We've just returned from two superb weeks in Marsa Alam. With 12 out of 14 planning wind days. As ever we blended our WINDWISE coaching system with great socials and much more than just coaching!
It's always a pleasure to be sailing in the Red Sea and there were no signs of Egypt's troubles in the tranquil setting of Marsa Alam. It was good to feel we were supporting the economy and local people were, as ever, incredibly welcoming! Windsurfing in the Red Sea and Egypt is safe and still well worth considering as an option, so we plan to return in 2014!
We covered a whole range of skills on the water from blasting, early planing, gybing, duck gybing, up and downwind 360's, Helitacks, waterstarts, clew first beach starts and basically as much 1-2-1 coaching as possible to ensure that there was plenty of progress. Using a mix of sails from 4.2's-6.4's, we had great conditions, with some of the WINDWISE crew trying out the new Kode 103, which like last years board, is one of the best all rounders you could ever hope to sail.
So a massive thanks to everyone who joined us and to Ivan, Snezha, Mahmoud & Mohamed for such truly great hospitality!
See you again next Sept for sure!
