After a busy day, at school or at work, you and your friends, colleagues or family can relax aboard the Orion. Sailing in the evening is a unique experience, often with beautiful sunsets and romantic moonlight mirrored in the water.
No time during the day?
A sailing trip is a wonderful way to spend time with friends, family or co-workers, but setting a date to accommodate everyone can be difficult. At Egasail we are often busy during the day as well, which is why we offer sailing trips in the evenings.
Egasail organises evening sailing trips starting at our home port Monnickendam from 18.00. Several other ports are within reach, such as Marken, Volendam and Edam. An evening trip with Egasail includes drinks, luxury cheese platter and fish snacks in the early evening, and an extensive barbecue at dinnertime. Below is a list of prices for our Luxury evening arrangement.
Luxury evening arrangement, per person:
10-14 persons €131
15-19 persons €103
20-24 persons €89
25-29 persons €80
30-34 persons €75
From 18:00 – 22:00. Prices include ship’s rent, crew, drinks, luxury cheese platter, fish and extensive barbecue.
Evening sailing trip; an example
Below is an example of a lovely evening’s sailing trip! Would you like to be active and participate in the sailing? Interested beginners can operate the helm, stays, and lines under guidance; experienced sailors can assist the crew with navigation and more complicated manoeuvres. Everyone can find shelter in our luxury saloon if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Safety is paramount at Egasail, so if the weather turns stormy we can trim the sails or continue our trip under engine power.
Everyone boards around six and has time to settle down, have a drink and have a look around the Orion.
We hoist sail and set a course for the IJsselmeer.
We anchor in a quiet spot and enjoy a delicious barbecue.
We arrive back in Monnickendam harbour around ten.
