This sailing package includes several components:
- coffee, tea and some delicious pastry upon arrival
- a sailing trip on the Markermeer to Volendam and back
- lunch on board of the historical ship
- free time in Volendam (or organized activities)
- refreshments during the sailing trip
During the course of the morning you board one of the magnificent sailing ships of the Monnickendam Sailing Fleet, moored in the Monnickendam harbour. The skipper and crew welcome you with coffee, tea and something sweet, and soon after you'll be hoisting the sails for a sailing trip on the southern part of the IJsselmeer, the Markermeer.
Later, the ship moors in picturesque Volendam for a delicious lunch on board. After that, you can walk around on the dike and in town, but we can also organise a guided tour, getting your picture taken in the local folk costume or a visit to a fish smokehouse with the group. Then we sail back to Monnickendam, with snacks and drinks served en route.
Would you prefer somewhere a bit more tranquil? A visit to the old cheese town Edam is also possible.
This package can also be extended with a dinner or barbecue on board. For this, the skipper can drop anchor in a sheltered spot.
