Get outside and get some fresh air?
Would you like to sail for a day with up to 50 people or a whole weekend with up to 32 people? That’s possible with the Poseidon. If you think it’s time to do something different with your colleagues than just working together, we offer you the opportunity on board! Compared to the familiar workplace, working together while sailing offers completely new perspectives. Sailing is a team sport and there is no usual division of roles and therefore a unique opportunity to get to know each other in a different way.
We will guide your group during the trip and offer you the opportunity to take over the ship. You will set the sails, operate the sheets and winches, and perhaps even steer the ship under full sail. Meanwhile, the Poseidon glides through the water and you enjoy the fresh sea air and breathtaking views of the Wadden Sea.
Food and drink
Good food and drink is very important on board and is part of a nice sailing trip. We offer different packages to spoil you on the way. Have a look on our website under food and drinks.
A weekend, day or half day sailing can be well combined with a team meeting or other activities in a port city. We will plan a tailor-made trip according to your wishes and will be happy to think along with you.
Time for each other on a classic sailing ship
The Poseidon offers everything to have a really good time. On this classic sailing ship you can really make yourself comfortable and linger in the former hold. Our salon invites you to talk, play games and eat and drink together. The central heating provides comforting warmth and the traditional nautical furnishings create a special atmosphere. No deadlines, no rush, just be together comfortably and carefree without the normal obligations of everyday life.
The beds are already made and the galley offers you everything to prepare good food and drinks. Choose a date and look under availability in our calendar!
We leave the harbor of Harlingen and set sail. For a nice sailing trip we need support to sail the ship, but of course the relaxation has top priority! The engine goes off and the wind drives us away – we enjoy the unique pictures of the Wadden Sea in the fresh sea air.
Where is the journey going?
Before we leave we discuss a nice route, depending on your wishes and on wind and tide. To a great island, a sandbank or just spend the night outside at anchor – together we will make your trip an unforgettable experience.
Not in the mood to take care of food and drinks yourself?
We like to think along with you. Under food and drinks you will find our offer.
The Poseidon has 32 berths spread over 2 cabins aft and 12 cabins forward. Well suited for companions and teenagers.
Sailing is a team activity!
Life on board demands cooperation, nothing goes by itself. So roll up your sleeves and join in! It already starts when boarding the ship. The luggage and the provisions have to be brought on board and put away, everyone has to move into his own cabin.
The skipper welcomes you together, explains how everything works in the ship and how to behave on board for a pleasant and safe stay. You will quickly settle in and feel comfortable on the Poseidon. Together we will discuss your sailing trip and depending on your wishes and wind and tide we will make the trip an unforgettable experience.
Sailing experience does not matter
Before we sail, the crew will give a safety briefing on deck. Together we get the ship ready for the trip. We unpack the sails, get everything ready to set, explain the most important actions and practice them once. Also below deck the Poseidon is prepared – the portholes are well closed and everything in the cabins and in the lounge is made seaworthy.
We cast off the lines and as soon as we have left the harbor we set the sails. Cranking the winch, pulling ropes and sheets, shooting up the lines, all hands on deck! With each maneuver, the position of the sails must be adjusted. There is enough to do and everyone finds his place on board.
After a nice sailing trip we are approaching our destination, the harbor. The sails are lowered and packed away, the deck is cleaned up. In the harbor we look again at the driven route on the map and the skipper explains what is worth seeing and experiencing here. The shore leave can begin.
Food & Drinks
The galley on board offers everything to cook for a large group. This requires some preparation and it is advisable to think about it beforehand. What do I cook for a large group, what groceries can I already bring on board and what do I get on site?
Do you have questions or do you need tips?
We are happy to think along with you. On our website you will find different options under food and drinks.
Come aboard and sail
Feel like sailing, but you’re alone or with just a few people? Sign up for a sailing trip. Everything is organized for you aboard the Poseidon. Comforter, towels, wonderful food and drink and a relaxed atmosphere.
Sailing experience is not required. Together we set the sails and everyone is invited to help according to their own abilities. From young to old, everyone is welcome. Enjoy the fresh sea air and the wind in your sails.
We offer breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner daily. For self-service, coffee, tea, various soft drinks, (non-alcoholic) beer, white and red wine are ready for you.
Do you have any special needs?
In case of intolerances, allergies, or diets, just let us know in advance. Then our cook can take it into account.
If you find it more pleasant to be on board already one evening before, book the trip with a pre-overnight stay. From 8 pm you are welcome and will be greeted with coffee and pastries. Enjoy a drink at our bar and the vacation has begun! In the morning breakfast is ready for you and with a cup of coffee you can already look around on deck and enjoy the view.
