Dear sailors,

We will be taking advantage of the long Pfingsten (Whit Sunday) weekend to enjoy a relaxing time on the water.

This time we will be heading to Ijselmeer, a mecca for sailors in Holland. We will leave Cologne on Friday evening after work and drive to the Netherlands. We will spend Friday night in the marina on the boat. We will then sail for three consecutive days. We will be spending the evenings in the marinas with a chance to explore cute coastal towns. Breakfast and lunches will be on the boat, dinners at restaurants on shore. We will drive back to Cologne on Monday evening.

Our boat will have 3 cabins and you will be sharing a cabin with another participant. We will be in total 6 people on the boat: I as the skipper, my wife and 4 more participants. Former sailing experience is very welcome but not necessary. Just willingness to enjoy sailing and to help with a few things on board would be enough. If you are willing to take an active part in sailing, I'd be happy to involve you in the action.

We will do car pooling from Köln/Düsseldorf to get to Ijselmeer. The price of transportation is not included as the cost depends on whether the participants have cars or not. In the latter case we can rent a car/van for the weekend and share the costs.

Reserve your calendars for the long-weekend for now. I will confirm the trip if we have at least four participants who register & pay the contribution fee.

Looking forward to sailing with you in Ijselmeer,
