2017 Friends trip to Holland and Friesland: Make friends with Friends!

Don’t miss the boat, literally! We have just 6 places remaining

So hurry, I need to know who is coming by the year’s end, as I’ve signed the charter contract for Ideal; a 105ft, 2-masted, historic, sea-going schooner. So far 11 of the 17 places have been taken.

If you’d like to see what the ship is like, look at: www.de-ideaal.nl the language is in both Dutch and German, but I’m sure descriptions will be self evident. The recent issue of the Hunters Friends Newsletter has more detailed information on the planned itinerary of the trip. However, flexibility is a key element of my planning too. Travelling to, and around, Holland will be as a group. During the week we’ll visit some of the unique, beautiful, Frisian North Sea islands as well as picturesque maritime towns and villages in Holland and Friesland.

Over the last few years at least 60 Hunters Friends have enjoyed coming along on this trip, some many times! Now, maybe, you’d like to come along too! The cost for 7 nights on board will be around £400pp, payable in stages. The dates are: Depart from Harwich on Sat 17 Jun 2017 returning on Mon 26 Jun 2017, although an extended stay, visiting Zeeland, will be an option.

Oooh! And, of course, you do NOT need to be a Friend of the Hunters Fleet to join in. But, it will help if you like ships, boats, sailing and matters maritime.
