About us

Sailing for all is the motto of SailWise. Since 1976 we organize water sport activities and active water sport holidays for people with a disability. For this purpose we have three completely adapted accommodations: the two-masted clipper Lutgerdina, the water sports accommodation It Sailhûs (with our catamaran Beatrix) and the water sport island Robinson Crusoe.

Accessible, challanging and active

Through the combination of accessible accommodations and an active water sports program SailWise offers ideal opportunities for  enjoyable holidays, aquatic activities, school camps or a family reunion. You can come in a group or register as an individual.

Many friends clubs, institutions, special education groups and even rehabilitation centres make use of our facilities. This can be for a challenging group holiday to close the school year or for a day or midweek of sailing for rehabilitation purposes. But you can also come with your friends or familyto enjoy a long weekend of sailing!

It is possible tomake special arrangements for groups for one or several days at any of our accommodations. For individuals SailWise offers various alternatives, for different target groups, during the entire season. Our reservation officer is more than happy tomake a suitable proposal for you or give you additional information about options. Please visit our website to find out about all possibilitieswe offer and actual prices of standard arrangements.

Normal if possible, special if needed

This is our motto that guides the discussions with our guests about a varied and challenging program at any of our accommodations. The intention is that everybody plays an active role during our holidays. Together we will make sure that these will be challenging, intense and above all enjoyable. One moment you will be opening up new horizons, whilst next time you are just having fun in sun, wind and water, admiring the beautiful environment. Nothing is obligatory, everything is possible.

All tastes are catered for

At SailWise the basic idea is that of possibilities, not of restrictions. We introduce people to water sports and let them enjoy themselves to themax; and on top of that, we offer you the possibility, through clever adaptations, to become skilled in the various branches of water sports – and this all in a great holiday atmosphere!

Accessible and sportive!

Holidays at the SailWise accommodations are actually more than only sailing. Strolling around in picturesque small ports, relaxing at a terrace, enjoying breakfast at theWadden, being anchored and admiring the starry sky, sitting together around the campfire,makingmusic or barbecuing on a raft, it’s all possible!

A collective close of the school year, a day of sailing for rehabilitation purposes, taking out the boat for a sail with friends or family. Just contact us and find out about the numerous possibilities we offer. Security and quality are of the utmost importance at SailWise. That is why every tour or activity at all our accommodations is supported by a professional and well educated crew. Each of our accommodations
is fully adapted, providedwith all the possible comforts and totally accessible forwheelchairs. And of coursewe have our NBAV-certification (assigned by the Nederlandse Branchevereniging voor Aangepaste Vakanties/Dutch Branch Association for Adapted Holidays).
