I would like to hire a dinghy to sail during a holiday in the Netherlands in
August? I will be travelling from Amsterdam, past Ijsslmeer and up the coast
and into Germany. I would be grateful for recommendations. Ideally I would be
able to able to find a sailing school which can offer a few hours tuition
then allow me to hire a dinghy for a day or two. I have a British RYA
intermediate qualification. I can't speak Dutch I'm sorry. Kind regards. John
there is a ferry to one of the islands as well
Shrink the map to find the location.
More here, mainly in Friesland, but including one on De Kaag lakes near Leiden,
under the Schiphol flight path. The De Kaag lakes are busy at weekends but
almost empty on week days.

BMs are keel boats similar to the sort of boat there used to be on the Broads,
without a cabin.
This one in Heeg in Friesland is popular and well known.
The website only in Dutch and German.
You don't need a licence to sail a dinghy or any boat up to 15 metres in NL that
doesn't go fast.
If you need help ask.
