The owner

Zeilschool Zuidlaardermeer has been taking care of holiday weeks for over 35 years. From those 35 years I have been helping myself for 30 years. From competition sailing I started as a dinghy and surfing instructor, later on as head instructor and lastly as company director. I’ve been the owner Since 1991, first with a companion but since 1999 completely independent.

All ideas about teaching, holiday weeks, material and being an instructor, shortly: over the years I have been able to shape the sailing school the way it is supposed to be and am still busy with developing new things.

It is fun to notice that the students come back to sail every year (75% comes back) or even teach nowadays. My first students from 1980 currently bring their kids here for a holiday week. I see this as a huge compliment and a confirmation for our ideas about taking care of the weeks, where safety, quality, personality and most of all fun are the most important things.

The accommodation

The sailing school can be found at "Landal Waterpark de Bloemert". A beautiful park provided with a marina, a huge bungalow park, midget golf course, a nice pavilion and so much more. On the most beautiful place of the park, right near the lake you will find the sailing school. Room enough for a great holiday in and surrounding the clean shallow waters of the Zuidlaardermeer.

As a student you will live in our extremely new accommodation "de Zuidkaap" for a week. In this building you will vind a big recreation room (with a beautiful view on the lake) and a half opened kitchen (so you can see and smell all of the delicious food that is being prepared). With nice weather we will eat outside on our, half above water hanging, veranda.

Instructors

On of the most important parts of the succes in the holiday are the employees. Young people who are selected on water sports technical and personal qualities. In addition to conveying their passion for water sports, they find it a challenge every week to join all children quickly into one large group.

All instructors who teach have a CWO instructor diploma. In addition, our instructor training provides things such as limited first aid, didactics, and dealing with children. Instructors are encouraged to continue learning and obtain higher diplomas. There are always coaches present during the lesson weeks to support the last.

We will make sure of an unforgettable time!

CWO

Our sailing school is connected to the national organisation Commissie Watersport Opleidingen (CWO).

De foundation CWO is a collaboration of the ANWB, the Watersportverbond and the HISWA. This foundation puts the goal of a uniform diploma system for voluntarily sailing education and keep this standing. There are diplomas for almost any water sport discipline (e.g.: keelboat sailing, youth sailing, sea sailing, surfing etc.).

CWO also sets requirements to boats, surfboards, other materials and safety for contestants.. A CWO-school takes care of good education and features diplomatic instructors.
