this seems to be the least visited area on the forum so I thought I'd do my bit...

I want a holiday, spring next year, with the oppotunity to sail dinghys and race everyday. PRICE IS A FACTOR HERE, any ideas? possibly sw or med coast of france or a lake in italy.......

com'on spill the beans

Minorca Sailing usually do a cheap appartment share deal at the begining of the season. They have all the top kit and great instructors. The format of the day is coaching in the morning and racing in the afternoon followed by one to ones or free sailing. I have been twice this year, at the begining of the season and at the end and had a great time.

minorca definatly, they are great - not that im slightly bisased

and the format is racing in the afternoon for the advanced groups.

hey nigel so have you recovered from your wek in the 59er.... lol.  guess who this is?

 

sorry i kind of got lost in that message after realising who someone was.

yeah the sailing and tution in minorca is good, the kit is top quality and great fun to play about on and they have quite a good program of training and racing throughout the day.  - and if you have a slight racing backgroung you will probably be in the advanced group with out a question.

Thank you all so far

Anyone else got anything? possibly a cheaper option might be nice since I spent all my money on a new boat yesterday!

What about Windsport International in Falmouth? Might not provide you with brilliant weather but they do have a brilliant range of dinghies/skiffs/cats for you to sail.
