Sailing with a group in Friesland
From the Frisian port cities, various traditional sailing ships sail beautiful sailing trips on the IJsselmeer, Wadden Sea or the lakes and canals. The ships vary from small botters to large clippers and in the early and late season you can also book a sailing trip on a tallship. So whether you come with 8 or 40 people, there is always something a ship readily available.
You can book the ships with a group, then the ship is rented as a skipper and sailor. These explain to you before departure how everything works. This allows you to help sail without a sailing experience and make a nice sailing trip. You can go sailing for a day, but if you want to enjoy longer, you can also choose a weekend, midweek or week.
If you are going to make a longer sailing trip then it is possible to sailing on the Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer. For example, a tour could start in Harlingen and then visit a few IJsselmeer ports and you can spend the last days on the islands. Sailing across the canals through the interior is also quite an experience. And when the wind is strong the canals are a solution, it is quieter there than on the open water.
