Sailing in the Netherlands

Explore the Netherlands on a Dehler 43 in September. If you haven't sailed in Holland now's your chance! If you haven't been on a Dehler, likewise!

My boat lives in southern Holland and has done for over ten years. Why? Because the sailing is second to none, there's lots of beautiful harbours and towns into which we can go and it is ideal for beginners and the more experienced alike. The boat has three double cabins two loos and a shower (heating too..). And two sails and a 48 hp diesel engine! She sails brilliantly - tacks like a dingy and points like a Contessa 32. (Had one, so I know...) 

Me? This is my 6th boat. Sailed for many decades now, starting on the East Coast so know about tides, chop and rain as well! 

I’m planning as follows and can offer a lift:

Leave London by car 17th 1500 to catch ferry from Dover at 1800 arriving Tholen circa 2300. Sail in Zeeland: 18,19,20,21. Return to London 22 arriving in the city circa 1900. The alternatives are to depart Friday 18 or to return on Monday 21 same arrival time London.

If you're interested contact me via [email protected] we can email, skype, phone - whatever is best for you.

Looking forward to seeing you on board. 

John
