What you'll do

We are excited to welcome you on board for a Fun Day Sail experience on the IJsselmeer. The trip will begin in Volendam Marina. Volendam is 20min drive away from Amsterdam and easily accessible by public transport. No previous sailing experience is required but for your own safety a basic level of fitness and mobility is necessary. The boat is a 36 foot long Jeanneau Sun Odyssey which has a salon, kitchen, 2 cabins and a bathroom on board. There will be snacks and soft (cold/warm) drinks available on board. As Volendam is situated on the Markermeer we can directly open sails and set course to the other side of the Markermeer, nature reserve Oostvaardersdiep. You'll have some time to discover the visitor centre and surroundings on foot and thereafter we offer a basic lunch on board. After lunch we'll sail back and upon arrival we can have a toast together (ankerbier). Here are some video's to get an impression of the day: https://youtu.be/sgLq-XeaM3M ; https://youtu.be/UB2Q0uGuo30 The bus stop for the return is 5 min walk away from the Marina or you can also decide to stay a bit longer and enjoy the Volendamse Dijk with traditional shops and foodstals.

Where you'll be

You can enjoy a sailing trip from Volendam out on the Markermeer and return to Volendam. The traditional Dutch places on the lake are well-known for their history and regional products (cheese, fish, saucage and the famous cloggs.) They are close to Amsterdam but you will get to know a totally different side of the Dutch culture. During sailing you will feel connected to nature and experience the elements close by.
