The first Club Vass Diva Week of 2009 proved to be a huge success, with 23 lovely ladies of all ages and abilities taking part. We started off fairly gently with a light wind Monday, doing ‘follow my leader’ exercises out on the water to get back into it. This was followed by our Welcome meal and drinks in the evening. Then Tuesday saw the crosshore kick in for some planing and waterstarting action. We finished up with a few drinks up in the cocktail bar followed by a delicious meal laid on by our chefs especially for the Diva’s.

The mornings consisted of everything from yoga and ‘island survival’ classes to mountain biking and pilates/tai chi to music! Dani, our mountain bike guide did a fantastic job taking all the girls out biking every morning and evening. A big thank you to Dani!

The wind stayed with us throughout the rest of the week, with it going crazy on our last teaching day, Friday. We’re talking 3.3m weather for me and the advanced Diva’s! we rounded off the week with the infamous Club Vass BBQ with the theme of ‘P Party’ all the girls made a fantastic effort with pussy cats, pirates, playboy bunnies and lots of pink! The boys performed for us too, giving the girls, especially Caroline (she’s getting married!) a treat with the highly entertaining ‘plate dance!’

We had our prize giving ceremony for the Diva’s with some lovely prizes from Animal and Neil Pryde. Our top Diva’s were Jackie, Belinda, Elsa, Sarah, Chuck, Shelagh, Louise and Fiona. All in all it was a great week, thank you so much to Tash, Ellie and Charlene for instructing and a massive thanks to Boardwise for who supplied us all with limited edition ‘Boardwise Diva’ T-shirts!

Club Vass Diva Weeks are all about introducing the sport of windsurfing to ladies across all ages and keeping the girls already doing it motivated with higher level instruction. It’s also a lot of fun with of extra activities, more teaching time on the water and simulator sessions on land, and there’s lots of socials and evenings out happening too.

Our next Diva week is on the 6th of September in Vass and then a Dahab Diva Week on the 11th of October. Check out for more info and pictures, see you in September!
