To get the best out of this clinic participants will need to be fully blasting in the harness and footstraps, waterstarting and be attempting carve gybes. If you are advanced then the sky is the limit. Jem has had people learning a range of moves from 360s to loops, vulcans to spocks.
The main group will be staying at the very hospitable and friendly Hotel Lighthouse. There is a further option of staying in the more comfortable Lighthouse II with Air-con and TV, a short walk way. The package is half board with a generous breakfast and evening meal available. Wireless is now available in the taverna!

Wind 5 DAYS OUT OF 7 AVERAGE OVER 14 YEARS, ALOT OF WEEKS AT 100% WIND! Choose from cross-off from the right with the very reliable Meltemi getting a local boost to give us flat water and chop, or, a short sail upwind, there is also a cross onshore beach giving us small waves to practice on or get into bump and jump/wavesailing. This place almost seems designed to help you improve whilst giving you an awesome range of conditions.
The social will revolve around us meeting up for some pre-dinner drinks and then having dinner together in the restaurant, where we may peruse the days video action. There will be a mid-week option of an evening out to the beautiful town of Lindos, with its roof-top restaurants and stylish bars. It is all pretty relaxed and we have some great chat and share a good laugh at our daily stunts.
Wednesday morning flights from Gatwick are most likely lasting 4 hours on Tba followed by a coach transfer lasting just over an hour. If it’s like last year we can get a sail either on the final morning or first afternoon giving us that magic 7 days possible water time! My international clients should book their flights to coinicide with the clinic dates and you can get these from most countries including Austria, Germany, Holland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and many others
Should your aching limbs need any other action then there is Volleyball and some fantastic walks, or take a drive round the island. Bookings can be made locally for any other excursions should you require and the centre now has some SUPs for hire.
