We are based in Vassiliki on the beautiful Greek island of Lefkas, which, with its award winning beaches and incredible scenery, is justifiably known as the jewel in the Ionian sea. What's more it's... just a short (2hr 50 min) flight with only a 1hr transfer along the beautiful east coast of the island to our centre in the south.

Update on the Greek financial situation – 8th August

07 July 2015

So far life in Vassiliki has been almost unaffected by the Greek 'crisis'. All the shops, bars and restaurants in the village are open and trading; most of the shops will still take card payments but the bars and restaurants are reluctant to take card payments.

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!
