Around the world with Jachthaven Wetterwille

On February 19, sixteen-year-old Tamara Beekman will depart on the journey of a lifetime and we’re joining her. So to speak. Together with 29 other students, Tamara will sail a two-master from Saint Martin to Cuba. During a 45-day voyage through the Caribbean, she will learn how to navigate, collaborate and study aboard the Wylde Swan, aided by the expert crew and teachers of organisation Masterskip.

Because we believe in the power of dreams and of water sports, Jachthaven Wetterwille decided to sponsor Tamara’s trip. In return, she will share her Caribbean adventures with us on social media so keep your eyes on our Facebook and Instagram pages. We wish Tamara an unforgetable time and hope to go sailing with her in Loosdrecht some time next summer.

Keep your head cool

Because of the ongoing heat, the marina has been even more busy than usual these last couple of weeks. Ice cream supplies swindled, the terraces of our restaurants were always full and our staff built a unique swimming platform for berth holders that can be found in front of pontoon A at the Interboat side. Despite previous concern, we can happily assure everyone that no blue algae have been found in the waters of Loosdrecht.

Swimming in the lake is thus 100% safe.

If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to drop by our (relatively cool) marina office. Enjoy the last of these hot summer days!

Safety first

As a 5 Gold Anchor marina, Jachthaven Wetterwille gives safety the utmost priority. Our buildings and grounds are secured by CCTV 24/7 and our gates keep unsollicited visitors at bay. Nonetheless, theft of boats and outboard engines is still a reality in many marinas. Therefore we gladly share some tips with you that may help you keep what's yours safe:

  • Lock your outboard engine and/or boat. If your berth does not yet have cleats or rings big enough for your lock, please inform us and we will gladly install them for you. If you do secure the boat, please provide a spare key to keep in the marina office in case of any calamity.
  • Register your boat and engine. This will help the authorities on their way in case of theft. Just fill in the registration card via www.politie.nl and you will always have the necessary details at hand.
  • Take pictures of your boat and engine. This will make finding them a lot easier.
  • Report any case of theft to the local police. Spotted suspicious behaviour and not sure how to handle? Inform a member of our staff. Together we can make the marina even safer.

    Jachthaven Wetterwille makes the news

    The winter season has started, but things at Jachthaven Wetterwille are everything but quiet.
    The winter storage is in full swing and we are able to look back upon a successful summer with various innovations in and around the marina. The local and international press apparently caught wind of our hard work. This week, local media outlet GooiTV paid us a visit to interview marina manager Mieke about the ongoing storage activities. You can watch the fragment here from 3:14 onward.

    Meanwhile, the marina also got featured in the September issue of Fore & Aft, the magazine of The Yacht Harbour Association. The article relates how our team combines environmental awareness with creativity and craftsmanship in the form of upcycling. You can check it out for yourself here on page 62.
    We hope you enjoy reading it and wish you a cosy winter.

    5 Gold Anchors for the third time in a row

    We are honoured and extremely pleased to share that Jachthaven Wetterwille has once again been awarded 5 Gold Anchors by The Yacht Harbour Association. This quality label is the highest of its kind and ranks us among the best marinas worldwide. We received the top score for the third time in a row, an extra reason to be proud!

    While summer may be drawing to a close, the boating season is not over yet, as September has wonderful things in store.
    From September 22 to 24, the annual Dijkfestival will be held in Loosdrecht, with music and fun activities for young and old, both on water and ashore. The parade of lights featuring beautifully illuminated boats will sail the Loosdrecht and Vuntus Lakes on Saturday night. An event not to be missed!

    20 years Blue Flag at Wetterwille

    On May 18th, Jachthaven Wetterwille received the Blue Flag on the beach in Scheveningen. We accepted this eco-label together with 121 other marinas and 61 beaches.

    As one of only 17 marinas, we were also awarded the Green Pennant for our outstanding efforts in environmental issues and awareness.

    Jachthaven Wetterwille first joined the Blue Flag campaign in 1998, which makes this the 20th consecutive year that we won the award. In addition, Blue Flag Netherlands celebrates its 30th anniversary. Cause for a celebration and the start of an even greener future!

    The start of Summer at Jachthaven Wetterwille

    The new season has officially started and we're already looking forward to a Summer full of water fun. We're happy to share some of the latest innovations in the marina with you.

    The most charming update can most definitely be admired in our marina office. The bow of BM "De Liefde", a small wooden sailboat typical for the region, was transformed into a unique counter. The stern will in turn be repurposed into a sleeping bunk with convertible roof, in which you will soon be able to spend the night on top of the green roof over our showroom. Camping under the stars in an old sailboat overlooking the Loosdrecht Lakes, it doesn't get any more romantic than this.

    Slightly less exciting, but just as interesting is our new slipway at the Interboat side of the marina. The slipway now runs further into the water and the slope was decreased for maximum user friendliness. Pier B on the Wetterwille side also got an upgrade. We replaced decking in several places and provided new cleats.

    As most of the boats are in the water waiting for the weather to pick up, we can hardly wait for Summer to begin. See you soon at the marina.

    Wetterwille for charity

    Each year, we support various charity organisations in the Netherlands and beyond. At the start of the summer season, we gladly inform you of the projects the marina is currently involved in.

    Hospital in Gambia

    Jachthaven Wetterwille recently donated medical supplies to Brikama Health Centre in the Gambia, where Eveline, daughter of general manager Mieke, is volunteering as a midwife. In previous years, we sponsored a clinic in Tanzania and a home for street children in South Africa and acted as ambassador for Oxfam Novib, which supports entrepreneurs in the Third World through micro-financing.

    Waterfun for everyone

    We believe that water sports should be available to everyone. That's why Jachthaven Wetterwille gives a discount to wheelchair users wishing to rent our specially equipped lounge pontoon. We are collaborating with local nursing home De Beukenhof for the second year in a row and now also facilitate free sailing for cancer patients through a charity called VaarKracht.

    From water sports to just plain sports

    Always happy to show our sporty side, we are proud to announce that Jachthaven Wetterwille is the official sponsor of the Belgian veteran judo team at the European Championship for Judo Masters in Porec, Croatia. We wish the whole team good luck with their training and hope they bring back a medal or two in June. Keep an eye on our website for more updates!

    What's new

    Refurbished restaurant

    On July 1st, our beloved restaurant In de Watertuin reopened its doors under new management. Harry van der Pas and his wife Joyce are dying to get to know you and serve you delicious food and drinks. We at Wetterwille all look forward to trying the new menu, but we also want to thank Leon for his 19 years of service!

    New pier

    The biggest news this summer is the refurbishment of Piers E and F on the Wetterwille side of the marina. These two piers are being renewed completely to make room for more berths. We are finishing several sloop berths with fingerpiers as well as some berths for smaller boats. The new spaces have already been assigned and the piers are expected to be fully occupied by mid April.

    SUP center

    In the showroom on the Interboat parking lot, SUP center ikSUP will open its doors come spring. Here, you will be able to rent gear and/or book lessons. The new center will be the place to be for fans of paddleboarding and anyone up to try this trendy water sport.

    Gym

    The gym above our dry-stack hangar is already frequented by a couple of sporty berth holders. If you are also interested in getting fit while enjoying a beautiful view over the marina, please come by the marina office for more info. Use of the gym is totally free for our customers, so there goes your last excuse.

    As a marina with 5 Gold Anchors, the Blue Flag and the Green Pennant (an additional award for outstanding environmental practices we received last year), we are constantly looking for improvement. If you have any suggestions or remarks, please feel free to send us an e-mail or drop by the office.

    We look forward to a beautiful season and hope to see you soon in the marina!
