Due to the great success in the previous years, we reserved two weekend to sail in the lovely Friesland!
Of course, under the assumption that by that time we are allowed to be within 1,5meter of each other, or find a suitable solution!
Sailing for 2 days on the motorless Dutch flatbottom sailing ship 'De Gudsekop'.
Friday, after work (>9 pm), we will arrive in Akkrum (Friesland), where 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).
The weekend will cost ~70 euros including food, stay and boat trip. We will have to think about collective transport (see above).
There is only room for 9 people on the boat, so the first 9 interested people can go. However, we have multiple weekends reserved (30th of July-1st of August / 27th-29th of August), and we are discussing to find a third weekend. We might also rent additional smaller boats to make a sort of 'fleet'.
