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 sailing course optimist the kids are playfully being taught sailing in these ideal boats. The minimum age is 7 years old and a swimming diploma is compulsory. The course consists of four periods of two hours divided over four 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 the kids, under supervision, can be practise.
Sailing course valk
From the age of 12 years and older we give a sailing course valk. The valk is a sailing boat with a gaff rig and a sailing surface of 16 m². The valk is a stable and secure instruction boat. The course consists of four periods of three hours, a total of 12 hours. During the courses the participants are taught the basic principals of sailing, such as trim, moor and steer the boat as well as the sailing positions. You can also get together in a boat with your family (maximum 4 persons).
