Anyone thinking of heading out to Margarita for the traditional OMWC gathering this year? Fancy it myself and flexible on dates around Feb/March.

Hi Duncan,
Yep, could be interseted in Margarita, would need some tuition tho.
Who were you thinking of going with, Cribby? Date not too much of an issue, but would need to avoid half term; second week in Feb.

Yeah Margarita!! I'm tempted by the Kribby Krash Kourse in Kamikaze again, but not sure at this point my feet will be ready for this, and I might not know until it's full. Dilemma! I'm sure Dunco won't be Kribbying, content with his own speshul tuition :) Guy is doing two 1 week things as well as a 2 week (across the 1 week sessions) this year, which is good if you can't do 2 weeks.

Could somebody let me know where/what we would go for as in venue etc. I might be up for it depending on dates but having not been before would like to check out conditions/location etc. Thanks, Kathy

Thanks for comments. I would guess end of Feb early March would be favorate, either with Guy C for those wanting tuition or Club Marg for those who don't (they seem to work out cheaper for the package than Mistral - and do actually include tuition if you want some but not the full on Cribbing)

Margarita is an easy place to sail. Wind tends to build during the day so you pick your time and all the centres are on a small bit of beach. All the hotels are clustered behind them. You can walk everywhere and it's a chilled out vibe. 10 hour flight but 10 minute transfer to resort.

Anyone else?

Im new to the club but would be intereseted in tagging along! Late Feb, early March would be good for me.

Dear All,

I've just joined the club and would be very interested in a trip to Marg! What tour operators are recommended?


Added by Duncan on 07/01/08

Thanks for the comments. I tend to use Club Margarita as they seem to work out cheapest for the whole package, include video tuition as part of the price and are nice guys, most of whom I know from previous seasons (I even once worked with Benny!)

To try and firm things up a bit who would be up for a trip leaving on the 24th of Feb (assuming availability). You can do one or two weeks now as it's a weekly direct flight, on a Sunday.

Current cost 849 for one week, 1089 for two weeks, B and B including kit and tuition. Living costs are pretty cheap there too.

If you fancy it post and if there are a few we can make a few calls.

Sounding good. I would not be able to go on on the 24th Feb though, would need to be the week after for me. But I know how difficult it is to co-ordinate groups and understand you need to go with the majority so ignore me if this messes it up.

Is this the all-talk-no-action-sit-on-the-beach-club or what? I take it no-ones going...even Duncan. Well I had a f**k it moment and booked to go on 24/2 for a week. Taking kit so can sail after the centres close and the crowds have died down. Having been before its the perfect warm up for the season, getting away during the coldest month of the year. Banish those winter blues. Any more takers?

This time I *will* get my sodding gybes sorted!
