Don\'t panic, Harty isn\'t going to expect you to improve your bottom turn at Ponta Preta (where even the PWA stars get rinsed). There are many lovely beaches to improve your wave riding and gybing without getting totally punished! It\'s also a very beautiful place and Sportif have TWO places available for the week\'s clinic due to last minute cancellations.

Over to Pete:

"Sal has been made famous by the bone crunching break Punta Preta but it actually offers so much more to all levels of windsurfer. The clinic is being staged in St Maria Bay where you have classic flat water free-riding leading into beautiful, non life threatening waves wrapping round a point. The clinic is both a general skills and introduction to waves course. If you’re happy sailing hooked in and in the straps on a sub 110 board, you’re in. More than that it’s a very cool place and the Morabeza where we stay is luxury personified"

WHEN: 23rd March for 7 nights (0955 flight from Gatwick) WHERE: Hotel Morabeza B & B in a twin room INCLUDED: 7 days board hire with Club Mistral, one week\'s teaching with Harty RETURN: 30th March (Gatwick 22:25)

COST: £1365
