Advance information - website in progress....
The sailing and boating club "Vent du Sud - Southwind" was created in 2011 to promote discovery of the nautical world, nautical sports, training and related outdoor activities, including environmental education and training. The club is registered in France and based in Port Saint Cyprien, the most important port in the Golfe du Lion, Languedoc Roussillon.
When you join us as a guest or crew or taking a sailing course with us, whether on a day sail or a week long cruise, you enable us to offer disadvantaged young people an introduction to the maritime world, including seamanship training and environmental awareness trips. We are a registered non-profit, and any revenue from paid activites are fully applied towards our mission.
