Enkhuizen and the swarm of mosquitos
In our opinion Enkhuizen is one of the most beautiful harbours on the IJsselmeer, we enjoy a decent downwind sail there, and after mooring in the old harbour we explore the town. The next day we have fantastic breeze back to Makkum.
Trouble in the Lorentzsluis
One of the reasons we are moored at Makkum is for easy access to the Waddenzee. This weekend we go though the Lorentzsluizen and see a boat in trouble. We meet a seal and explore the lovely town of Harlingen.
Downwind sailing to Medemblik
We have great fun sailing downwind to Medemblik in more than 20 knots of breeze. Safely moored in Medemblik we eat the greatest ‘bitterballen’ (ragout balls) in the Netherlands. The next day we enjoy a bouncy upwind trip back to Makkum.
Texel and Willemsoord at Easter
We continue our Easter trip on the Wadden sea with Tim and Phoebe and have an Easter egg hunt on board. We explore the harbour and town of Oudeschild before departing for Willemsoord in Den Helder where we go out for dinner.
Sailing to Texel with fantastic weather
Tim and Phoebe join us on board for the Easter weekend and we set off in good spirits through the Lorentzsluizen. Our destination is Texel which we explore on our bikes and visit the North Sea beach.
Expected hail storm so we explore Makkum instead
Our first weekend in Makkum is marked by strong winds and heavy wintery showers with hail stones accompanied by thunder and lightning. We decide not to sail out and instead set off on our bicycles to explore the beautiful town with it’s seventeenth century architecture and delicious pastries.
