Every year at the beginning and end of the sailing season several sailing races are held on the Wadden Sea , the IJsselmeer & the Markermeer. During these so-called regattas several sailing boats sail a predetermined route and the first to arrive is the sailing champion for that year.
As fanatical sailors, we rarely let these races pass us by. Because every race is a spectacle, many amateur and professional sailors want to join in on one of the ships. On the Lotus and the Waterwolf, we usually keep room free for the real adventurer. Ask about the possibilities of having the day or weekend of your life as an individual, as a couple, with a small group or with a large group.

This is a fierce 24 hour race where 4 ports [Den Oever, Oudeschild, Terschelling & Vlieland] have to be visited and where extra points can be scored, if it can be predicted in advance in what order the ports will be reached within 24 hours non-stop sailing.
