Flotilla Sailing

Are you looking for a unique trip with your own or a rented boat? Choose our new concept: Flotilla sailing!

Flotilla sailing is sailing with several boats in a group. We will be sailing via the most beautiful cities in the Netherlands, towards Belgium and back. Together with at least 7 other ships and an experienced captain we sail to Lemmer, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Maastricht, Arnhem and back to Drachten.

Experience this unique event too – it could just be that your place is already forgiven. Also, this has never been organized in the Netherlands before!

You will receive detailed information about the preparations and things you need to do to make you and your boat ready for depature. During the trip, different subjects will be discussed, such as locks and VHF radio. You start your unique flotilla holiday from our marina in Friesland. Here, we gather together and sail through the Netherlands and Belgium, following a unique route.
