Sequitur's Successor


Here is an update on the refit of Zonder Zorg, the 1908 skūtsje that we have purchased to replace Sequitur.

Re: Sequitur's Successor

Love at first sight?

I had posted about those traditional Dutch boats with their strange and now modern bows with a deceiving sailing performance.

They make very nice living aboard boats.

Were are you going to keep it? Or are you going to sail the European water ways?

Many talk about the French Channels and they are certainly nice but many don't know that you can sail on the river and channels from the North sea to the Black sea, through the Rhine and Danube, passing by some the most beautiful European cities on the way.

Re: Sequitur's Successor

One of those on the European canals must be as close to perfect serenity as is possible to achieve on Earth.

If you don't already know about it, check out the Botter "Groote Beer" - might give you some ideas or at least dreams. I was on it when it was here and it was quite incredible.

We intend doing a post-refit shake-down in the Netherlands, then when satisfied, slowly making our way through Belgium and into France to wander through the wines and cheeses for a few years.

There are more than 45,000 kilometres of navigable inland waterways in Europe. At over 24,000 nautical miles, that's well over a circumnavigation's worth.

Hello, Sequitur -- all the best on your European canal journey. For the benefit of the others, "Zonder Zorg" (Dutch) means "without worry" and that is what we wish you!

Re: Sequitur's Successor

And, as you pass Antwerp on the Scheldt, making your way south to Ghent (assuming that is the route you take, unless you choose your southbound on the Meuse), you're close to our original home as you pass the mouth of the river Rupel (we are now in Canada... for a long time already).

Re: Sequitur's Successor

Can strongly recommend the Canal du Midi. It was built before the Industrial Revolution and follows the contours of the land rather than going straight. Many of the locks have curved sides. Goes through many vineyards and history back to the Romans.

Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.

The passage through Belgium is still down the road (canal) a bit, but we have been thinking of doing the quieter and more scenic Maas/Meuse.
