It has been a while since we last sent our news letter so we thought we would update you on what has been going on at Colona Watersports.
New centre in Sharm El Sheikh
From 1st January 2007 we have a kite centre in Sharm El Sheikh, located in Nabq, just north of the airport, on the same coast line as Dahab, famous for its good wind condition.
For those of you who been visiting Colona Watersports in Sharm we would like to inform you that as of 1st July we moved location to the neighboring Regency Plaza Hotel, a really nice Hotel with all facilities that you might need. Check it out: www.regencyplazasharm.com
At the Regency Plaza Hotel we have a brand new centre building and very soon the internet will be connected so that we can install our weather station and camera.
Kevin Biles and Diane Gainford are our partners in Sharm and they are looking forward to welcome you there. Contact Kev & Diane: firstname.lastname@example.org
Colona Watersports Hurghada 5th anniversary:
Time passes quickly and now it is 5 years since we opened Colona Watersports in Hurghada. We celebrated this occasion with renovating our shop and office; you might remember how small and crammed it was. We broke through the back wall and extended the building backwards and doubled the area. Now we have a separate shop section and the office in the back.
Of course we threw a party as well, on June 3rd about 80 persons joined us for a nice barbeque at the centre and some good music played by our own Jessica and our DJ friends from Ministry of Sound.
New Colona Watersports Web Site:
After 5 years it was time for a change, the web site looked old and stale so we contracted a web design company to help us out, instead of doing it ourselves, and we are very pleased with the result. We feel that the site looks much nicer and is more alive than before. The content is similar but we have added our Hurghada out and about guide and of course the Sharm El Sheikh part. The site will continue to grow with more gallery content and a separate video galley in the future. Have a look and let us know what you think: www.colonawatersports.com
Mark Shinn Kiteboarding Clinics
For the third year in a row we had the pleasure of having Mark Shinn here, conducting his Kiteboarding Clinics. This time we did 2 clinics and 15 riders joined to learn from and ride with Mark Shinn. The wind was great for the entire period and the riders enjoyed themselves to the fullest.
IKO Instructor Training Courses
Yes we still do them. In April IKO Examiner Neil Godbold was here and trained 8 instructor candidates. All of them passed! We are planning to do 2 ITC�s again in October, the dates will be posted on the web site as son as they are finalized.
Exclusive Ministry of Sound VIP Club Cards
Thanks to Ministry of Sound Red Sea we give all our guests a VIP club card on arrival. This card is exclusive to Colona Watersports guests and entitles you to discount on food and drinks in all Ministry of Sound, Hed Kandi and Papas outlets as well as free entrance to the Ministry of Sound Beach Club
With this we wish you good winds and a great kiteboarding summer. We hope to see you here again soon!
Bengan, Jessica and the rest of the Colona Watersports team.
