Z13-23: Sailing holidays & Mile builder: UK -> NED (375M)
From Torquay, we will sail across the English Channel to Rotterdam. Weather and tide will eventually determine our route, but the plan is to do this in manageable legs. In general, we will not sail at night for the first few days so that everyone can get used to the ship. If the weather and tides cooperate, we can head to Cowes on the Isle of Wight, along the Needles up the Solent. There might be time to explore the island before we prepare for a long leg to Dover. about 120 miles, which definitky means sailing at night in a watch system.
Dover is an atmospheric workboat harbour with a new marina and with ferries constantly sailing in and out from France, nice to see and we will have to ask permission to enter. Dover castle (with another ruined Roman tower) stands imposingly atop the famous ‘White Cliffs’. If the weather cooperates, we will still have time to visit Dover Castle (with a whole corridor system underneath from WWII), or walk up the White Cliffs of Dover to the lighthouse with stunning views over the English Channel. The lighthouse with a vintage interior serves, among other things, delicious scones, very British, very nice.
We then cross the ‘shipping lanes’ in the straits of Calais, the narrowest and busiest part of the English Channel. The remainder is so incredibly busy with shipping lanes, fishing vessels, fish & wind farms that we first make a tide stop on the French coast.
Then comes the final 110-mile leg to Rotterdam, our season finale. Sailing up the Nieuwe Waterweg is impressive with all the shipping, especially in the dark. The last leg through the city centre is very pretty with Rotterdam’s beautiful new skyline and we also sail under the Erasmus Bridge.
If you like, you can book an extra night on board in Rotterdam for €75 should it be more convenient for your return trip home.
