Light breeze to Stavoren
We sail out of Makkum for a short sail to Stavoren with the hope we will see the Olympic swimmer Maarten van der Weijden during his heroic attempt to swim the 195 km elfstedentocht.
Champagne sailing to Medemblik
In general we try to sail as much and as far as possible each weekend. This time we sit out the rain in Makkum and then depart late in the morning to Medemblik and are rewarded with some fantastic champagne sailing.
We shelter from the storm at Terschelling
We sail to Terschelling. After viewing the Brandaris lighthouse, we visit ’t Behouden Huis. During our stay the coast guard brings in a stranded cruiser and we prepare for the storm.
We ride the Vliehors Express
When visiting Vlieland an absolute must do is to take the Vliehors Express - a truck ride over the so called Sahara of the north down to the southern most point of the island, viewing on the way the firing range the survivors house and a view out to Texel.
Seaweed cheese on Vlieland
Although Vlieland only has one village and no dairy cows on the island, it does boast a fantastic cheese maker, housed in the old underground water reservoir now called the Vlielander Kaasbunker (cheese bunker). We climb the path to the lighthouse beside which is the bunker and visit the cheese maker, who tells us how he started his business and made seaweed cheese!
Sailing to Vlieland with a fantastic sunrise
We wake up early to catch the right tide to sail from Makkum to Vlieland. Unfortunately there is no wind so we motor all the way. However we are rewarded with a spectacular sunrise.
