Sailing holidays on an individual basis

Delivery trips

Franeker (NL) - Kiel (D) and Kiel (D) - Franeker (NL)
From Franeker in the Netherlands, Avatar starts on a wonderful sailing trip along the Dutch and German Wadden islands to Kiel (Germany). On the first evening you are welcomed aboard the Avatar. First an enjoyable meal is served and after that there is time to get to know one another.

The next morning, the weather forecast and possible sailing destinations are discussed. A first stop is possible at the beautiful island Terschelling, where you will have time for hiking or biking. If wind and weather conditions permit, a visit to Helgoland is one other main attraction during this trip. About 70 km off mainland the red sand-stone rock with its green land steeply stands out against the German Sea. Because of the gulf stream Helgoland offers a good climate and unique nature. Then we set sail for the Nord-Ostsee-Canal to Kiel.

Depending on how the trip has gone up to that point, we may still have time to sail on the Baltic Sea. On the final day the trip ends in the port of Kiel Holtenau.

In October we will make the trip in reverse direction.

Wilhelmshaven (D) - Kiel (D)
At the end of September 2021 we sail from Wilhelmshaven to Kiel. On the day of arrival, many sailing ships can be viewed in Wilhelmshaven that are present for the annual Wilhelmshaven Sailing Cup. If the wind is favorable, we will visit Helgoland. One day we will be sailing through the Kiel Canal and maybe we will have time to sail on the Baltic Sea.
