Daysail trip to the Historic Island of Marken.
We will have lunch at Marken and you can explore the village on foot. This is a great trip for people who are new to sailing as we sail the sheltered water of the 'Gouwzee'. Afterwards we go out onto the Markermeer and Sail towards the famous lighthouse "Paard van Marken".
You can check out one of our video's to get an idea of what to expect:
The boat is a 36 foot long Jeanneau Sun Odyssey which has a salon, kitchen, 2 cabins and a bathroom on board.
There are five places available for the trip, excluding crew. The daytrip will start in Marinapark Volendam at 11 am. We will meet on the terrace of the Restaurant Paviljoen Smit-Bokkumfacing the marina 2 min walking from the bus stop Marinapark or the long-term parking behind the (new) Marinapark.
We'll have a great summer day and you will also have the chance to swim and try SUP-ing if you like. (Make sure to bring swim wear)
There will be snacks and soft (cold/warm) drinks and a basic lunch available on board.
In the afternoon we'll sail back to the Volendam Marinapark and upon arrival (around 5pm) and we'll have a drink (ankerbier) to celebrate our safe return to the marina.
Life vests are available for safety. (maximum size is large) When we are sailing on the Markermeer and you want to go on the deck, out of the cockpit, you will be required to wear a life vest. Swimming skills are preferred and sailing experience is welcome. Due to the nature of this trip and for your own safety a basic level of fitness is required.
If you are new to sailing it is good to be aware that wind /weather conditions can change rapidly so we can experience some mild wind and easy sailing but also some stronger winds and waves and real sailing. Make sure to bring along several layers of clothing and preferably a wind and waterproof jacket and white sole shoes.
If the trip is cancelled because of weather conditions you will receive your full payment. In case you cancel your attendance for any reasons there is no refund.
Please be aware that there are certain risks that are unique to waterborne sports. Of course, with good planning and well trained captain then 99% of the time you'll be enjoying one of the most exciting day trips you'll ever experience. However, it's good to be prepared with a suitable (sailing) travel insurance policy in the event of accidents and injuries incurred on board. Participating with this trip is at your own risk.
We are looking forward to seeing you on board,
