Program

Greece, the Magic land of Meltemi, in July and August is the ideal location where to run a catamaran kite and sailing camp. You will sail and kite from Paros in the area of the central Cyclades, kiting in Pounda, Antiparos, Blue Lagoon, Mykonos, Rinia, and Kofounissi.

During summer the local Meltemi wind is strong and reliable, providing endless days of kitesurfing between the islands. In the evening it is time to explore the local life in the characteristic blue and white villages with amazing sunsets on the sea and good dinners in the local tavernas.

Route and spots

You will sail from Paros to Paros around the central Cyclades, route, and spots will be chosen according to the weather and wind conditions. The main islands and spots will be Paros, Antiparos, Naxos, Kofounissi, Rinia, and Mykonos. A visit to Ios and Donoussa could be an option too.

Kiting, coaching, and rescue

Kite level

Minimum level required to kite without classes and supervision is the ability to ride upwind, control the kite on the land, body drag upwind and relaunch the kite from the water. The setting up, the taking off and the landing of the kite will be done sometimes from the catamaran. Staff will help and assist the riders.

Rescue

Kiters can count on the assistance of a 20 hp tender.

Kite classes

Classes are possible for beginner according to spots, wind conditions, and composition of the group on board. Only one tender is available both for beginner’s lessons and independent kiter’s rescue. Classes are possible for beginners without limitation for group reserving the entire catamaran.

Manuela will give you tips and tricks on how to get the shots. Duotone supports the clinic and you will be able to test some of the latest gear (including foil board). Minimum Level: independent, able to stay upwind, and change direction.

Wind and weather

During summer, the local Meltemi wind is strong and reliable, providing endless days of kitesurfing between the islands. Meltemi is blowing from the north with an intensity between 15 and 30 kn. When Meltemi is not on, 12 - 15 kn thermal breeze is present. You will need a kite size between 6 - 12 m. A 3 - 2 mm shorty wetsuit is advised for strong Meltemi days and sunset sessions.

Day 2 - Kiting in Paros, Pounda

Pounda is the main spot in Paros Island. A beautiful long sandy beach with side wind in the channel between Paros and Antiparos with two kite schools and a nice restaurant with a sea-view.

This spot is magic for a sunset ride when kiting on the direction east-west, you will see as many sunsets as you will close a roundtrip from Paros to Antiparos.

Day 3 - Kiting in Antiparos Lagoon

In this paradisiac anchorage the catamaran is floating in 1.5 m crystal water and you will forget to be in the Med. Seems at all to be in a caraibic lagoon.

Meltemi here is not blowing strongly and this spot is a good shelter when around wind is picking up to more than 30 knots.

Day 4 - Kiting in Blue Lagoon

A legendary spot where the Meltemi is blowing strongly, the water is super flat and the colors are amazing. This paradise can be reached only by boat and there is a little sandy beach where to launch and land the kite.

Day 5 - Kiting in Kofounissi

Kofounissi is the pearl of the Small Cyclades, a group of little islands located south of Naxos. Meltemi is blowing strong in one of the most amazing spots of Greece and the nights are full of colors and beauty in the little town where you can find bars on the beach, a taverna on the fishermen pier and a pub in a windmill.

Day 6 - Sailing to Mykonos

Sailing from Kofounissi to Mykonos.

Day 7 - Kiting in Mykonos

Mykonos is the island of the Meltemi and the nightlife. When Meltemi is on, in Korfos beach it is easy to be overpowered with a 7 m. The Action Cruise will anchor in Ornos and go kiting in Korfos after a 10 minutes walk through the town. From Ornos busses or taxis can easily drive us to Mykonos Old Town.

Day 8 - Kiting in Rineia

Rineia is a deserted island with a beautiful and wild spot and a beach where to start and land the kites. From Rineia is possible to visit the ancient archeological site of Delos, one of the most sacred places of ancient Greece, where the Delos Treasure and Oracle were located.
