We spent two weeks there in August last year.  Most of the sailing was conducted in the bay.  The winds there were mostly lightish, but most afternoons there was a reasonable breeze.  They do a few trips out of the bay each week into the gulf - one to have a play with a bit more wind and a bit more space - a cruise to the next bay for lunch - and a race "around the rock".  Racing in the bay more or less every day.  Everything was well organised, and the instruction was very good - also the hotel and the food.  Porto Heli itself is rather uninspiring. 

We had a play with the 4000 and the 800, but I spent most of my time improving my racing in a laser.  Very useful.
