Bronze medallist, European and World Champion, America’s Cup helmsman.

What makes sailing in Vassiliki so special?

The best Sailing Conditions

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!

 

The Best Sailing Equipment

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 entire fleet.

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 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!
