Hello Sailors,

As the Indian Summer is starting to show its sunny side we are planning another sailing daytrip on the Markermeer.
We realize it is short notice and it has to do with the changing weather forecast which looks quite promising for next Saturday for a nice autumn sail.

The boat is a 36 foot long Jeanneau Sun Odyssey which has a salon, kitchen, 2 cabins and a bathroom on board.

There are five places available for the trip. The daily trip will start with boarding in the NDSM at Amsterdam Marina at 10.30 and departing at 11h sharp. We will sail the IJ past Central Station and go thru the „Oranje Sluizen” lock at to the Markermeer and then put out the sails heading towards Pampus and then to Muiden for lunch.

There will be snacks and soft (cold/warm) drinks available on board and for lunch you'll get some salads and sandwiches (included in the price). In the afternoon we'll sail back to the Amsterdam Marina and upon arrival (around 4-5pm ) we’ll have a toast together (ankerbier).

Life vests are available for safety. (Max size is large) When we are sailing on the Markermeer and you want to go on the deck, out of the cockpit, you will be required to wear one. Some sailing experience and swimming skills are preferred. Due to the nature of this trip and for your own safety a basic level of fitness is required.

If you are new to sailing it is good to be aware that wind /weather conditions can change rapidly so we can experience some mild wind and easy sailing but also some stronger winds and waves and real sailing. Make sure to bring along several layers of clothing and preferably a wind and waterproof jacket.
It will be fun!

Price: EUR 75,- p.p. to be paid in advance

If the trip is cancelled because of weather conditions you will receive your full payment. In case you cancel your attendance for any reasons there is no refund.

Please be aware that there are certain risks that are unique to waterborne sports. Of course, with good planning and well trained captain then 99% of the time you’ll be enjoying one of the most exciting day trips you’ll ever experience. However, it’s good to be prepared with a suitable (sailing) travel insurance policy in the event of accidents and injuries incurred on board. Participating with this trip is at your own risk.

We are looking forward to seeing you on board,
