As spring has finally arrived in te Netherlands, the Willem Johannes raises the sails to journey a week through The Netherlands. We started in the Marker Wadden which was only founded (read: man-made) in 2017. These small nature reserve island have the function of renewing the birdlife and restoring the saline in the Marker-lake which was dammed in in 1963 and has suffered a little since then. These are magnificent islands to hike on, and vacation. We made a YouTube video which can be viewed here: https://sailingwillemjohannes.nl/our-adventures/?playlist=89098ff&video=28d0045
We then sailed to Lelystad, a young town just across, where we met our children for dinner.
