We are excited to welcome you on board for a Fun Day Sail experience on the IJsselmeer. The trip will begin in Volendam Marina. Volendam is 20min drive away from Amsterdam and easily accessible by public transport. No previous sailing experience is required but for your own safety a basic level of fitness and mobility is necessary. The boat is a 36 foot long Jeanneau Sun Odyssey which has a salon, kitchen, 2 cabins and a bathroom on board. There will be snacks and soft (cold/warm) drinks available on board. As Volendam is situated on the Markermeer we can directly open sails and set course to the other side of the Markermeer, nature reserve Oostvaardersdiep. You'll have some time to discover the visitor centre and surroundings on foot and thereafter we offer a basic lunch on board. After lunch we'll sail back and upon arrival we can have a toast together (ankerbier). Here are some video's to get an impression of the day: https://youtu.be/sgLq-XeaM3M ; https://youtu.be/UB2Q0uGuo30 The bus stop for the return is 5 min walk away from the Marina or you can also decide to stay a bit longer and enjoy the Volendamse Dijk with traditional shops and foodstals.
We are Erik & Monika and started offering day-sail trips last year for expats, and are excited to welcome AirBnB guests on board. We love sharing our passion for water with others in a safe and comfortable way and we will make sure that we will have a great time together. About me, I am a trained sailing instructor. I was born on a houseboat and have been sailing since I was four years old. I have sailed all over the Netherlands and especially on the IJsselmeer. I have crossed the gulf of Biscay two times and have my own 36 foot sailing boat which I maintain and operate myself.
Basic Sandwich Lunch. Healthy Snacks
Tea, soft drinks, water. During the sailing we do not offer alcoholic drinks for your safety. At the return to the Marina…
Sailing to Markermeer
You can enjoy a sailing trip from Volendam out on the Markermeer and return to Volendam. The traditional Dutch places on the lake are well-known for their history and regional products (cheese, fish, saucage and the famous cloggs.) They are close to Amsterdam but you will get to know a totally different side of the Dutch culture. During sailing you will feel connected to nature and experience the elements close by.
