Sailing on the traditional Dutch sailboat Jacobsschelp
Turning the engine off, setting sails and feel the wind powering the beautiful flat bottom vessel is what this is all about! The Jacobsschelp’s rigging and leeboards are operated manually, making the understanding of sailing and manoeuvring of the various sails easier for
all. The ship’s 75 cm draft enables us to go to almost any destination within our sailing area. For the active landlubbers and more experienced sailors, there is plenty to do on board. The cockpit is very comfortable to hang out in while the foredeck is ideal for lounging. The interior is furnished with a large table allowing groups to play games or simply enjoy a book.
The beautiful Jacobsschelp’s gorgeous carpentry and woodwork will provide guests with a rich/warm atmosphere. The vessel’s facilities include a fully equipped kitchen with serving dishes and cutlery, running hot and cold water, refrigerator and a separate toilet with lavatory. It is possible to stand upright everywhere inside the boat except in the cabins in front of the mast
