10 of the Eleven Towns sloop package

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.

Cabin motor boat until a height of 2.10 metres ‘Discovery One’

Discovery Motor cruiser
Only 1.85 metres above water and suitable for 4 persons, the Discovery Motor Cruiser is the answer to the wish of many watersport lovers who would rather sail over the small rivers than the big canals and love to see sights of historical cities such as Hindeloopen and Harlingen and the National Park in Friesland and Overijssel. But the same lovers would for example also want to go safely over the IJsselmeer, the IJssel and the Wadden Sea with the enjoyment and comfort just like home. This is why the ‘Discovery’ was developed. It offers comfort and the sailing characteristics of a luxury yacht and the possibilities of a sturdy sloop. No bridge is too low for this ship which is based on the classic lines. This is why the Dutch water world is much bigger. You will discover with the Discovery the hidden treasures of the Netherlands.

No sailing license is needed for a boat vacation in Holland
Everyone can book such an amazing sailing vacation as you do not need a sailing license. Sailing with a motorboat is not difficult and the traffic regulations on the water are very simple. You will be informed in advance, so no worries. A friendly and highly skilled instructor will help you the first day. You will get the chance to practice a lot on the yacht. While sailing you will learn all necessary traffic rules. This is a good beginning of your unforgettable holiday on the water.

Thoughtful design
At the design of the Discovery the most important principles were the length which is over 9,00 metres, the exceptional good sailing characteristics, steering outside possibility with the luxury of a standing steering wheel, a big tub with spacious sitting benches and storage room, standing height in the cabin with accommodation options for 4 persons and a crawl height of less than 1,70 metres (minus clearance). The ship has a chine construction on a flat base plate with a wide wedge and sturdy appearance which is accentuated by the RVS-fender and the beautiful sheer in the construction. The appearance of the Discovery is through the flat bottom construction classic and traditional. The boat has because of its big tub and slight crawling height the charm of an open sloop, but offer the comfort and living space of a flat bottom sailing yacht with de same length. The lovely light interior and the cosy division of the cabin make staying in the Discovery very pleasant. The exceptional good sailing characteristics make every tour a great pleasure.

Touring in large sailing areas
Due to its comfortable living area, staying on board of the Discovery is possible which makes it easier to sail long tours. The sailing area stretches itself through all the Dutch inland waterways, the IJsselmeer and the Wad. Due to the flat bottom plate, falling dry when it is low tide, is very easy. The boat has a low crawling height which means that almost all bridges can be taken along the route and sailing areas which are not accessible for other boats are made accessible. 

Spacious comfort cabin with 4 sleeping places*
For the interior – standing height! – a decking is chosen of maple in combination with teak frames. The interior therefore is very light and spacious and gets due to the used teak a luxury appearance. The division of the cabin consist of two long benches with in between a movable ‘hangoortafel’ (hanging table), an efficient designed galley and sanitary room on larboard and a card reading table on the starboard. The Galley and card reading table are foreseen of a plastic blade. There is a three-burner gas stove present for cooking. Cabinets have been made underneath the sink and the sitting benches. The refrigerator can be found underneath the card reading table. Shelves and storage room has been created over the entire length underneath the gangways. The sleeping cabin is situated in the front and offers place for two people. The sitting benches in the cabin can be sued for creating the two other sleeping places. There is storage room underneath the beds. The distinction between cabin and sleeping cabin is formed through the toilet- and showering area on larboard- and a hanging closet on starboard.

*There is a possibility for a fifth person when taking an air mattress and situating this between the two beds. However, you would have to move the table which is situated over there.

Standing steer, tub, swimming platform, storage for folding bikes
The steering position exists of a steering column with a hydraulic steering pomp inside with steering wheel. On top of this column is a control panel with the instruments of the motor (tachometer, hour meter, thermometer and warning lights), the joystick of the thrusters, the rudder indicator and the fuel tank meter. The engine control can be found with a Teleflex one-hand control on the side of the steering column. The tub is over 2,00 x 2,00 metres and offers a lot of space. Due to the cockpit cover in convertible version you have the possibility to sail completely ‘open’ or with a sun roof and you are able to close the tub with bad weather. The swimming platform can be reached via stair brackets on the mirror and is foreseen of a folding swim ladder. In the engine room and the aft is lots of space for two folding bikes so you are also able to discover the surrounding of the moorings.

Driving
In the engine room underneath the crawling floor, which is accessible via a large hatch, is a 40 PK strong and silent diesel engine. The three-bladed propeller, the thrusters and the fishtail shaped rudder provide the propulsion of the Discovery, so the boat is agile. The noise level in the tub is exceptionally low due to the very solid construction and optimal engine isolation.

Electrical installation
The board power is supplied by a 12 V battery of 140 Ah that is fed by a dynamo and a 230 V shore installation with rectifier.

Tour de Frise: enjoy the cultural and culinary splendour of a unique coastal people
WOLVEGA (NL) - The Friesland Holland tourist office is now offering a very special cycling trip lasting several days which takes you past the cultural and historical highlights of Friesland. It is called: Tour de Frise. It starts where the Romans stopped - at the major rivers that cross through the Netherlands. From there you will have the chance to explore the lowest-lying and most picturesque part of the Netherlands.

In order to avoid any major risks the Romans entered into friendly commercial relationships with the Frisians who, since time immemorial, have always been experts in international trade and shipping. These are two of the many themes of your journey through the 5,000 year old cultural landscape.

You’ll be amazed
These days the trip is a completely Friesland Experience. Anyone who books this specially put together 10 day trip will not only experience UNESCO world heritage locations, but also less well-known, hidden treasures the province of Fryslân (Friesland) has to offer. You will cycle through typical Frisian landscapes, past lakes and the sea, and through nostalgic towns and villages with their marvellous little shops. You will find out about how Friesland came into being, from the time that the characteristic knolls [terpen] were constructed, 3,000 years before Christ, until the turf digging period of the 20th century. Centuries-old monuments, including the smallest castles and churches of Europe, will all open their doors to you. You will also find out how the famous Frisian flat-bottomed boats [skûtsjes] were built, and learn about dairy farming and Frisian dairy products which, these days, are marketed all over the world.

Frisian hospitality
Frisians are proud of their identity as hard-working bargemen and farmers, and as makers of world famous traditional and industrial products. They keep their own language alive, partly in the form of fun traditions for visitors, such as village parties and historic ship sailing competitions. Another excellent Frisian habit is to greet people they meet, whether on the water or cycle paths. This is their way of showing that you are a welcome guest. “Enjoy all the good things that we have preserved for you and for ourselves!” You will be served Frisian cuisine and local produce in the restaurants of the hotels where you will spend the night. The lodgings have been specially selected for this trip so that, day in day out, you can fully enjoy the atmosphere of times gone by and the splendour of Friesland.
