After the long and partially warm winter break, time to cool down!
Last year we observed at Wind & Friends a strong increase in dinghy sailing. After years of stagnation, the sailing courses seem to be on the upswing again. Even children's courses were well documented with 24 junior sailing certificates which was a record year.
How do you explain the fascination of sailing people to those that do not sail themselves?
When we talk about our experiences, we often reap astonished looks: constantly your clothes are wet, you fluctuate back and forth getting sea sick first at sea and later ashore, the wind whistles cold around your ears and your fingers are numb and hurt.To avoid this, choose the sailing area carefully, in Mallorca it wouldn’t happen. From the moment of sailing off it's just a matter of coordinating the interaction of wind, sails and steering, making the right movements at the right time.The route is the goal!
On 25 March Wind & Friends opens its doors! And do not forget: the great thing about sailing is sailing!
