Set the sails

Let your holiday begin! Sailing fanatically, taking time to explore an island, or standing clear of the water a sandbank? After a short sailing instruction, you will set sail. Simply sit back and relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. A weekend, a midweek, or a week…it’s up to you!

Exploring the Waddenzee, the Ijsselmeer, or the Frisian lakes

Have you ever thought of a sailing vacation to the Wadden islands? Island hopping, spotting seals, or – if the conditions are favourable – standing clear of the water on the Wadden. Or, explore the former Zuiderzee and enjoy your sailing vacation on the Ijsselmeer. And also the Frisian lakes can offer you something entirely different.

Sailing vacation

Zuiderzee museum, shopping in Amsterdam, or cycling on Terschelling

You can simply take your accommodation with you. Go for a shopping trip or a drink in Amsterdam, pay a visit to the Zuiderzee museum in Enkhuizen, to Ecomare on Texel, or rent a bicycle on Terschelling. You can even visit the historical towns Elburg or Volendam. Have a nice walking tour, enjoy culture, or sail sportily. You decide!

Full board or taking care of the catering yourselves?

During your sailing vacation you can cook yourselves in the galley on board. You can also indulge yourselves and order catering. The meals, from simple dishes to extensive four-course dinners, will be prepared on board by a chef.
