I love the water...Both motor and sailing boats at sea or in inland waters are very fascinating. Whether a blue water trip on the baltic sea by SY Corella or on a motor boat on Friesland lake and canal system, we have great fun.
In 2008 we had a wunderfull trip on MS Ryanne in Friesland/Netherlands.
Waiting for entering the lock in Blokzijl.
In July 2009 we sailed with the new Corella, a X-Yacht 37 in the Biskay, France
In August 2009 we sailed with the Sailing Yacht Chansk, a Hunter 320 in the Danish South Sea (Baltic Sea). From Flensburg we sail to Sonderburg, Söby, Aerösköping and back via Sonderburg, Marina Minde to Flensburg.
In September 2009 we have again a trip through Friesland. We are 6 people and have a lot of fun. MS Blueflower: "Stately first-class yacht with utmost privacy. Every double cabin has it's entrance to it's own bathroom. Elegantly furnished, well equipped".
In July 2010 we sail again with the new Corella. This time arround the Hebrides, Scotland.(Oban, Tobermory, Loch Aline, Dunstaffnage, Kilmelford, Port Ellen, Ardfern, Balviar Bay, Craobh)
The Corella is a 37ft-yacht (X-Yachts, typ X-37, 11.35m length o.A.). She was handed over to AYC in April 2008 and offers all features for deep sea sailing with excellent performance. The Corella is not only a perfect sailing yacht, she offers a comfortable accommodation as well.
In July 2011 we sail a Bavaria 32cr on the IJsselmeer in the Netherlands. We sail from Lemmer to Enkhuizen, Volendam, Urk and back to Lemmer.
In August 2012 we sail with the Corella across the English Channel from Cherbourg to the Isle of Wight. We are a crew of 5 persons: Frank, Jochen, Uli, Matthias and I.
We sail through the Solent from Yarmouth to Cowes, Bucklers Hard, Portsmouth and Southampton.

In June/July 2013 we charter in Lemmer-IJsselmeer a Bavaria 35cr sailing yacht. We are at first 3 persons, Jochen, Matthias and myself. We sail via Stavoren and Makkum to the islands Vlieland and Terschelling and back again via Makkum to Lemmer.
On the way there a third person, Frank joins the crew. This time we were able to enjoy the two islands in the North Sea.
In August 2014 we charter with our old known crew in Greifswald, Baltic Sea, an Oceanis 343, the Donald. This time we sail around the island Rügen.
We stop on the island of Hiddensee and explore the island by hired bicycles.
In August 2015 we charter with the same crew (Frank, Jochen, Matthias, Peter) in Sint Annaland a Bavaria 37C sailing yacht. This time we want to explore the Schelde delta in southern Holland. By best weather we enjoy the trip but are hardly able to sail. From Sint Annaland we went to following ports: Roompot, Veere, Zieriksee, Willemstad, Brouwershaven, Bruinisse.

At best weather we enjoy a relaxing trip. From Töplitz near Werder we went to Potsdam, Spandau, Rummelsburg, Zeuthen, again Potsdam and back to Töplitz.
In September 2018 we wanted to sail in Friesland (NL). Frank, Daniel, Jochen U. and Peter went on board in Drachten. In Holland is charter in some respects better organized. The cars can be parked free of charge and boots are in a better shape. Water and Diesel tanks are topped up when taking over the boat.
We have planned an interesting trip. From Drachten we go to Grou, then to Sneek, further on passing Sloten going to Lemmer. From there we went through the Kalenberger Gracht to Blokzijl.
