Sailing out from Lemmer!

ON sunday we didplanned a sailboottrip and Rowena her mother did the foods pre pairing on board with just a litle bit help on board from me and Rowena... WE had a meet-up point around 07.30 AM, because the organizers need to unload the food/ drinks out of the cars... We had enough help from everybody... Thanks... THere was litle panic about the parking thing with blue lines... I had contact with capitijn about it and it was ok, but next time it,s smart to put that on forum... If I knew it was getting problems with parking, I would do it people.... The morning started with rain and cloutes, but it get better the longer we wait. First we had, 'Sukerbolle' breath sticky with sucker and coffe... I met the Capitain, a very sweet and spontanious person.

Maike and Mickey from England
.. I had contact with him before, to pre-paire the things.... The group was compleet around 9, 9.30 AM and we could sail out at 10 AM , because we were in between a few other sailboots....,

We had a few cancles for sailing for good reasons and we got a few last minute people, like Rowena her Brother and other family...Around 10 we sailed out and it was relaxing.. THe sailboot was better and bigger then last year... We had the plan to sail in to Sloten, the smallest city in the Netherlands with 700 people living there.... and to stop and to go in to Sloten for 30 minutes, afther that go to Woudsend and passing it to Heeg.

... In Heeg it was the plan to go real sailing if there was enough wind... For sure the sails will get out and people needed to help the kapitein... WE did sailed a few moment on the bigg water, on the Ijselmeer... Last year we did only sail on it with a lot of action....  The plan worked out great... WE had to pass a few busy bridges with boot traffic... It was a nice experience for me...  We had also 'Oranje koek' on board and it,s a frisian cake with creme... During lunch we had breathboll with yellow cream and sandwiched and many other jummy stuff with meat, fish and vegatarian...

MOst of the time people stayed on dek, watching and, talking and relaxing moments... There were moments with sun, and cloud, litle rain, but for a short time... I wich there was more wind, but the people did liked it like this.

Nanne, my good Frisian friend
.. During the day we had chees, meatthings and lovely JUMMY 'Haring with union, most people did like, NOT.... hihihihi....  You loved or hate it... We made sure the kapitain and his help got enough... I heard from everybody there was to much foods... It,s for a bigg group, for a whole day, soooo you never know! Better enough, then to short... We went sailing from 10 AM till 6PM....

Afther the sailboottrip me and Rowena, moter cleaned up the kitchen etc...  halve of the group had to go back home, because of work on monday... Like 15 people went with us for diner n LEmmer at the Lemsterbaai... It was on the same street, were the sailboot was laying.... Diner was good, but there were two tables and we had 5 cancled, so one table was with 10 and the other 5 people.. We could not make one table...   Around 10 PM we went back to Leeuwarden.... Rowena went with me to pick up her car and stuf... I went around 11 PM to a bar , almost prived with the rest... It was my plan to drink only one drink, but nooo, it was much more and stayed longer... I had a great time and it was for me very relaxing.... A good thing to end a great day.... I could let loss everything then.... I went home at 2 in the morning I think... I walked back with a good feeling... happy!
