Do you have something to celebrate, do you have to plan a company outing or do you just feel like a day’s sailing for no particular reason? A sailing trip to or from Amsterdam is an excellent idea!
The old timber port in Amsterdam is one of Egasail’s home ports; from here our sailing charter Orion can sail across the entire IJsselmeer, and moor in Edam, Volendam, Marken, Uitdam, Hoorn, Pampus, Muiden and Monnickendam. There are lots of attractions in these historical harbours, such as the cheese market in Edam, eel smokehouses in Volendam and attractive outdoor cafes in Hoorn.
Sailing to Amsterdam
Egasail organises several day trips to Amsterdam. Spend a day on the IJsselmeer waves with your friends, colleagues, family or team, and visit one or several picturesque ports. We can also provide catering for a full occupancy of 34 persons. The price for a day trip to Amsterdam is €35 p.p., not including catering (10:00 – 17:00h). The price for an afternoon trip (13:00 – 17:00h) is €25.
Sailing to Amsterdam programme
We go aboard around ten o’clock, and are welcomed with some delicious traditional pastry and a nice hot cup of coffee or tea. We cast off around 10:30, hoist the sails, and set a course for the Markermeer and the IJmeer. There is plenty to do aboard for sailing enthusiasts; under supervision from our experienced crew you will learn all there is to know about navigating or operating the helm, sheets, stays and leeboards. You are also free to relax and enjoy the beautiful views on deck or the comfort of our saloon.
Around midday a delicious lunch is served; on deck if the weather permits, or in a homely harbour if the seas are a bit too rough. After our meal we hoist the sails again, and continue our journey. Of course we will make sure you are provided with plenty of snacks and drinks. In late afternoon we look for a quiet spot to enjoy a hearty barbecue. We arrive back in Amsterdam around five o’clock, ending our trip.
