What we’ll do

We will arrange a time on which we´ll meet each other. I will tell you the history of the ship and the area you´re staying in. Then we will sail on the Westeinderlake for a couple of hours and you´ll experience the area as no other tourist will! You can see the unique and undiscovered spot right below the busy districts of Amsterdam and give you a wonderful experience.

What else you should know

- Never sailed before? No problem, sailing experience is not required. - The ship is fully equipped: cold and hot running water, gas stove and oven, toilet, etc. - Put on comfortable clothes.

What I’ll provide

Soft drinks
In the evening we will offer a special typical Dutch autumn meal. Simple but very tasteful. We sail to a restaurant to pick up the warm dishes. We will have dinner in a relaxed atmosphere on board of the ship.

What to bring

Casual clothing, warm coat depending on the weather conditions
