Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced sailor, you can organise holidays that include sailing lessons. "You'll start with the basics that are taught on the beach," explains Christian Hilaire, Sports Expert for Club Med. "You'll then head out sea to put theory into practise. Lessons are adapted to every level: beginner, experienced, expert... Same goes for windsurfing," he adds.
As for sailing, he highly recommends Bodrum Palmiye in Turkey. "The wind is steady and the equipment perfectly adapted. You could also try a funboard - a windsurf hybrid that has added buoyancy. A technical sport that requires a good wind."
If breakneck speeds are your thing, then you'll find numerous fast water sports options that can be included in your package. Wakeboarding involves being towed by a boat for an adrenalin-pumping ride. Ditto for waterskiing, where you can choose between bi or mono-skis. At Cefalù, kitesurfing (only available during summer at an extra cost) and motorised surfing will give you a taste of the Mediterranean's impressive swells. As for surfing courses*, Bali in Indonesia has superb waves.
