Alternative programmes: Wildwind Adventures, Healthy Options and the Wildwind Kids’ Club
While Wildwind has a great reputation for its sailing holidays, we offer much more! Our Kids Club gives children 7 years old and up a fabulous chance to have fun learning to sail while giving parents a well-earned break. If you’re travelling with a partner who’s not as big a sailing fan as you, then maybe our unique Healthy Options programme can be a healthy and enjoyable alternative. Our Wildwind Adventures programme is something different altogether. Try out a whole range of water sports, exploring the beautiful island with a different adventure every day, on, off and under the water!

Wildwind Kids Club
Needless to say, at Wildwind we are passionate about sailing. Few things are as important to us as sharing some of this passion by introducing young people to this wonderful sport. We consider the Kids Club an integral part of Wildwind.
In the Wildwind Kids Club, we offer instructions to youngsters who have never sailed before. They’ll try their first hand in sailing in simple beginner dinghies and Hobie Cats. Kids who already have some experience in the RYA youth classes will be coached individually, taking into account their ambition and ability. It goes without saying that a keen eye is always on them for maximal safety.
All kids on our sailing courses are comprehensively taught and thoroughly looked after by dedicated members of sailing staff, in morning and afternoon sessions. Not only will we teach them to sail, we’ll make sure they have fun learning! This leaves you free to go sailing yourself, or to relax and enjoy the leisurely pace of Vassiliki.
The Wildwind Kids Club is open to youths from 7 to 17 years old. We are occasionally happy to take younger ones, as long as you feel they are able to cope with learning to sail. We cannot provide supervision unless they are booked on our sailing programme.
Our innovative Healthy Options programme is ideal for partners who do not sail, or for anyone who likes to relax after an active day on the water. We offer a wide range of Yoga, Pilates and fitness classes, as well as guided bike rides and walks through the gorgeous Greek countryside.
When setting up the Healthy Options programme, one thing we aimed for was diversity. Try out stand-up paddle-boarding in the calm morning waters, join in our Agio Fili walk along the beach, ending in a meditation session on the most rustic of places followed by a boat trip back to the centre stopping on the way for swimming and snorkelling at some of the most gorgeous, unspoiled beaches of Europe.
Our Yoga, Pilates and fitness classes are held throughout the day in a dedicated location, just yards from the beach. We offer classes for beginners and improvers, so even if you never tried Yoga before, feel free to join in and improve your flexibility and core muscles. That’s of great benefit for everyone, but certainly for those who sail.
Do you need to unwind from your stressed-out job on your arrival, or would you like to ease away muscle strain at the end of your weeks' activities? You can book a wonderful massage on location. For those on the Healthy Options programme, a half-hour massage is already included in the package.

What our happy customers are saying
It would have to be the cross wind mixed with reliable blue skies. You get a quiet calm morning and in the afternoon you get the cross winds, the boats come out, and you just have a fantastic time. - Clarry Knight, Manager from Exeter
We're having a great time. It's the fourth time I've been here now and it's the only place we've ever come back to. I think that says a lot for Wildwind and the staff here. The staff are great, they know us now. We always get greeted by name as we arrive. We love going out sailing with them. They're some of the best sailors I've come across and brilliant teachers so it's really a fantastic place to come to. - Andrew Repton, Engineering Director from Wootton Bassett
