Sailing Instructor Level 3

Level 3 Sailing Instructor Courses are the right choice for all of our Level 2 Instructors who like to take their teaching and own Sailing skills to a higher level. During those courses, we focus on the technique of intermediate and advanced SUP manouvers and how to teach them professionally. 

Level 3 Instructors are Sailing experts with a very high own riding level and a deep understanding for complex movements. Their methodical skills and experience make them the true experts on the beach!

 


For the course:

  • VDWS Instructor License
  • VDWS membership
  • Advanced sailing skills
  • teaching experience

For the license qualification:

  • practical exam at the end of the Level 3 Instructor seminar

Please note:
Even if you don't have a sufficient level yet and haven't mastered the topic of the training (yet), you are still welcome to participate. Your participation will then be considered as a license extension (and not as a Level 3 completion!).
