    Maybe not the one to Michiel de Ruyterhaven.
    The De Ruyter is always open, gates there "just in case"

    The De Ruyterhaven is tidal. It has a sill which, especially if you draw 2m, you’d better take into account.
    The gates are there for storm surges

    Hej,
    Thank you all for your advice and sidebars to the crossing part.
    I seem to remember getting back into a box mooring after chartering a yacht in Sweden without too much trouble (I think). It was only about 20 feet long (the boat) and I then made my wife the world's hottest curry by mistake (inedible) - happy days.
    We now have to consider what needs prepping over the winter if we are to take our little pirates to the continent. I take it yachts are still welcome post Brexit, or is that one of the many unknown unknowns still to be agreed?
    Andy, thanks for your help and I'll be in touch about your plans and mine.

    beautiful day, I'm just popping down to the boat...

    Stay-at-home tourism is quite an industry in the Netherlands, so one thing you could do in the winter is mug up on sights to see when you are over there. They may be too young for a museum a day, but there are loads of interesting sights and things to do.
    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere

    How easy is it to get from the ferry to Middleburg?

    We are planning this next year and my partner will be coming over on the ferry with a 14 month-old. Suffice to say, if there's more than a couple of changes it might prove difficult for her and I'll need to plan to go to meet her from the ferry.

    The Hook is a fair distance by train to Middelburg
    try Flixbus or GoEuro for other options

    the Bus from London might be the best & cheapest option

    There are direct trains R to M, not all though.

    The ferry ticket from Harwich to Hook includes the train the Rotterdam Centraal.

    For all things public transport go to 9292.nl
    Not all who wander are lost
