Become Fluent in the Ways of Wind and Sail!

Vliho Yacht Club

Sailing at Vliho Yacht Club, Lefkas, offers expert sailing guidance on Laser Picos and our crew boat, the Laser 16. With both shelter for instruction and nice winds, Vliho Bay is the perfect spot for the thrill of learning to sail.

Vliho Yacht Club Sail training was originally set up for local kids to learn to sail, practice their skills and explore the bay through treasure hunts, racing techniques and suchlike. Now we are open to all beginners, experienced sailors, individuals and groups of all ages. Our staff are Royal Yachting Association qualified and offer small boat sailing guidance from a 2 hour taster session to a 3-day sailing experience. If you already sail, our Lasers are available to rent for a 1 hour, half day or full day of fun!

The Laser Pico is popular worldwide as a stable, easy to handle and responsive boat ideal for beginners, or to better your sailing skills exploring the water and coastline. The idea is to learn to sail in these small, single-handed boats gaining expertise and confidence to sail larger sailboats and yachts.

One-to-one sessions help to build skills before learners join the weekly members club. Membership is available for a small fixed annual fee. This gives access to members' trips and a team rash vest. For children, during school term, the club runs on Saturdays from 11- 1 pm, and during school holidays on Thursdays from 2 - 4pm.

Our charter yachts are also available for training and to improve your current skills. We also offer coaching with you on your own yacht on any area that you choose, whether it is mastering your spinnaker drops or improving on your upwind performance.
