Windy week at the palace

A trip to Greece invarably conjures thoughts of mythological stories, and when Dawn Hinsley spent a week on the island of Lemnos at Neilson’s Portomyrina Palace, she had no doubt she was in the company of the wind gods

1 Choosing the holiday

I’d just passed my dinghy sailing certificate and now I wanted warm waters to practise (and capsize) in

2 Windsurfing lessons

Flying along with a big grin on my face, the perfect reward for all my efforts

3 Sailing at last

The beach staff and instructors would also be immediately on hand to guide you back in when the time came

4 All in all

I can’t deny that I was disappointed by the weather, or should I say the excess of it
