The Oosterschelde is a varied area that makes for terrific sailing. There are many attractive and nice little marinas. The water is unbelievably clear and in summer, people love to swim here. Remember to look around you when you’re sailing, so you may spot porpoises or seals in the water. At low tide, you’ll see seals basking in the sun on the banks near a gully. When you’re sailing across the Oosterschelde, it is important to be aware of the tidal movement and the currents that go with it.

Sailing with a skipper or taking a sailing course?
