Sailing school

“Learn to sail in the north of the Netherlands”

Do you want to learn to sail? Then discover the possibilities at our sailing school at the Leekstermeer; the nicest sailing school in the Northern Netherlands. Here you can take group lessons as well as private lessons. Follow a sailing course in an Optimist, Valk or in a Laser Pico. Every year we have about 500 students. We are happy to teach you the basics of sailing and windsurfing and help you improve the technique. Our instructors are ready for you in all weathers! Note: Once you have caught the sailing virus, you will not get rid of it!

Why our sailing school?

  • Small-scale, but professional school with the right equipment and knowledge in-house.
  • Personal attention from enthusiastic, experienced and committed instructors.
  • The Leekstermeer is not very deep, ideal for novice sailors or windsurfers.
