Eerste alleenstaande zeilreis! (Fellowship 28) 10 feb 2019 20:51 #1020925

But why do you say there are few sailors now? Were there more in the past?


Het is nu winter, en dan varen er weinig mensen. In de zomer lig je vijf dik in de IJsselmeerhavens, maar ook op de waddenhavens is het dan druk.
Je gaat het vanzelf merken, en het went vast wel.

Lekker blijven zeilen.

Obrigado! :cheer: ;)

I'll keep on posting the photos and videos as i make progress, glad you enjoyed them!

These are my first steps: maybe later on - i don't want to make any absolute plans about the timing, i will do it when ready - i will take this ship to Portugal and then perhaps continue onwards if all goes well.

But why do you say there are few sailors now? Were there more in the past?
Indeed i don't see many people from my circle or age (35) doing it actively, and literally no-one doing it in the winter. Just when they were teenagers in dinghy courses. On my case, although i had the curiosity since always, i just found the passion and "balls" to go ahead and learn just half year ago and it got me hooked immediately, just like Hans said before. And it is revealing itself as completely worth it (although it does somehow steal your soul away :laugh: ).

As a side note, now i'm just eagerly waiting for the first real season in the Spring / Summer, since i never actually sailed one, just during Winter. It must be fun and different from what im now used to, since at this moment all the marinas are dead empty, even services are halved or non-functioning. Can't wait for when they come to life when it gets warmer.

It probably brings more problems which im not used to such as excessive traffic, but then there are many other lessons to be learnt. Meanwhile, i'm sailing in cold and foul weather while its less busy, just to get ready for the warmer and crowded season - although i plan to continue sailing all year long after this years' season comes to an end.

Cheers!

Hello fellow countryman :)
I'm also Portuguese living in the Netherlands, and also starting with the sailing bug (still on my early baby steps). I didn't make the step towards boat ownership yet, just had some sporadic sailing experiences.

I'd like to volunteer for crew if you ever need. I don't have much experience so I won't add much value, but I can help you handle some lines. I certainly would love to hear more about how the whole boat ownership experience is going so far.
Cheers,
Tiago

Sure, you’re welcome! Send me a PM with your availability and we can arrange it, since im going nearly every weekend and sometimes during the week as well.
New sailor, living in Amsterdam, limited Dutch skills (het spijt me...)
