WOW - June is proving to be the busiest we've ever had. Which is great. HAPPY DAYS!
We love to be busy!
In addition to our everyday hires and lessons we have a lot of other exciting activities going on:
1) Summer Christmas
2) Work Experience Students
3) Senior Instructor Training
4) Windsurf Instructor Course
5) Multi-Activity Course
6) The Amanzoe Hotel is in full swing
SUMMER CHRISTMAS was great fun. We all dressed in our Sunday best, played some Christmas games at the house and then headed to the wonderful Vliho Yacht Club for a full Christmas Dinner. And of course we also got presents from Santa, including shiny blue leggings for Archie, Giant Straws for Nat and the biggest Watermelon in Greece for Amy. Which she enjoyed carrying home!
Our WORK EXPERIENCE students have been amazing this summer. Ellen & Iona joined us at the start of the summer and before they went home in June, even managed to pass their Windsurf Instructor course. Ed & Dom were next, only a 2 week placement, but still learnt lots and have both been offered work in the future because they had the perfect balance of a friendly yet professional work ethic. Last to join us was Abby, who worked tirelessly on the beach and was a real star when it came to Safety Chats and welcoming the guests with a smile. Abby also managed to get her Powerboat level 2 qualification before heading home. All wonderful people that we've enjoyed having on the team.
Jess, one of our Amanzoe Team, trained hard this month to become an RYA SENIOR INSTRUCTOR. After weeks of hard graft Jess flew back to the UK and passed her course with flying colours (or maybe 'sailing' colours). Well done Jess!!
The first WINDSURF INSTRUCTOR course of the season finished this month and we are proud to say that all of our students passed the course. Many were super keen and have gone straight in to work, which is great. We love helping people join our industry, we know how rewarding a job in watersports can be - and how much fun - so the more people that become instructors the better. The next instructor course starts on the 26th August.
This years 3 week MULTI ACTIVITY course starts in June and so far has been a great success. Perfect wind and sun every day, ideal for all the sports we teach. All the students have gained their Start Windsurf Certificate, their RYA First Aid and their Powerboat Level 2......and there's still plenty more to come.
The AMANZOE HOTEL is where our new 2018 beach base is. We opened there is May, but this month the centre has really begun to shine. The hotel is full and all the brand new windsurf kit has arrived. Plus we have started to teach Seabobbing there, which is so much fun. Working here is a real treat for us and we love every minute of it. The hotel is in a beautiful rural location with stunning views all around as you drive down the hotel road. Well worth a visit if you are in the Peloponnese this summer.
BRING ON AUGUST when we hope to be even busier and, if possible, even happier!
