Multiple day sailing trips
Is one day’s sailing not enough? For the real sailor’s experience, Egasail also organises multi-day sailing trips with overnight stays on board. Think a weekend away, a youth-group trip, school trip or bachelor party weekend, or a staff incentive and serious-meets-fun teambuilding weekend. Anything is possible!
Sailing the Wadden Sea
The small and picturesque town of Monnickendam is Orion’s home port; from here she sails across the beautiful IJsselmeer and to the Wadden Sea. Depending on the length of your trip we can sail to many destinations, including Volendam, Amsterdam, Lemmer or even the Wadden Islands!

Sailing weekend programme
Below is an example of what a weekend trip can be like with Egasail. There is plenty to do on board for sailing enthusiasts, like operating the helm, sheets, stays and leeboards, and navigation of course! If you want to take things easier or if sailing is not really your thing, you can enjoy the fresh air and beautiful views from the deck. There’s also the comfort of our saloon, a popular destination in strong winds or when it rains! When winds get really strong we will reduce the sails or navigate under engine power.
Welcome aboard the Orion. We embark and settle in while enjoying a lovely drink. Together with your friends, family or colleagues you can explore the ship and celebrate in the cosy and hospitable bars of Monnickendam.
On Saturday morning we’ll sleep (a bit) late, then have a good breakfast. Around 10 we’ll hoist the sails and set a course for the Markermeer. The wind pushes us across the water. Lunch is served on board unless the weather is bad, in which case we’ll look up a nice harbour.
After lunch we’ll sail on, and moor in our next harbour. Time to explore! Dinner is served on board or on the quay. When the evening is well under way the party animals can go out to paint the town. We’ll have a good night’s sleep aboard the Orion.
Another hearty breakfast starts our Sunday, after which we’ll set a course for the return journey to Monnickendam. We’ll arrive back in port around 16:00, say goodbye and return home filled with memories of a wonderful sailing weekend!
