WHAT YOU EXPERIENCE

20,000 years ago the sea level was about 100 metres lower than today. After that the levels rose due to meltwater. The original river valley was flooded and sank into the sea. This is how the English Channel was created, which has since then separated England from the European continent, and that was a good thing, because today we can enjoy the living room of English and French yachtsmen. History meets modernity, that's roughly how the harbours at the channel coasts can be described. Monuments tell about former naval battles and their leaders and parallel to this, modern buildings are being built that are designed for today's leisure needs. Many nature parks protect the coast so that we are largely spared from building sins. The Channel Islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark & Herm are just one of the attractions of the journey, as the south coast of England with its navigable estuaries need not fear any comparison. Dover and the crossing of the traffic separation area will make the sailor's heart beat faster besides the tidal currents. The fact that we visit Amsterdam is almost pushed into the background by this variety of impressions, but it is certainly also a highlight of the sailing trip. Enough stories ... see you on board.

everything can, but nothingt have to
Sailing involves many different tasks, which we will tackle together. Helmsman, navigator, deck hand during sailing manoeuvres or pentry. The skipper has the last word, he pays attention to safety, but otherwise he accepts any help. Knowledge will be refreshed and hand movements will be explained and then it starts ...

Q&A

No special requirements. Everyone is welcome, even beginners. The trip is suitable for sailors from 16 to 80 years.
Clothing and footwear appropriate to the weather.
Each participant receives an automatic life jacket and a sheet with pillow for the duration of the trip.
Those who have booked their own cabin will also be able to stow a suitcase. But what is more suitable is a duffel or a foldable travel bag in order to be able to stow it better during the trip.

the " fine print"

* Wind & wave will always have the last word!

** To ensure that every guest on board has his or her own cabin, we calculate each trip with 3 sailors. The prices called up are the allocation of our experience. Depending on the occupation, we keep the right to reduce the prices (couples/friends share a cabin) or to raise them (insufficient crew / special right of termination, refund of advance payment is mandatory). Advance payment only due from 1.3.2022. In addition, each sailing guest please calculate approx. 20-25€ per day for the board cashes.

*** Each guest on board has their own berth. We calculate with 4 fellow sailors plus skipper. The prices quoted are based on our experience. In addition, each sailing guest is asked to calculate approx. 20-25€ per day for the board cash.

What is the boarding pass: It is a community fund into which all sailors pay in equal shares and with which, among other things, food, fuel, mooring and harbour fees are paid. Usually the skipper is not included, but is also supplied from this fund according to old tradition.
