I have been a member of CNCE for 20 years now, focussing my sailing activities on three strands: dinghy sailing, yacht sailing, and tall-ship sailing. For ten years now, I have been serving the club as a coach for "Valk" boats, mainly on Veerse Meer in the Netherlands. I enjoy Valk sailing very much as a very direct yet safe way to experience how a sailing-boat functions. It is a good basis for any "upstream" sailing activities on bigger boats, and fun indeed!
