Even though the following might sound like an advertisement for Sail & Surf in Port de Pollença, I am still going to write it.
Sail & Surf is a German sailing and wind surfing school located in north east Mallorca. They offer a vast variety of boats but also apartments, hotel rooms, food, events for kids and a lot more. I found them surfing the Internet looking for basic sailing lessons in Mallorca. As they were also present in 2011’s Hanseboot, we took the chance to talk to Olliver Ochse – one of their sailing teachers and station managers – in person.
Finally, we booked one of their apartments for 6 with an awesome roof terrace – directly located on the beach, basic sailing lessons – 5 days course with a regatta at the end – and the family and friends trip: Bavaria 46 with skipper for whole 7 days cruising in the Mediterranean. They arranged for everything including the airport transfer and we had a very warm welcome – and warm is not limited to the sun.
They offer the right “thing” and boat for everyone – from beginners to advanced and sportive regatta sailing.
I totally recommend this for families as well, even if not everyone likes to sail or skills are completely different. They offer the right “thing” and boat for everyone – from beginners to advanced and sportive regatta sailing. If you don’t like to go sailing or surfing at all, there is still the beautiful island with its fabulous nature and great sights. The family could separate at 9am meet for lunch, have fun on their own until 5pm an spend the rest of the day together. Sail & Surf even arranges regular events for just the kids like bathing cruises with sailboats, sightseeing, barbecues etc. etc.
This place and the people of the school are so beautiful, I recommend Sail & Surf to everyone who is even just remotely interested. They also offer their services in English and Spanish.
Thank you Gottfried, Anna and Team! We will be back…
