If you wish to register for an event, please contact the organiser shown in the event details. You will need to be a paid member to register for an event (except if mentioned otherwise in the event). Experts to total novices are welcome to join our sailing events. When organising a sailing event, the organiser will always ask the participants about their sailing skill. The organiser will then, based on everyone’s responses, decide on how best to dived the participants into crews.
Do you remember we used to go sailing? Well we have been advised that it is legal to do so again in Belgium.
I propose a small boat sail – open keel boats (3 to 4 persons per boat) in the Maas Plassen in Limburg on Sunday 4th July. www.sailcenterlimburg.com – they have a nice brochure with descriptions of small towns around the lakes.
Subject to weather etc we propose to sail from Ophaven to Wessem, stop for lunch in a restaurant, and return.
This is an event for beginners or advanced sailors, who are bisc members.
The event will cost between €30-€40, with lifejackets available at €3. We meet to share cars, at Roodebeek metro car park (on the north side of Ave Paul Hymans-opposite the Woluwe shopping Centre) ready to leave at 08:30 and depart in various cars for Ophaven. Make sure you’re on time!
We will sail all day and have a lunch break in Wessem. We start heading back to Brussels at around 18:00. Please bring warm and waterproof clothing in case of showers. Life jackets can be hired (€3).
Please contact me as soon as possible. The people there are very friendly, but less relaxed than some places. Once we have reserved the boats they are ours and we must pay for them. So, we need to reserve them before someone else does. And please don’t say you’ll come if you mean you might come if the sun shines, or if you don’t get a better offer.
You will need to be a paid member to take part.
