An excellent way to gain experience or broaden your skills in offshore sailing on tidal waters. On this trip you will be visiting ports in 3 countries. We start of from Medemblik to Den Helder where we will enter the North Sea. Following the coastline we will make a stop over in one of the charming ports of Belgium and carry on into French waters. The Gravelines is one of the "must see" ports in Northern France.
Although all modern technology is installed on the yacht we will still challenge the skills of old fashion navigation using paper charts, compass and log readings. Working with the tides at sea and tidal heights in the ports is great to built your confidence and tidal knowledge.
Although the food on board is normally great anyway, visiting some of the small local restaurants in Belgium and France will make this trip definitely memorable.
Total miles to be covered will be around 500
