Sailing on the Frisian lakes in a small (5 pp.) ship

This is a day trip, starting in a picturesque Frisian village (e. g. Grou, Sleat or Heech). I will pick you up at the hotel and take you there. We will sail in a small open sailing ship (5 persons max. ). Lunch stop is included (picknick or restaurant). Special clothing will be taken care of. Sailing in such a small ship is not dangerous, but it can be challenging. We will finish the trip drinking a glass of Beerenburger or any other drink you like in a Frisian café. Then I will bring you back to your hotel.
Also available as half day trip. If sailing in the province of Groningen or Overijssel is preferred, this can be arranged.
