Eco Day Sail in Amsterdam & Ijsselmeer with SAILMATE & Oceanpreneur | August 2019

Join Social Entrepreneurs Anna & Suzanna for an exclusive ecominded daysail in and near Amsterdam. A unique, nature minded and adventurous way to experience Amsterdam.


  • Cruising & Sailing through Amsterdam and the IJsselmeer
  • Mini instruction, active participation (if desired) and great intro into sailing & boat life.
  • Includes food made with love. We’ll provide you with vegetarian food and drinks, sourced as local, ethical and zero waste as possible. We’ll prepare cruising style on board.
  • No need to fly in! This is a low impact travel opportunity with the marina close to the train. Amsterdam is trainwise very well connected in Europe and from Central station the Marina is just a free-ferry ride of 10 min away.
  • Adventure with minimal ecological footprint. On the boat we are sailing as much as possible and only use the engine when really needed.
  • Sustainable living, simplicity and zero waste travel chats, tips, inspiration, and idea exchange. Suzy has been living minimalistic at sea and small islands for + 5 years and will share tips, ins and out on living with limited resources, being resourceful, and the positive and negative impact of our actions. Above all, what we can do as individuals to contribute.
  • Expand your network and connection to a community of ocean lover & carers. The Ocean Nomads people are the number one reason why people come back joining our adventures. It’s the connections and the community that will accelerate you dreams and mission.
  • Small groups. There is 3 Crew and Max 4 Guests.

Amsterdam City & Ijsselmeer

The Plan in brief

At 10.00 AM we unite and soon after navigate out of the marina, though Amsterdam city, the locks and then the Ijsselmeer.

We visit the unique, authentic Island Marken, where if the weather allows and we are all happy we can have a lunch break in the mini city. We’ll put up the gennaker sailing if conditions are suitable!

We’ll be back around 17.00, chill chat and stay in touch with each other and connecting you to more like you via the Ocean Nomads network.

The Ocean Nomads philosophy

We share and care for the Ocean Nomads ‘slow sailing’ philosophy. The focus is on simplicity, health, local travel and community connection, active, adventure and sustainability mindset, walking the talk, and collaboration.

Ocean Nomads is a tribe of young (by heart:)) adventurous ocean lovers that are after an active outdoor ocean lifestyle. We share the fun, ideas & projects on low-budget, mindful, self-sufficient positive impact ways to live and travel sustainably at sea.
