Dear Friends,

NEW BOATS: Our 2017 season opened last Saturday 6th May. It was a perfect Vassiliki day with the cross-shore wind filling in at about 2pm and giving our first clients of the season perfect conditions to launch our brand new ice-blue Lasers and our refurbished fleet of cats and dinghies of all shapes and sizes.

Here's a short video about sailing in Vass!

TRAINING WEEKS: Over the next two weeks Aaron and Joe will be running our annual Laser and catamaran intensive training courses?- both Laser weeks are already full but we do have a couple of last minute spots available for the catamaran weeks so if you want a boost to your summer sailing season and you can get a week off work do call us as soon as possible.

30th ANNIVERSARY WEEK: 25th June to 2 July. ?We’ve managed to find a few extra flights and if you’re quick you can still join us for Wildwind’s 30th anniversary week and the 7th edition of the Vassiliki Watersports Festival. This year the Festival will feature a few extra days of racing in Laser, Open Dinghy and Multihull classes, with the Hobie 16 event being counted as the Greek National Championships. As you might expect we’ve some great entertainment planned, including the WW BBQ on Tuesday and on the Saturday night an absolutely awesome David Bowie tribute band playing on the main stage outside Vassiliki town Hall.

JULY AND AUGUST HOLIDAYS: Unsurprisingly our peak season holidays are already filling up and our July weeks are almost full already. Please do call us as soon as you can if you’d like to visit us this summer, especially if you are coming with a family and would prefer one of our two bedroom apartments and linked rooms.

Wishing you the very best of the summer

Simon, Joe and the Wildwind team.
