Afternoon sailing trip
An activity to look forward to and to remember for a long time; a sailing trip with Egasail is a wonderful idea!
Sailing for part of the day
The salty smell of the sea, sunshine and a fresh breeze do us all good, and sailing is healthy exercise to boot. But what if you are really too busy to take the whole day off? Don’t worry; Egasail also organises sailing trips for just the afternoon. A couple of hours to really enjoy a good sail, and the rest of the day free to do all the other things you need to do!
The sea-tjalk Orion is anchored in the old Monnickendam harbour, an excellent base from which to explore the Ijsselmeer. An afternoon trip gives us enough time to visit Marken, Edam or Volendam. Booking an afternoon sailing trip on the Ijsselmeer with Egasail gives you the following two options:

Afternoon sailing trip; an example
Below you will find an example of what an afternoon’s sailing trip can look like. There’s plenty to do on board for sailing enthusiasts who want to become one with the elements. The less active sailor can enjoy the afternoon in our luxury saloon or in the fresh air and the sunshine on deck.
We embark at one and enjoy a drink and a delicious snack with luxury cheese or fish.
After a short tour of the ship we cast off at 13:30 and set a course for the Gouwzee and the Markermeer.
We serve a late ship’s lunch at 15:00; we can also anchor at a quiet spot and have a sunny picnic ashore.
We arrive back in Monnickendam harbour around 17:00.
