Why sail in spring?

Spring ensures a wonderful experience on the water. You can experience the serenity of the water during this season, the beautiful views and authentic towns and villages. In spring you can explore the Frisian lake area or the lakes in the Brandenburg area in peace. There are plenty of opportunities to moor your boat and you can enjoy the awakening of nature around you. This time of year is an ideal time to sail for lovers of nature and tranquility, for photographers and also for inexperienced skippers. Because there is not much traffic yet, and therefore plenty of space, spring is the perfect time to get acquainted with watersports and to gain sailing experience. Below, you will find more advantages to sailing in pre-season. 

Advantages of sailing in spring:

  • Because of the open waterways, it is possible to go anywhere in both our sailing areas, without being hindered by any bridges or locks. Also, we will provide you with a list of open marinas and operated bridges, so that sailing in spring becomes an even more relaxing experience. Before departure, we always give information and advice about the boat and sailing routes, to ensure a pleasant tour. 
  • It is quiet on the canals and lakes: a great opportunity for lovers of nature and peace and quiet, and also for inexperienced skippers to enjoy some time on the water. 
  • The rising temperatures ensure a pleasant time on the water. Nature awakens again after winter, in all its beauty: there are for example lovely sunrises, the mystical sight of morning dew and awakening animals. 
  • Most of our motor yachts, Kotter yachts and houseboats are fully equipped, with e.g. heating, running water and electricity. There are even boats available with a generator, which means you can moor even in places where no electricity is available at the berths.
