Passing through from Sweden- need information on NL
« on: 17 May, 2011, 11:33:00 »
Hi,
we have been members of the club since we bought our 31HT 2 years ago. Now we have equipped the boat and will travel from Sweden (where we live) to Brazil. We will pass through the Netherlands and plan to go the channels to the Mediterrainian.
Since we are members of the club we would like to meet some of you when we will be there. (around June 20) We will enter the channel system in Delfzil and go towards the Isselmer.

ALSO: We would be very very grateful if you could advice us where we can demast in the Amsterdam area...

Thank you for your help.

Hope seeing you soon.

Simon (S/Y Ohana, former Hybris, Linköping, Sweden)

Hi in almost any Dutch harbour you could demast your ship. I would not worry about this item.

You can demast at Jachtservice Muiden at the mouth of river Vecht, as far as I know that is the closest near Amsterdam. There is also a fuel station which might be handy if you want to sail a large piece on the engine.

Not really. In Lelystad Haven, my former harbour, for instance you cannot demast. In Marina Volendam, my current harbour ditto. Sixhaven in Amsterdam, no demasting nor in the harbours in Muiden. To mention just a few   ;)

ok my mistake. Some helpful information than.

In my harbour in Lelystad, The 'Houtribhaven' you can demast your ship. Ijmuiden is closer to Amsterdam, however I think this will be much more expensive than demasting in my harbour. (I pay about 50 Euro for demasting my ship, but I am a 'member of the harbour').

Beware you would need to motor to Amsterdam across the Markermeer. No problem to do so.

If you are interested here is the telephone number for aquiring more information: +31 320-260424. Best to call before 12:00 o'clock.

With the risk of being a know-it-all: you only have to cross the IJmeer, from Muiden to Amsterdam  ;)   IJmuiden is not really an option for Simon since he well enter the Netherlands near Delfzijl.

off-topic:  Klopt maar de route van Muiden naar A'dam gaat over het IJmeer en daar ging het volgens mij om  :D

Anyway, if there are any members around the 20th of June on the IJsselmeer/Markermeer/IJmeer then you van contact Simon to meet somewhere. If I'm in Volendam around that day I'll let you know.

Hi,

you can put down your mast in Durgerdam (not on thursdays) or in Uitdam. Both very cosy harbours. call beforehand, numbers you can find in the Almanak.
You are certainly aware of the fact that in the netherlands there is theStaande Mast Route (Standing Mast oute). You can cross the Country entirely with standing rigg.
So why not do that? Pass through Amsterdam at night and sail through the gardens of the dutch (very lovely) and go down to Strijensas. There you can put down
your rigg as well and dive into the Maas. Or go on with standing rigg through to Antwerp, put it down there somewhere. Through the belgian channels you will reach france in no time.
Helpful information on the Staande Mast route, also in english, is given on www.rws.nl, search for Staandemast.

Enjoy!

Alex
