Loodsbotter Texelstroom makes sailing trips from the harbor of Oudeschild and you can spend the night on the ship in the harbor. Sailing trips De stoere pilot botter Texelstroom (built 1906) is kept in service by an enthusiastic group of trained volunteers. The ship was thoroughly restored around the turn of the century and largely restored to its original state. It is still clear to see that the Texelstroom was built for pilots at the time to pilot ships off the coast of Groningen and Den Helder, it is a real work boat with watertight bulkheads and a sail with "Loodswezen" on it. From Oudeschild you can make various trips with a maximum of 12 people. One or more 'quay trips' are scheduled every week. Every year, De Texelstroom takes part in various events, such as the annual botterace, the Harlingen Terschellingrace (as accommodation for the rowers). Stay overnight Sleeping on the Texelstroom is a special experience. One- or multi-day special trips at your request are also possible. You can make group reservations for this. There are enough sleeping places on board. The comfort is sober but sufficient. Sailing experience is not required for the guests. Anyone who wants to lend a hand on board is welcome.
