Do you already have enough sailing experience?

If you already have some experience with driving a boat, you do not need to book a sailing instruction. Every boat is different and therefore we will explain in as much detail as possible what you can expect from the boat you have booked. Upon arrival you will get an explanation of the watermap and the boat manual. After that we will go on board to discuss all technical and operating instructions. You will also receive the boardbook digitally 4 weeks in advance, so that you can prepare already at home.

Sailing instruction (paid)

In the sailing instruction, which you and your crew receive prior to the sailing holiday, we teach everyone what to expect. We are going to practise mooring, driving the bow thruster, turning, what to do in busy situations etc. We will teach you everything you need to leave Koudum safely!

All the information you need to read through at home.
Before you leave, we will send you all the information you need about the booked boat by e-mail. This includes: the inventory list and the board book about the ship. Upon arrival you will receive the comprehensive board book with some sailing tips etc.
