Lustrum Sailing Weekend 2

Due to the great success last year we planned two nice sailing weekends during our Lustrum year! :)


The idea:

Sailing for 2 days on the motorless Dutch flatbottom sailing ship 'De Gudsekop'.

The idea is to arrive Friday after work (>9 pm) in Akkrum, Friesland, were we will stay on the boat 'De Gudsekop'.

On Saturday and Sunday we will sail the Friesian lakes (depending on the weather, we will make a larger or shorter tour). Sunday afternoon we will be back at Akkrum. During the trip the Schipper en Maat will show us the ropes of sailing.
We will stay on the boat the whole weekend and you should know: it will be back to basic! So expect a weekend sleeping on a mat, eating simple but good food, being outside a lot, no electricity, a lot of silence since there is no motor, and having a loooong hot shower when you are home ;).

Considering transport to Akkrum: we are still working out if we could do this collectively (hiring a car/carpooling or just going by train).

How much:

The weekend will cost ~70 euros including food, stay and boat trip. We will have to think about collective transport (see above).

How many?

There is only room for 9 people on the boat, so the first 9 interested people can go. However, there will be another weekend the 30th of May.
Also, some people have indicated that additional smaller boats can be rented to make a sort of 'fleet'.  However, this plan is still under construction.
