Sailing with groups in Holland on the IJsselmeer, Waddensea and Frisian lakes with the tjalk "Vrouwezand"
Sailing on the Vrouwezand can be adventurous, impressive or relaxing. Skipper Yvonne van Scheijen confers with you about the sailingroute, and the basic principles of navigation and sailing can be learned.
Stavoren is our home port, from there we are direct on the IJsselmeer or at the Frisian Lakes. The Waddensea, with its tidal area, teeming with birds and other wild wildlife, takes at best a couple of hours sailing .
The vrouwezand is a sailing 'tjalk'* for a variety of groups as families, sportsteams, womengroups, groups of mentally disabled persons, pupils, students, a.s.o. On a daytrip we can take up to 25 persons. Equiped with 20 bunks / beds it is possible to sail up to 20 persons on longer trips as weekends, weeks or longer.
* old dutch cargoship, that has turned its cargo hold into a living-space for guests.
On deck the sails are hoisted with ropes, so that means literally all hands on deck!
There is also time for relaxation, walk across shallows and mud flats, looking for habourevents and admire lighthouses.
