Red Sea Boat Safari
We say it every year, but nothing quite matches the heady mix of drifting through the most absurdly coloured waters, the conviviality of boat life, the peace and quiet, night skies lit up only by the stars and distant gas flares, freshly caught fish, snorkeling in one of the world’s finest aquariums, dolphins, phosphorescents, being rocked and hummed to sleep by the soporific sound of waves lapping against the hull, and waking to the sweet music of wind whistling and the halyards tapping out their upbeat rythm. And to top it all off there’ll be plenty of kiting and oodles of coaching.
The plan is to fly out on the Saturday to Hurghada, go straight to the boat for dinner and some sleep, before waking and setting sail on Sunday morning. We’ll then be cruising around various beautiful flat water spots, where and when will depend on wind and conditions. The idea is to squeeze in as much kiting and coaching up until we return the following Saturday, before catching the flight home!
Once again we’ll have Philou as our captain, and he knows these waters and winds better than anyone, being the original kitesurf adventurer around these parts. Home for the week will be The Sea King, a 27m motor yacht, with twin cabins, air con and plenty of deck space. This year it is possible to grab a single for 2 lucky guests if you’d prefer. Otherwise being a live aboard with limited space,the rest of the rooms must be shared.
Coaching will be 6 days of CK Performance, plenty of whipping, whooping and improving. We have a screen for video de-briefs and we’ll most likely squeeze in one down-winder too. We do require a minimum ability to kite upwind and happily relaunch your kite for this trip as we’ll be kiting in flat but offshore conditions, and for us to share our knowledge we’ll need to see plenty of you. However there is rescue so no need to hold back on the learning front.

Cost for 7 nights all in and 6 days coaching sharing a twin cabin is TBC
