Hard sea crossing, wild islands, and very welcoming harbours of two countries.
To warm up, we’ll go through the Dutch locks, canals, and inland seas
and see the Wadden Sea. Then we cross the North Sea — and from flat
Holland we enter a completely different world of rocks, islands
and fjords of southwestern Norway. One thing remains the same:
the locals love everything that can move under sail.

ROUTE HIGHLIGHTS
Exploring the Frisian Isles and Wadden Sea:
The voyage takes us to the less explored Vlieland and the vibrant Terschelling, where nature dominates. The Oerol Festival offers a blend of outdoor performances that resonate with the island’s natural backdrop.
We mark
the difficulty
of this stage
as 4 out of 5.
That means you should be prepared for the challenging conditions. It comes with the possibilities of a strong wind, big waves, low temperature, and offshore passages for a couple of days.

Talking about this exact stage, the most challenging could be 3-days North Sea crossing, and possible upwind sailing along the Norwegian coast. We might split the offshore passage into parts using the stopovers, but it all depends on the weather. Anyway, in June it’s very light, already warm, and not too stormy, so no extreme sailing for sure.
Amsterdam
to Texel:
Departing from the festive atmosphere of Amsterdam during
the Festival Holland, we head to Texel. The route goes through locks,
is marked by iconic windmills, dunes, and eventually leads us to Texel’s diverse landscapes, from tulip fields to sandy beaches, alongside
a significant sailing regatta event.
North Sea
offshore crossing:
From Frisian Isles we have 350 miles of open sea to Norway, that may take us up to 3 days to cross. It all depends on the weather if it’s challenging or not, but we might also make some stops on our way, see below.
Stopovers in Denmark/Heligoland:
The golden sands, seals, and mudflats continue and perhaps even reach their crescendo in Denmark, in the Wadden Sea National Park. The village of Sønderho is consistently called the prettiest in all of Denmark. Another possible stopover is famous German Heligoland island.
Norwegian fjords:
And here’s another world to visit, the fantastic rocky and greeny views of Norway. Flekkefjord, Egersund, and the last one, famous Lysefjord. Here comes beautiful hiking, sightseeing, and unmissable highlights — Preikestolen formation and a boulder between the rocks, Kjeragbolten.
Navigational Challenges:
Cultural Engagement:
This leg of the journey presents a blend of navigational challenges, with strong winds, big waves, and shifting tides, testing our sailing skills and teamwork.
Stargazing and Nature:
Each stop is an opportunity for deep cultural engagement, from experiencing local festivals to exploring the unique landscapes and wildlife of the Frisian Isles and the Wadden Sea.
Building Community:
The journey offers exceptional opportunities for stargazing and encountering northern natural phenomena, enriching our experience with unforgettable sights.
