What you'll do
At 09.00 in the morning I will pick you up by car at Rotterdam Alexander railwaystion. From there we will travel 35 minutes to the marina at Noordschans. There we will board ‘Parel’ (Pearl) a 6 metre sailing ship with small cabin. You will be welcomed with a drink & some snacks. (Drinks, lunch & snacks are included) At about 10.30 we will hoist the sails and enjoy the wind and waves at the vast Hollands Diep. If you like, you can grab the rudder and steer the boat. Or just enjoy the views or a nice conversation. If we have good winds, we will be in the beautiful historic town of Willemstad at around 12.00. There I will prepare a skippers lunch with soup, bread and various kinds of Dutch cheese. After lunch there will be time to discover the the little town, see the fortifications and old warehouses or have a walk along the harbour. At 13.30 we will be sailing back to Noordschans. If the weather allows it, we can anchor somewhere on the way and have a swim and/or a drink. At 15.30 I will drive you back to Rotterdam Alexander railwaystation where we will arrive at 16.30.
For over 20 years I’ve been sailing with guests on the Dutch waters. I love sailing adventures; being in nature, at home on the water, and finding nice anchor spots, swimming or visiting an old little town. My last adventure was taking my family on a journey from Holland all the way to the Mediterreanean Sea. I’ve been a sailing instructor for many years and love to teach you sailing if you like!
