Sailing with friends

You always have a good time with your friends, so it’s even more fun to organise a special friends outing! A sailing day on the IJsselmeer is a great way to spend quality time with your best friends. The Orion, a rugged sea-tjalk, sails across the entire IJsselmeer from Monnickendam, and can moor in many harbours such as Edam, Marken, Hoorn and Pampus.

A day out with friends

Have a drink together on a sunny outdoor cafe in historical Hoorn or taste delicious wines at a wine tasting in Edam! A day’s sailing with Egasail is an unforgettable experience and will have you telling tall tales for many years after.




Prices go from €35 per person without catering, at full occupancy of 35 persons. Of course Egasail can provide full catering, including plenty of soft drinks, beer and wine!

Sailing programme

Look below for an example of your itinerary. Are your friends athletic? We love for you to assist our crew with sailing our ship! For those less active, or if the weather turns wet, we have a great deck to enjoy the warm sunshine and the fresh air, and a comfortable saloon to withdraw to.


We start the day well with hot coffee or tea and some delicious pastry. We cast off around 10.30 and set sail for the Gouwzee.


Around midday an extensive lunch is prepared on board; a nice tasty beer is also available!



We look for a sheltered spot to anchor, and set up our barbecue on the mainland. Dinner is served!

After our well-earned meal we return to Monnickendam harbour, where we moor around seven.
