Splashweek Sailing

4 weeks during Summer Vacation

Sail in the fastest boats in our fleet! There are two sailers per boat, so maybe you already know someone who dares to go sailing with you. You will sail in the Laser Pico and Laser Vago. These are fast and sporty dinghies that have a risk of capsizing. But no need to worry, you will learn how to get the boat upright again!

Sailing at the Splashweeks

Are you between 12 and 16 years old, come sail in a Laser!

The Laser is a modern and fast 2-person dinghy, that suits both beginning sailors as more experienced sailors. The boat is full of modern techniques to make you go even faster. In the beginning of the week you will learn how to rig the boat, so the rest of the week you will be on the water in no time!

We have 2 types of Lasers in the Splashweek: the Laser Pico and Laser Vago. 

The Laser Pico is the ideal boat for the beginning sailor. You will sail with 2 persons in the boat, so perhaps you know a friend who likes to go with you!
The Laser Vago is the ideal boat for the more experienced sailor. Especially when there’s some wind you won’t be able to sit still. During the Splashweek you will learn how to sail in both boats. 

The activities are from Monday until Friday from 10am – 4pm. You have a lunch break (Mon-Thu) included, and on Friday we organize a picknick were everyone can bring something to eat!
