Rob is captain of the clipper Avondrood (Evening Red). He has extensive experience with groups and will be sailing for the 21st time this summer. “There’s never a dull moment,” he tells us enthusiastically, when asked about his long track record. He has been sailing the IJsselmeer and Wadden Sea for many years and knows exactly where to anchor for great swimming or a special evening in the middle of nature – with the mobile phones switched off.
Favourite sailing destination
The captain of the Avondrood enjoys sailing to destinations where few others venture. These include a lovely nature area between Lemmer and Stavoren, and the beach at Lemmer. But, according to Rob, the best destination is the Ketelmeer. One of the five small uninhabited islands in the IJssel estuary to be exact. It truly is a unique experience, claims Rob.
For foodlovers: new stove and BBQ
This captain did not spend twiddling his thumbs. The comfortable and attractive clipper the Avondrood now has a new professional gas stove in the well-equipped galley and a new barbecue on deck. All ingredients for great summer nights on deck with friends, family & food.
