Fun DaySail Volendam - Hoorn return
The weather turns more favourable for sailing next weekend and we would like to make use of it. So we are organizing our next DaySail from Volendam to Hoorn return trip on Sunday.
You can check out the photo gallery of previous sailing daytrips to have an idea what to expect. No previous sailing experience is required.
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, excluding crew. The daytrip will start in Marinapark Volendam at 10.30 am. We will meet at the terrace Protected content facing the marina, 2 min walking from the bus stop Marinapark or the long-term parking behind the (new) Marinapark.
We will sail the treacherous waters of the Hoorense Hop and safely arrive at the VOC town of Hoorn around lunchtime. We will moor at the city centre and you will have the chance to discover the historic town.
There will be snacks and soft (cold/warm) drinks on board and a basic lunch will be provided during our stop in Hoorn.
In the afternoon we'll sail back to the Volendam Marinapark and upon arrival (around 7pm) we’ll have a toast together (ankerbier).
Life vests are available for safety. (maximum 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 a life vest. Swimming skills are preferred and sailing experience is welcome but not necessary. 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 and white sole shoes.
It will be fun!
Price: EUR 75,- p.p. to be paid in advance.
If you wish to participate you can send me a private mail Protected content and you will receive the payment instructions. Registration on this site by itself does not guarantee your participation. (full=full)
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,
