I am in the very early stages of planing for me and my family
, our plan was to start in the Netherlands
our way down the Rhine and then to the Med. I was hopping to draw on your wisdom in making this plan. I understand there is a decent current
on the Rhine and if I understand correctly it flows southern so starting in the Netherlands
would be the easiest is that correct? Anywhere else you would recommend?
I have read about all the locks in Holland
ect, how difficult are they really? We would be sailing a large 45 ft catamaran
any troubles you think we may have? Any advice
Lastly I know this may open a big can of worms but time frame, if we where taking our time, exploring along the way how much time would you plan on to go down the Rhine and then over to the Med and time to explore Italy
ect? Any help on seasons and when to be somewhere and when to be away?
Thanks in advance for your help and your willingness to share your experience.
