25 Sept 2016
August and early September have been windy !  As usual, the wind-strength varies to make good use of all equipment from 7m sail on a slalom board to fully-powered with 4.5m sail on a freeride board.  On Friday it reached force 9 and both windsurf centres wisely closed for the day, in order to stay safe.  The wind has now settled down to normal levels and everyone is happy. Temperatures have been between 26c and 30c.

This is an ideal time for a holiday in the sun.  Not quite so busy and perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun, sea, mountains and friendly local tavernas. 
Our friends Nikos & Katerina start to have a few vacancies in their rental apartments in September/October after a very busy August.  Direct flights London to Heraklion are available with British Airways and Aegean.  Car hire is easy to arrange for arrival in Heraklion with MCar / Kafetzakis who have excellent cars, fully insured, very good prices and perfect service.  Let us know if we can help.

Great windsurfing for people of all levels. 
I was on a Fanatic Falcon 124 board with Tushingham X15 7m sail.

Very nice weather in June 2016 with temperatures between 30c and 34c, cloudless blue sky and warm sea. Hot when there is no wind but comfortable in the breeze.  Yesterday and today the wind is very strong indeed but should start easing off tomorrow.  There has been excellent windsurfing, especially last week.  T
he windsurf centres "Gone Surfing Crete" and "Freak Surf" are both fully operational

If you haven't planned your summer holiday and are fed up with the British weather, then this is the place to be !  Our friends still have some vacancies in their rental apartments and direct flights to Heraklion are also available with British Airways.  Car hire is easy to arrange.  Let us know if you'd like to enquire.
