Owner and initiator of VARDI VELA CYPRUS SCHOOL

“… the sea and all the human activities around it have always been a part of me which has been reflected in the reality of my life since my childhood when I walk along the seashore in Shavei Zion, the place where I grew up.

At the beginning of my journey in the world of competitive sailing, I participated in many competitions and won many victories in the 420 and 470 models, including first place in Maccabiah in 1985 in Nahariya and more.

I then embarked on a major voyage around the world as skipper and plowed the Pacific and Atlantic oceans where I gained a lot of experience in challenging and unpredictable sailing conditions.

Continuing my path in the world of the sea, I started coaching competitive sailing teams and with great pride I can say that I brought many talented sailors to participate in national and international competitions.

At the same time, I opened the “North Gulf Divers” diving school in Eilat and acted as a senior instructor as a DIVE MASTER INSTRUCTOR.

In 2010 I opened the VARDI VELA sailing school where I taught hundreds of people how to be responsible and good skippers.

My many years of training in the field led me to the decision to join and cooperate with the sailing organization ISSA – International Sailing School Association. Since this decision we have jointly promoted training methods, written study materials and fostered and promoted the field of sailing in the world.

Today my great love for sailing and my partnership with ISSA in the sea world has led me to fulfill my dream in establishing VARDIVELA CYPRUS the professional sailing school in Cyprus.

Thanks to this school, I was able to close a circle and sail in all the oceans of the world.

This love of mine together with the many adventures and journeys I bring to expression and with their help teach those who come to the VARDIVELA CYPRUS school…”
