Join me for a sailing trip. A weekend, or a week – as long as you like.
Sérénité staying behind in the Pacific for good, I now sail again in Zeeland. Sérénité was all about finding peace on my own. Now sailing is different, it is about enjoying a moment with friends. Sharing stories, good food, a glass of wine. Sharing what we have with each other.
Zeeland, in the Netherlands, offers some of the most gorgeous sailing grounds. Lots of light in the sky – this is where the Flemish masters came to paint, and for a reason. Beautiful deserted islands, picturesque villages, good pubs. All this less than one hour drive from Brussels.
I also cook. Gambas with garlic in olive oil and coriander are a favored success. Goes very well with Sardinian wine, trust me. The wine makes more believable my stories about sailing around the world. Everyone who’s tried the combination loves it.
Prince Alex is an OVNI 32, probably the best fast comfortable cruiser on the market. Lots of fun to sail, and with a large table for the dinners. It can accommodate up to four guests. You choose how you want to do it – kick back, sip your beer, meditate; or do it the more sporty way, learn the ropes and how to handle the boat.
I do not do this on commercial charter basis, but will ask guests to contribute. Just give a shout at +32.476.416577 or christo.velkov(at)gmail.com
