A lovely day of sailing on the Frisian lakes

The valk is an open sailing boat with a large cockpit, appropriate for 2 to 5 persons. This universal type of boat is stable, has excellent sailing qualities and also has a gaff rig. The valk is often used for sailing courses, but is also ideal for sailers who want to combine sailing with a good time. An ideal sailing boat for touring.

Would you prefer a valk with roller jib? From 2019 on we have five valk boats with roller jib. You can book your valk with roller jib here.

Sailing experience is a must

You can rent a valk provided that you are able to sail independently and responsibly. A certain kind of sailing experience is not a luxury, especially not when the hard wind gets stronger on de Fluessen (nearest lake, and largest lake of Friesland).
