Your weekend away with family or friends

First of all: welcome aboard! You'll get to know the ship and its crew. Together you will discuss how you can fill in the sailing trip. This depends on your wishes, the weather and the wind. You don't need any experience at all. Along the way, the crew will teach you how to hoist the sails, navigate, tack and tie knots. Don't want to be active? You can also just read a book, catch up with your family or friends, play games or simply day dream, watching the horizon, listening to the rippling water. 

Sail, experience and explore

Are you ashore in one of the charming harbour towns of the IJsselmeer?  Enjoy drinks on a terrace, go shopping or dive into the nightlife. On the Wadden, it's possible to go mudflat hiking, walk along the beach or explore an island by bike. To name just a few options. It's your family weekend or weekend away with friends. It's your sailing experience.

Food and drinks on a sailing ship

During the sailing trip, your family or friends can cook everything themselves in the completely equipped kitchen of the ship. You can bring your own groceries or have them delivered on your group accommodation before it departs. 

Cooking or having it cooked

Maybe a nice alternative: have your meals prepared by a ship's cook. A very relaxed choice, when there are no kitchen princes or princesses in your group. You can choose from several catering options. Another option: go for all-inclusive, for a fixed price per person. We are happy to tell you all about them.
