We sailed several
types of open yachts, like the 16 m2, and with them spent our holidays on the inner lakes
The Netherlands and Friesland. We moved "up" to sailing the open seas in more advanced and larger yachts, like the Contest 30 and steel-hulled
Caribbean 40. We sailed along the North Sea coasts of The Netherlands, South bound to Belgium
and France, North bound to Germany and Denmark. We crossed over to England and Ireland
and toured the Mediterranean Sea, visiting Spain and the Baleares,
sailed across to Sardinia and Sicily in Italy and circled the French island of Corsica.
experience was gathered with a 35 foot Westerly Riviera when cruising the IJsselmeer in The Netherlands. A comfortable
semi-motorsailer, rented by me through the OWN SHIP internet site in 2002.
Why own a yacht when you can easily rent them?
