Sailing package 3+4 days

The bureau for tourism Friesland Holland developed a 7-day sailing package which is ideal for beginners. The lessons take place on the sporty 4-person cabin sailing yacht Fox Racing. An experienced sailing instructor will be present on the yacht.

The package involves three days (Monday till Wednesday) of intensive, private sailing instructions with a maximum of 4 participants on board, and four days rental of the Fox (Thursday through to Sunday). After the exciting mini sailing course, which is full of practical and very different exercises and situations, the renters sail off independently on the same Fox that the lessons took place on. It goes without saying that this is a quick way to learn how to sail, with the great advantage of renting the same boat on which the course is given. Another pro is that in addition to learning how to manage an open sailboat one also learns to operate a cabin sailing yacht, as the Fox combines the sporty properties of both.

This dashing, lime green small sailing yacht participated as Fox Racing in the boat show fleet of the bureau for tourism Friesland Holland. The virtually new boat has been upgraded to touring yacht with new sails and several detachable, comfort-heightening amenities. The XC has an electric start 6Hp Yamaha outboard engine, Sprenger Racing ironwork, Furlex roller system, a tapered and anodised aluminium Neutmast, a boom with integrated quick reefing system and new Gaastra touring sails. Crosstrees and deck are lit by lights in the mast.

In the yacht’s tub section are a 220V onshore power supply socket and a battery with charger. Nautical instruments, such as a bulkhead compass and speed and depth instruments help the yachtsman keep the yacht on course. The four-person cabin sports soft green upholstery, wood accents, ambiance lighting, FM radio with antennae, two power sockets and a chemical toilet. Because of this particular Fox’s special features such as the lightweight, transom-mounted outboard engine, superior yacht ironwork and its tapered mast it is faster than a standard rigged Fox with its engine in a compartment.

Friesland Holland Assistance
In the event of you hitting trouble on the way: no worries, the yacht rental agent will reach you in no time at all! You will be given the telephone number when booking.

For this package one must have had some sailing experience. You will not receive a CWO-diploma for these 3 days of sailing instructions.
Max. 2 persons for instructions, max. 4 persons on board.

Sloop Holiday Guarantee

It does not happen very often that the weather is so bad that it is not save to go out by boat. If it does occur that sailing is not save during the sloop package for one or more days, the participants of the sloop can be taken by the shuttle bus of Friesland Holland:

  1. From the starting location to the first hotel
  2. From one hotel to other
  3. From the last hotel to the finish

In this way the sailors of the sloop can still enjoy their ending destination(s) at bad weather.

When the weather conditions are better, judged by Friesland Holland, the guests will be taken back to the location where the sloop is left behind, or the sloop will be sailed to a location from which the bookers can continue their trip. You can only take out the sloop guarantee insurance at the moment you book the holiday package, at a minimum of three weeks in advance before the sailing trip. This deal cannot be taken in combination with last-minutes. This offered insurance of Friesland Holland Assistance (shuttle service and skipper) costs €195,- per sloop package, booked a minimum of three weeks in advance before the trip starts.

If you have not taken the sloop vacation guarantee, or you booked it too late, and you want to make use of this during your sloop package, you will pay €295,- per day. In fact this is not so expensive as two persons come in action: a private driver and a private skipper.
Get a guarantee or not, when you are in doubt about the safety always contact the Friesland Holland Travel Service: 0031 (0)561 615 364
