"I've never been sailing before-but a girlfriend invited me to taste the experience - so this is my "Maidentrip""
Highlights (i.e. best things to do, memorable moments, etc.) :
The weather was not that good during the weekend. Sometimes the wind was blowing very hard. But there was a great "Teamspirit" which allowed our boatsman and the crew to go for it - in a safe way.
Quick tips/suggestions :
Best Way to Get Around (i.e. walking, driving, taxis, public transportation etc.) :
We went there by car (300 km). The boat was rented for a weekend and we explored the "Ijsselmeer" for many hours.
What It's Like:
We left Belgium early in the morning for a 300 km trip to Stavoren. Crossing "Le Plat Pays" is a jewel for the eye. We saw many "rainbows" - even triple ones (never saw it before). Once arrived we received our instructions and responsibilities by our friend - an experienced sailor. He explained to us how a sailboat works and how to keep it under control. It is engined by the wind. And oh Lord - there was more than enough of it. In the evening we harboured in typical, small Dutch places with nice restaurants.
The skipper and his lady! Thx to both
the crew had a great adventure on a trip in northern Netherlands !
Friesland - a country to see in the north - enjoy the many rainbows and the historical type of Farms !
Sailing is not without any risk. We saw this boat crashing the local rocks ! But thanks the lord - only injuries ! more travel advice
Sometimes you have to leave the boat and walk through little towns - typival dutch - like Woudsend. See the typical... more travel advice
