A Start Sailing day is the perfect activity for a special occasion or maybe just a fun day out on the water. Come on board of one of our yachts for a day, and get an introduction to sailing and navigation. You will be involved in steering, sail trimming, navigation and rope work.  We can have lunch on the water or in one of the nice harbours in our area. After this Start Sailing day, you'll sure be caught by the sailing bug, and we'll discuss with you how you can develop your sailing skills and turn this into an exciting hobby.

Join us on one of our C-MASTERS yachts for a day of sailing on the beautiful water of Zeeland. Just send us an enquiry, and we'll make your Start Sailing day a great start of your sailing passion.

Want to know what training programs are best for you?


Our training courses are a great way to develop your sailing and navigation skills. All over the world lots of sailors follow the RYA program with certificates all the way from the Essential Navigation course to the highest levels of Yachtmaster.

As Yachtmaster Instructors we have learned that just having a certificate may not always be enough to become a confident skipper, and should be complemented with practical experience, technical / nautical skills and with plenty of miles.

To help our clients develop these skills and build up more specific experience, we have created a range of C-MASTERS practical trainings to enrich the RYA courses. Selecting the best training program for you might involve a mix of RYA and C-MASTERS trainings, and is one that we can best tailor on the basis of an assessment.

During two days, we'll assess your practical and theoretical skills in several situations, both during daytime and at night. What better way to define a programme to build and improve your skills? Ths two-day assessment is highly recommended for Yachtmaster candidates and anyone who intends to make sailing a profession.
