FINAL 1 or 2 SPOTS. Please send us an email at email@example.com first to ensure we still have spots! Or better call 0495-345144. And then fill out the form on this page. Join us for a great day on the water, with 45 other expats!
We are happy to have added the super-de-luxe sailing yacht of the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 509 category (see below). If you register for this boat, or if you registered for De Arenal, the group switches after lunch, so you have the chance to experience both boats and enjoy the hospitality of both captains.
On Belgium’s National Holiday we always travel to Oostende for an exciting sailing trip on the North Sea. We always arrange two great sailing boats for a relaxing day out on the open waters of the North Sea. Our first boat is a traditional wooden two-master of 28-meters that offers much space for a wonderful time. And if you really love active sailing, and are not afraid of “hanging” a bit in the boat, then our second 14-meters sailboat is going to be your ultimate sailing experience. Depending on the wind conditions we set sail for either Nieuwpoort or Blankenberge, where we will have lunch before returning to Oostende. A return train ticket with reserved seats to/from Oostende is already arranged for you, so the only thing you have to do is to take your sunglasses and sunscreen and let us do the rest. As of 23 June we can also confirm an additional magnificent sailing boat of 15-meters.
This trip will fill up. Do not wait too long making your reservation!

Who can join us?
Expat Club is known for welcoming a wide variety of international people. This creates a special, open-minded, safe and friendly environment in which everyone should feel comfortable. You do not even have to be a member, and of course Belgians are more than invited too. We always welcome many solo travellers, couples, retirees, small groups of friends and on this trip also families (only teenagers).
How to add a child ticket?
Expat Club loves welcoming the youngest expats, also for this exciting sailing trip! A regular ticket costs €125 or €165, depending on the boat, but for children under 18 we offer €30 and €15 discount, respectively on these boats. However, be aware that the smaller boat goes faster and that it is not appropriate for younger children. We advise a minimum age of 12 years old. Please contact us first at firstname.lastname@example.org.
