Travel plans:

 

Train leaves Hauptbahnhof 12:51, change at Geltendorf and get in to Utting (Ammersee) at 13:40. (Trains can be late, missing connections ! )

Group ticket can be organised if enough people get together.

 

OR:

 

Travel by own transport. Meet up at the pier for Ernst segelschule at 13:45

 

Maybe we meet up before the time to sail for a picnic lunch and give you the chance to ask more questions.

 

Boat details

 

No specialist equipment is needed. Suncream, soft soled trainers so you don't slip, a light waterproof jacket in case it rains and perhaps a jumper in case the weather looks changeable or cloudy. We can take bags onto the boat, so changing clothes or carrying drinks should not be a problem.

 

Costs are for just the boat hire @ € 15 per hour split between us. They can take up to 8 people, kids are welcome.

 

I have one boat now "permanently" reserved, but need a commitment by Thursday from skippers to book more.

 

Let me know if you want me to pm you my handy number in case of emergencies ! Works only from Friday evening.

for people travelling by train to Utting, as we found out much to our dismay last week, take the S-Bahn from HBF to geltendorf little earlier (Dont wait for the Regional bahn at 12:51) so that you dont miss your connection in Utting.

 

I would not be able to make it this weekend though :) hope you guys have a lot of fun, as we had last weekend.

I'd love to go (and bring drinks to pour) but little mini-bug has a soccer tournament on Sunday. I'm hoping for next week (possibly with only one mini-bug, depending on soccer games and such)

Already have the 13th pencilled in, though.

I really enjoyed it last week. Can I swim next to the boat if the wind is very light and it's moving too slowly?

If you are comfortable with the idea, this week it looks as though we have space enough. We can always stop if it gets too much.

We are four grownups and an 18year old and a six-year old. We don'T have anyone qualified as a skipper either. Are there paddleboats there as well?

Thanks for the quick responses, yotti! Good information for the future, but I think we'll save this for sometime when the kiddies aren't along.
