With a good ratio of instructors to beginner sailors you can rest assured that you will always be looked after. During the first morning on the water there will also be a safety boat assigned to your group for rapid attention to any matter which may arise. And Fornells Bay is reassurance itself: warm shallow water, locked in by the gentle hills and wooded countryside. Even learning to deal with a capsize is fun!

Whatever your level of sailing or windsurfing, you can be assured that new skills will be learnt in a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. With groups ranging from the complete beginner to the more advanced sailor or windsurfer, every capability is catered for.

(10-12 years)

Novices will learn to sail in our RS Teras. Youngsters with some sailing experience will also enjoy helming the RS Tera sailed with a 3.7m² Dacron Sport Sail. The RS Tera can be converted into a challenging and demanding race boat for our advanced sailors with the 4.8m² fully battened Mylar Pro Sail. A further progression is to sail the challenging and dynamic 4.7 Lasers. The exhilarating two person asymmetric RS Fevas are also sailed by our competent youngsters.

There is the opportunity to race every afternoon with specific race training sessions being held throughout the week. Keen racers can join in with the main race video and GPS sessions, and there is a regatta held at the end of the week. Beginner windsurfers start off on one of our many carefully chosen Junior boards and rigs. For keen and able board sailors we will help you improve your technique and skills such as using the harness and footstraps, planing, fast tacking, gybing and freestyle. The Vulcan windsurf group (ages 8-12) runs daily in the late afternoons allowing young sailors to learn new windsurfing skills in a fun and enjoyable group environment, with the aim of achieving RYA Stage 1 by the end of the week.

Teenagers It’s great to sail and windsurf! With our regular theory sessions, followed by on the water practice, it won’t be long before you’re racing all over the bay on the boat or board of your choice. Beginners will find it doesn’t take long to learn the basics in the warm Mediterranean, while more experienced and capable sailors and windsurfers will find our extensive fleets and equipment, exhilarating, challenging and above all, fun!

56

We have an abundance of Picos, Lasers and asymmetrics including RS Fevas, 29ers, 2000s, RS 100s, RS 200s, RS 400s and RS 500s for you to sail and race. You’ll find a multitude of the latest windsurf boards, rigs and harnesses to choose from, to suit all abilities and wind strengths. You can try your hand on one of our high performance craft and we can arrange for an instructor to accompany you on an asymmetric

such as the 29er or RS 800. You can also try one of our radical single handers, such as the RS Vareo, RS 100 or the Musto Skiff.

For keen racers there are GPS race sessions and training along with a daily race series. There is also the end of week regatta.

A variety of activities are included in the day’s sailing programme, such as destination sails and on the water games, allowing for a great team spirit to develop within the group. The group coordinator will oversee all activities and will organise and provide safety cover for all our groups on the water.

Our lively RYA instructors organise and participate in evening activites with you. These include video coaching, beach volleyball and pizza nights.

Safety The Bay of Fornells

The bay of Fornells is a large unspoilt landlocked area which can be sailed in all wind directions, it has a narrow opening to the sea and little disturbance from tides, providing a friendly and safe sailing environment for both sailors and windsurfers on all levels. To increase safety we ask all sailors to wear buoyancy aids at all times and helmets in single-handers in strong winds. With windsurfers we suggest buoyancy aids are worn when learning as recommended by the RYA.

Safety Boats

We consider that our motorised safety boats provide the best safety cover of any sailing centre in the world. With a fleet of Valiant 4.9m and Narwhal 4.8m semi inflatables with 25hp and 40hp Mercury four stroke engines, used for both teaching and safety cover.

Radio Communication

We consider that in any activity centre radio commu­ nication is essential. Our safety boats are linked to each other and the shore with IC-M501EURO radios. In addition to this our group sailing instructors carry IC-M33 waterproof radios, providing exceptional radio safety cover.

Safety Boat Drivers

All the instructors using the safety craft are RYA qualified and in addition to this we are an RYA Training Centre. So whether you are sailing out at sea, taking your first boat out in our sheltered waters or watching your children sail across the bay to a nearby island, you can be sure that quality, modern safety craft, with qualified drivers are always on hand whenever needed.

58

Boat Safety

We attach 40 litre Crewsaver Mast Floats to the top of our asymmetric masts. This reduces the tendency of capsized asymmetrics to invert, making them safer boats to enjoy. We attach small polystyrene buoyancy floats to the top of our Laser 4.7s, all our single handed beginner boats and our children’s boats. In the event of a capsize, these floats slow down the inversion process, making the recovery quicker and easier.

Shared Self-Catering Villas and Apartments

Accommodation is available either in self-catering villas or apartments, all of which are within 3 minutes’ walk from the local shop, restaurants and moorings. Our accommodation is personally selected and regularly used by our staff who can advise on individual requirements. The local village shop stocks a comprehensive range of food and domestic items for your everyday needs. One of the advantages of self-catering is eating ‘at home’ when it suits you. Lunch couldn’t be easier - a crisp salad, fresh bread, perhaps the local cheese and some fruit. Most villas have built-in barbecues enabling you to enjoy an occasional mediterranean meal on your own patio. When you wish to dine out there are two restaurants in the village. On the seafront with a commanding view of the bay is Restaurant Ses Salines. At the edge of the village, Ca Na Marga, a farmhouse-style barbecue restaurant, is a favourite evening meeting place. Fornells is a short walk along the bay and has a number of excellent restaurants, cafes, tapas bars, a variety of small shops, supermarkets, bakeries, a post office and a bank.

PASSPORTS, VISAS AND HEALTH

This information must be provided for all passengers travelling, including children and infants. The Spanish Authorities also require full passport details for anyone staying in a hotel or tourist self-catering accommodation. We will require your passport details no later than 2 weeks before departure.

Such major changes will comprise any of the following: Change of UK airport; change of departure or return by more than 12 hrs (excluding delays); change of holiday resort; change of accommodation to a lower official rating.

We also accept liability in respect of the death, bodily injury or illness of or to you or any person named, on the booking form relating to your holiday PROVIDED that it arises from the negligent acts and/or omissions of our employees, agents, suppliers, or sub-contractors, whilst acting within the scope of, or in the course of their respective employments or contracts with us. We shall give every reasonable assistance to a client who through mishap suffers illness, personal injury or death during the period of the holiday arising out of an activity which neither forms part of the holiday arrangement nor forms part of an excursion offered through us.

This will be limited to £6,500 per booking form and may be granted as a loan if you have suitable insurance cover already, or if there is any claim for the costs against a third party. Nothing in this condition shall apply to anything arising, during or out of carriage by air, sea or land to which international conventions apply and our liability is limited to the full extent allowed by the relevant convention.

(d) If you or any member of your party suffers illness, injury or death arising out of an activity which is the responsibility of a third party and does not form part of the inclusive holiday, we will provide financial assistance up to £5,000 per booking for any legal action taken by you, with our prior agreement, provided you request such assistance within 90 days of the misadventure and where your own holiday insurance does not provide such cover.
