For Beginner Dinghy Sailors
On a beach club holiday we focus on the basics of dinghy sailing in a relaxed environment and in a stunning location. As part of the inclusive group support clinics we’ll cover the following :
- Safe sailing – the basic rules of safety in dinghies, including shallow water capsize drills so you can be confident in the water.
- Rigging of equipment – Correct rigging and sail reefing is important to learn and really helps feeling comfortable on the water.
- Launching and landing – Getting in and out safely and easily is super easy when you know-how.
- Turning around – Known as Tacking and Gybing – it’s much easier than it looks.
- Sailing in all directions – Learn the skills to feel comfortable in a dinghy in all directions ( points of sail )
- Theory – Some basics so you’ll understand the practical side of things when you get going.
As part of our beach club holiday package we offer free group tuition called Support Clinics. We focus on beginners early on in the week lead to more advanced skills as the holiday goes on. Our beach team will talk you through the theory of dinghy sailing, run land and water demos, and get you out on the water as much as they can and as quickly as possible.
For Intermediate Dinghy Sailors
If you can sail a dinghy around a triangular course and tack and gybe this is for you. Boost your confidence by dinghy sailing in moderate winds and learn intermediate skills that will help improve your overall technique. As we pretty much have the dinghy sailing area to ourselves, it’s a really good stress-free environment to practice these intermediate skills. Breezy afternoons and cross/cross-offshore conditions at both our clubs really help too. As you’re out on the water the majority of the support takes place from the safety boats.
For Advanced Dinghy Sailors
We offer specific advanced clinics for experienced dinghy sailors looking to improve their skills. Flying spinnakers, roll tacks, using a trapeze, race techniques and trim are some of the more advanced techniques we’ll aim to cover.
Inclusive Regatta Days
Everyone loves a race, and everyone can get involved in our weekly regattas. We hold the infamous dinghy sailing Regatta at Lixouri Bay and Stira Bay beach clubs at the end of the week. Sign up, choose your weapon and race around the set course.
Inclusive Sail-Away Days
As part of your dinghy sailing holiday in Greece we offer amazing half-day excursions using the dinghies. Kind of like Swallows and Amazons but without the raincoats. Set the sails on our fleet of brand new RS dinghies and after a leisurely hop across the bay discover hidden coves and secluded beaches. Throw in a support boat, some friendly beach staff and an ice box stuffed full of cold drinks and you may well have found the highlight of your beach club sailing holiday in Greece.
We pride ourselves on having great kit that is regularly updated. Pre-booking isn’t needed, just wander down and off you go. We also have safety boats ready to go, and a full range of buoyancy aids for security. Here’s a selection of what we might have rigged and ready for you on the beach.
2 to 4 person dinghy
