Frequently asked questions

Can I give an introductory lesson or private lesson as a gift?  Yes you can. Send an email to with your personal details and those of the beneficiary. After payment of the invoice, you will receive a catamaranschool Zeehelden gift card, with the personal details of the beneficiary on it.
How many lessons do I need before I can sail on my own?  There is no simple answer to this question. The amount of lessons depends on your experience and learning abilities. The weather conditions also have great influence on safe coastal sailing. In most cases a novice multihull sailor will need at least three days of training before he or she can go safely out to sea without an instructor.
