An evaluation after 6 years of sailing the Stoere Meid.

A TW28 is a wonderfull boat. The Stoere meid (a TW28!) is a wonderfull boat for two people who stayed for a longer time. This year we sailed her for 4 month. With a little break for the marriage of our daughter. So we did two trips, one to the north of our country and after the marriage one to Belgium.

The trip to the north was an adventure, we would do the Waddenzee. It is a small sea between the main land and 5 islands. At low tide the Waddenzee isn't a sea anymore, only a some trenches and sandbars. But it was an adventure to visit the islands.
Image The weather was nice, hardly any wind and a fast passage. Image

The Netherlands is a small country, only 350 km by 180 km, but we have more then 5000 km of navigable rivers, canals and lakes! So their is a lot to see.

This year we run 300 hours and used an averange of 1,6 liter/hour at 1600 RPM. Than shee runs at a speed of 9,5 / 10 km/h. which is good.

Next year? May be Germany (Berlin, Vor Pommern/Schwerin!)

At sea you cannot see this:

Or this:

And how about this:

I once was a nurse so this is also got my attention:

Sailing the (north)sea is an adventure, but these old places are nice, very nice :D .
But who knowes, one day .....

Best wishes to everyone!

When Peter Lus writes his annual evaluation, I decided to write mine too.
I subscribe to Peter's cry from the heart: more TW28 must be built.
This year we sailed to the Wadden Sea and Belgium again with the Stoere meid. More than 2800 km covered in 290 hours and about 480 liters of diesel oil. So an average consumption of 1.6 liters per hour.
The highlights of the trip: The Wadden Islands, the four historic boat lifts of Thieu, the new boat lift of Strepy (72 meters), the Hellendvlak of Ronquieres and finally a reunion with Peter and his wife.
The plans for the coming season: Berlin and the lake area Das Blaue Paradies (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern).
And if that doesn't happen, then: Maas-Mosel-Rhine.

I am happy to see that Colin is also starting his Project again.

Very nice Allard!!!
Love to do this too when I have some more sparetime…
And you’re right; much more to see on the inland waters then on the North Sea.
But on the other hand what about the British Islands? Jersey and Guernsey.
That would be an adventure;-)

Hee Patric, good to see you! We finaly should meet somewhere. We have only moved to the north of the country (Steenwijk).
No, I'm not looking for the British ilands. My secret wish is to go to Aigues mortes and a little trip on the Mediterranean.

Groetjes, Allard
