Hello from Simon
Simon Winkley is a local windsurfer and wind/wing foiler and a friend of QM who served as our Sailing Manager for 10 years before pursuing a freelance career in 2011. He has been teaching windsurfing all over the world for 25 years and, as an appointed RYA Advanced Windsurf and Sailing Trainer, runs RYA instructor courses of al levels. As well as delivering WINDsurf/foil and WINGsurf/foil lessons at QM, he runs overseas clinics with Sportif, UK clinics in Weymouth and has published over 30 travel and technique articles in several magazines.
Simon loves to get out on the water in any conditions. The core of his windsurfing is freeride/freewave and this keeps him closely connected to the people he coaches. He is a very down-to-earth and patient person and makes sure that all of his sessions are fun and engaging whilst helping people to move their skills forward within a social windsurfing group.
Simon will be running two on-water windsurfing coaching days and presenting an evening talk at QM.
