Your Training Schedule

Training is six days per week, starting at 10 am and running to 5 pm with one hour for lunch. You also have the option of participating in two fitness sessions each week, including mountain biking, yoga, swimming, circuit training, and SUP. The training day concludes at 5 pm with a debriefing on the day’s events. After this, you can use the equipment alone or with fellow students until the sun goes down!

Saturday is your day off, and many students choose to explore the island of Lefkada or head into Vassaliki town. After dark, the town’s bars, cafes, and restaurants come alive, providing plenty of opportunities for socialising. Club Vass also put on regular BBQs, which have become legendary with students and instructors over the years. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.

Our training programmes have proved so popular that many Watersports Nomad students decide to spend the remainder of the season in Greece rather than return home.
