This program is for the little ones in the age of 5 up to 8 years. Fun, safety and getting introduced to sailing come first. Together with peers and your instructor you will learn the basics of sailing in an Optimist. At the end of the course you can rig your own boat, you learn how to sit in a boat and how to position your sail. In addition to sailing we will also go on a voyage of discovery. You will get to know the Veerse Meer and the wind through treasure hunts, catching crabs, digging for treasures and all kinds of other games together with your own instructor and your group.
