The ultimate destination for spectacular sailing
For over 30 years, Wildwind in Greece has been the top holiday location for anyone who’s serious about sailing. Unique climatic conditions, the widest range of dinghies and catamarans in Europe, highly experienced instructors and a fun, laid-back atmosphere make this a holiday experience you just can’t find anywhere else.
From sailing enthusiasts to Olympic contenders, Wildwind is the number one choice.
Most of our guests come back year after year for a number of reasons:
Almost without exception, the mornings provide a light on-shore breeze perfect for beginners learning the ropes as well as for those more experienced practising more advanced skills. Then strong cross-shore winds most afternoons are tailor made for thrills and high -speed blasting across the bay – Vassiliki really does provide some of the most phenomenal sailing conditions in the world!
More than 70 boats are lined up waiting for you on the beach, with something suitable for everyone, from novice boats to Olympic classes. Check out our full list of dinghies and multihulls.
Our instructors, RYA and VWDS certified, are highly professional, friendly and very approachable on and off the water. The team receives plaudits every week of the season and everyone who works with us is dedicated to sharing their passion, knowledge and enthusiasm. Many of our staff have competed at International level – some of our previous staff have even gone on to win Olympic medals!
We offer a range of extra activities that make your sailing holiday a great social experience too, with events such as our beach BBQ nights with live music and our cosy cocktail evenings.
So many extra options
For travel companions who may not be as keen on sailing as you, we offer the Wildwind Kids’ Club, our unique Healthy Options programme with Yoga, Pilates and fitness classes, the Wildwind Adventures programme that offers a range of adventurous sports on, off and under the water, and Free as the Wind, our unique combination holiday with sailing and windsurfing.
Your hotel right on the beach
A great choice of different types of accommodation, all right on or directly off the beach, just yards from the sailing centre.
Wildwind is based in Vassiliki, a small fishing village on the island of Lefkas. With its award-winning beaches and incredible scenery, it is rightly known as the Emerald of the Ionian Sea. Even from the furthest parts of Europe it is less than a 3-hour flight away. After a short transfer along the gorgeous coastline, you’re all set to start the best sailing holiday available anywhere in Europe.
