Challenge yourself this summer – it’s good for your Health!
“Scientists have discovered that humans have something they call a “blue mind.” This means that our brains are hardwired to react positively to water. Watching the ocean, listening to the ocean, or being in the ocean, gives the brain a rest from overstimulation. Our brains do not shut down, they simply adjust how they are working, giving them a much-needed break… Often followed by the release of the happiness chemicals – dopamine and serotonin.”Lees meer

Visit Greece in May and you’ll be amazed!
There is no place quite like Greece in May and if you have never experienced it, you must and here’s why…
First of all, you’ll be welcomed more than at any other time. After the long winter break the locals are extremely happy to be seeing clients to be returning to their businesses and enjoying their beautiful island. There are far fewer tourists around at this time of year than there are at the height of summer, so you can take advantage of great service and the feeling of being able to find your own little corner to escape to.
Secondly, there’s s freshness not only in the air but on the beach too. Wake up to a dozen brand new Lasers and our foliing Aeros, as well as our refurbished fleet lovingly prepared for the start of the season.Lees meer

Youth Training with current world champion this summer
We are extremely fortunate to have the current 420 World champion, Bryony Bennett Lloyd working as a member of staff at Wildwind this season. Bryony has to return home at the end of June to compete in the SB3 Nationals - after that she is keen to return to Vassiliki but she also needs to raise funds for her 2020 Tokyo Olympic campaign in the new 49er FX class – so we are offering 4 lucky WW youths each week from July 6th to get personal instruction from Bryony – at a cost of £100 per youth per week to be paid directly to Bryony to support her campaign.
If you are interested in having your kids take advantage of this very special opportunity then please contact Simon Morgan, Wildwind founder, at email@example.com in the first instance.
PS See Bryony on video at the ISAF Worlds 2013 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdQDLBLYZL8Lees meer
