BBQ on the Gouwzee
The Orion is a beautiful sea-tjalk that has her homeport in picturesque Monnickendam. From here, the Orion can sail the entire Ijsselmeer, but the Gouwzee is one of its true gems.
The Gouwzee, a Dutch hotspot!
The Gouwzee is located between the Marken peninsula and the Waterland mainland. This position is what makes her special: quite a few of Holland’s most popular attractions can be found here. How about Volendam, Marken and Monnickendam? Sailing the Gouwzee is also special because of her very clear and relatively shallow water. The Gouwzee is part of the Markermeer, a conservation area where lots of birds and other fauna can be spotted.

Programme Gouwzee BBQ
Sailing on the Gouwzee is a wonderful way to spend the day with friends, team members, family or colleagues; you can be as active as you like. There is plenty to do aboard the Orion if you’re a sailing enthusiast, but the less sporty are free to enjoy the elements and the fresh air on deck. Below you will find an example of our programme.
We stock the Orion’s galley with delicious things. Before setting sail for the Gouwzee we enjoy a good cup of coffee and some traditional Dutch pastry.
We calmly let the wind take us across the water from Monnickendam. There’s plenty to do for experienced sailors aboard the Orion. In case of uncooperative weather, the beautiful saloon will keep us warm and dry.
In the afternoon we serve a ship’s lunch on board or we can moor somewhere if the weather is really nice. After lunch we continue our trip across the Gouwzee.
A good time to find ourselves a nice spot to anchor; time for the barbecue! Enjoy the beautiful scenery, good company and delicious food. We arrive back in Monnickendam harbour around seven.
