Mark Warner to launch foiling with boards not swords. Read more…  

Sporty holiday operator Mark Warner will be offering dinghy and  windsurf  foiling for summer 2018 at Lakitira Beach Resort in Kos and Levante Beach Resort in Rhodes.

Foiling is an exciting new aspect to dinghy sailing and windsurfing where riders attain enough speed to activate lift from Hydrofoils attached to the dagger board & rudder (for dinghies) or fin (for windsurfing) that will push the dinghy hull or windsurf board out of the water, reducing drag and increasing speed over the water.

Foiling is an advanced style of sailing and windsurfing and so for our guests to take part, they must already hold an RYA level 2 qualification or equivalent with experience in Lasers/ RS Aero’s for dinghy foiling.

In windsurfing, guests will be expected to have an RYA Intermediate Planning or equivalent qualification and be comfortable in the foot straps and a harness. We will run entry level courses in resort for those who want to become more advanced before turning to Foiling.

Included in the cost of the holiday MW  offer guests the usual introduction and refresher clinics during the week along with a foiling theory session. This will help guests to get a taster for the new sport.

For those who are keen to get on board and progress, MW will be running RYA courses ‘Intro to Foiling’ which can be pre-booked from February next year before departure or booked in resort and will cost approx. €60 per three hours, teaching launching and landing, pumping and take off.

Prices start from just £579pp

Mark Warner holidaymakers get free childcare, a huge range of free watersport activities, cycling, tennis and fitness classes will keep every individual entertained during the long summer and all MW resorts are beach resorts soft sands and crystal blue waters as well as having family and adult areas to lounge around. Flights are included, with transfers and half/full board dining options with free tennis, biking and sailing and surfing and fitness classes.
