Welcome to our C-MASTERS Training Centre in the Netherlands



We offer a comprehensive program of RYA sailing and navigation courses, supplemented with our own experience builders and mile builders. Using this combination of complementary theoretical and practical training modules, we will coach you all the way from your first sailing experience to become a confident experienced offshore skipper. 

In addition, we offer several special C-MASTERclasses for skill building on hands-on topics such as radar, boat handling and celestial navigation.

We are lucky to have the Oosterschelde estuary as our sailing area. It is a beautiful and exciting tidal sailing area with access to open sea for offshore sailing to England, Belgium and anywhere you'd like us to take you. 

Our training centre is based at Van der Rest Nautic Marina, located in Kats and Wemeldinge in The Netherlands.
