Sailing lessons

Options for courses:

At Watersportcenter Sloterplas we have two course options: the Optimist for children, and the Valk for adults.

It is also possible to book a private lesson in the Valk, Laser or windsurfing!

Sailing course Optimist (8-12 years old)

The best way to learn how to sail is by practice. For younger children, an Optimist is the perfect boat. This lightweight boat with one sail responds directly to the wind and rudder. Therefore, young sailors will almost automatically discover the basics of sailing. The younger you start with sailing, the more easily you become familiar with the water.

Sailing course Valk (18+)

The Valk is a tour sailboat. The weight of the heavy keel provides stability and a steady course. The sheltered cockpit has plenty of room for the crew. The Valk is clearly more oriented towards comfort rather than speed. Ideal boats to experience wanderings. These boats can be rented almost everywhere in the Netherlands where sailing is possible.

Sailing course Laser Vago (18+)

The Laser Vago is the fastest boat in our fleet! Instead of a heavy keel, it has a light daggerboard, making the boat ideal for racing. You can reach intense speeds with these lightweight boats. That also means you have to keep your balance, don’t be afraid of getting wet!

Private lesson

If you want to have more flexibility in planning your lessons, book a private lesson! From beginners to experts, we always make a lesson tailored to your needs. You can book a private lesson in the Valk, Laser Vago or Pico. If you’re not afraid to get wet, you can book a windsurfing lesson!
