 Sailing weekend programme

Below is an example of a weekend’s sailing on the Ijsselmeer aboard the Orion. The long weekend programme starts on Friday morning, as we embark around ten o’clock. The extra morning and afternoon give us plenty of time to sail around the Gouwzee and Markermeer. We enjoy a delicious lunch around 1 or 2 o’clock in the afternoon, and in the early evening we will arrive in a new port! After a hearty drink we set up the barbecue on deck for a delicious dinner, and in the evening we explore the town. The rest of the programme more or less follows the description further below.

Should you have any particular wishes or a different itinerary in mind for your sailing weekend, please don’t hesitate to call or email Wouter the skipper to discuss the possibilities.

 

Friday 21:00

Welkom op de OrionOn Friday we embark around 9 o’clock from the old Monnickendam harbour quay. We have a nice cup of coffee or a drink until all the guests have arrived and settled in, after which there’s a tour of the ship. Party animals can visit one of Monnickendam’s many bars, and finally there’s a good night’s sleep aboard the Orion.

 

 

 

Saturday 09:00

We start Saturday morning with a hearty breakfast and some good coffee and tea. After breakfast we set sail for the Gouwzee and the Markermeer. There’s plenty to do for sailing enthusiasts: hoisting and lowering the sails, navigating, managing the sideboards (swords), standing at the helm and operating the sheets and stays. Less active sailors can relax in the saloon or just enjoy the fresh air and sunshine on deck.

 

 

Saturday afternoon 13:00

egasail-home-arrangementen-bbq-gouwzeeWe have a delicious ship’s lunch between 1 and 2 o’clock, either whilst under sail or in one of the harbours nearby, depending on the weather. Towards the evening we dock in another harbour town, and after a well-earned drink we set up the barbecue for a delicious dinner. After painting the town well and truly red, we settle down in our bunks to have an excellent night’s rest aboard the Orion.

 

 

Sunday 09:00

Zeilen monnickendamSunday starts with a lovely breakfast, coffee and tea. After breakfast we sail on across the Ijsselmeer and Markermeer; an opportunity for the sailing enthusiasts to get some more practice in.

During the afternoon we make our way back to Monnickendam, and after mooring we have a traditional sailors’ drink, concluding our journey.
