Children’s sailing camp

Children’s sailing camp

Sailing at Watersportvereniging Bestevaer.

Are you bored during the summer holidays and are you between 8 and 13 years old? Then think about sailing for a week.

The water at our club is very suitable for teaching children, small sheltered bowls,  for the untrained sailor in the one-man sailboat the “optimist”. There is an open connection to the IJsselmeer for the older youth and the advanced.

We then sail with new RS Zests or in the Splash.

Experienced young sailors give the instruction in groups of up to 16 participants. Of course you can also register individually via our website

The summer sailing weeks in 2022 are from 18 to 22 July, 25 to 29 July, 15 to 19 August and from 22 to 26 August.

These weeks are intended for all children who like to learn to sail or want to learn to sail even better. We teach according to the CWO system. We sail in a great location, a sheltered area, with a direct connection to the IJsselmeer. If you are not afraid to get a little wet, sign up! Young people who have already participated are of course also very welcome. The children are therefore awarded a diploma or progress report.

In addition, we are also offering extra lessons this year, these lessons are also new and intended to give children who really enjoy it the chance to sail as much as they want. You can register your child for these lessons by sending an email to Rates for the extra lessons are:

2 hours private lesson € 50.00 p.p
2 hours lesson 2+ persons € 30.00 p.p

All information can be found on our website:
