Learn the basics of sailing within three days
Are you not able to sail or surf, but would you like to? During the summer holiday, Ascension and Whitsunday you can take part in sailing courses at De Kuilart; optimist courses, valk courses or surfing courses (surfing only in July & August). During the preseason and late season courses are also given, but only when there is sufficient interest (2 persons per course). Certified instructors teach you the basics of sailing and surfing within three days.
Sailing course optimist
Lots of good sailers often started in an optimist, after all something learned at an early age will be easy when one is old(er)! During the course the kids are playfully being taught sailing in these ideal boats. The minimum age is 8 years old and a swimming diploma is compulsory. The course consists of 6 periods of 2 hours, divided over 3 days. Extra attention is paid to the basics such as steering, use of the sail and use of the boat itself. The water of Holiday Park De Kuilart is a safe area where, under supervision, can be practised. Click here for more information.
