10 of the Eleven Towns

Whilst your children enjoy a fully organized and guided sailing lesson of the Vinea Sailing school on the Frisian lakes, you as their parents or supervisors can enjoy a beautiful vacation.

For the relationships of the Vinea Sailing school, the bureau for tourism Friesland Holland made this ‘Ten of the Eleven Towns’ cycling- and sloop package. You will cycle or sail during the sailing vacation of your child – or children – from Eleven City hotel to Eleven City hotel, including luggage service and breakdown service.

You will arrive on Sunday afternoon, after dropping off your children at the sailing school, at your starting hotel in Sneek. You will start the next day with the tour of all tours by bike or by sloop. Friesland Holland offers the most beautiful tour bikes, e-bikes and sloops of the Netherlands. No typical bike- and boat rentals, but grand luxury transport. You are of course also welcome with your own bicycle or sloop.

In five days you will have visited ten of the Eleven Towns. One city will be left on the side: Dokkum. A beautiful city, but it is too far from the route for a short Eleven Towns Tour by bike or sloop.

Friesland Holland arranges everything: bicycles, sloop, the overnight stays on half pension basis, luggage service, route map, cards and so on. You will have everything you need. You will be back in Sneek Friday afternoon. The children can be picked up at the sailing school Saturday morning. Of course you need to tell each other everything.

Advice and Conditions

Harbors, moorings
Along the way you will encounter moorings and marinas anywhere, including free construction sites of the provincial organization Marrekrite. These places are indicated on the water map of Friesland.
You can also moor your boat in the city center. In that case you pay demurrage to the harbor master of the municipality. Port fees are calculated per meter length of the ship, it costs about € 1.00 per meter.
Not all bridges charge money, but it is advisable to bring sufficient change. A bridge costs on average € 1.20. These additional costs are for you own expense.

The boat charters which are connected with Friesland Holland Tourist Information have fully equipped, well maintained and good technical conditioned boats. The sloops are inspected before each rental period.

The yacht charter gives you a full tank of fuel before you leave the harbor. Consumption is at your expense. Therefore, at the end of the rental period, the boat must be returned with a full fuel tank and water tank.
You can often refilll the tanks near or even at the charter base. The payment of gas should be arranged with the yacht charter.


Cleaning costst are included in the package price. However, clean up the garbage before you leave. 

To Hindeloopen
The booker of this sailing package may not sail on the IJsselmeer in order to visit the place Hindeloopen, but must use the inland canals (via the lake Morra).
Vertical clearance to Hindeloopen: 3 meter.

Lay-off pay
15% of the booking amount must be paid within 14 days after the invoice date. The remaining amount (75% of the booking amount) must be paid no later than six weeks before the confirmed arrival date which is stated on the invoice made by Friesland Holland.
In case of last-minute bookings, when payment is not possible, the rent or package price needs to be paid at arrival.

Damage deposit and own risk
Upon arrival, a damage deposit of 250,- - 500,- Euro must be paid by the tenant to the yacht charter to cover the personal liability.
A valid identity document can often also serve as a deposit.

Hiswa or ANWB contract
The yacht charters work with a Hiswa or ANWB lease contract. You get a copy of this contract and need to respect the conditions of this contact.
When you book this holiday package you automatically agree to comply with the Hiswa or ANWB conditions.

The IJsselmeer is a sailing area for experienced captains which have rough-waterproof ships.
Beginners and tenants of smaller yachts and boats are strongly discouraged by yacht charters and Friesland Holland to sail at this lake.

You can park your car at the harbor of the yacht charter.


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
