Pre-requisite experience and qualifications

You must be a qualified RYA Start Windsurfing Instructor with significant coaching experience and at least 50 hours logged. Your personal windsurfing ability enables you to demonstrate advanced technique on demand.

You must hold an Intermediate planing personal certificate with Beach Start and Non-Planing Carve Gybe clinics, a RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate, and valid First aid certificate. Please see the RYA’s list of approved First Aid certificates.

Full itinerary

The Intermediate Instructors course is 4 days long with no moderation required. Candidates are continually assessed during the course on their personal sailing ability.

You will be asked to demonstrate your ability to deliver Intermediate teaching methods using the RYA’s Fastfwd scheme, and show your powerboat rescue techniques in light and windy conditions.

The Trainer will assess your presentation techniques and theory knowledge to the required standard. You will also demonstrate how to use the simulator to best effect.

At the end of the 4-day course, your trainer will issue you with an Intermediate Instructors ticket, planing or non-planing, if you have met the required criteria.

If you are an early riser you will be able to join guided mountain bike rides, fitness sessions or take a morning swim in the beautiful clear waters of Vasiliki bay. At the end of a training day, there will be time to unwind and take time out for some personal windsurfing.

In the evening, Vasiliki’s nightlife kicks in. Vass is a busy town full of bars and restaurants where you find friendly, like-minded people enjoying a cool beer chatting about the day’s activities
