Through the Netherlands via the Standing Mast Routes

Through the Netherlands via the Standing Mast Routes

This is a 76-page A4 guide, first published in 2019 and now updated for 2024, providing detailed navigational information on 14 different routes by which yachts can transit the Netherlands. Written by CA members Andy Mulholland and James Littlewood and edited by Gordon Knight, the guide covers nearly 1,000kms of waterways from Vlissingen near the Belgian border to Delfzijl close to the border with Germany. Available in A4 size and printed in full colour throughout, the guide includes maps, distance tables, lock and bridge opening hours and colour photos to help skippers plan alternative routes.

The guide is regularly updated (usually annually) using reports submitted by members of the CA's European Inland Waterways Section (EIWS) and incorporates numerous hyperlinks to a wealth of additional information. CA members (who can download the digital version for free - you'll need to be logged in to see the free download link in Buying Options below ) also benefit from further hyperlinks to the CA's award-winning app CAptain's Mate to obtain the most up to date information on mooring locations and navigational restrictions as it is posted.

To obtain full benefit from these hyperlinks, all the EIWS guides can be purchased in digital versions as downloadable PDFs from the CA's digital store Shopify. Non-members can thus benefit from numerous hyperlinks in green to additional information on the internet, while CA members can also use hyperlinks in blue to the latest updates on CAptain's Mate.

For those who prefer a hard copy, all the guides can also be purchased in full colour A4 printed format from the print-on-demand publishers Lulu.

Also included in the guide is a 25% discount offer on first year's membership to purchasers applying online for CA membership during the year.

For information on the additional benefits (in addition to free PDF downloads of all the guides) available to members of European Inland Waterways Section (EIWS), please see EIWS web page.
