I sailed a few years as deckhand (“maat”) on barges and clippers on the IJsselmeer and Waddenzee. That is one of the best jobs in the Netherlands. We sail with groups of German tourists. We explain to them how sailing works, they get to help us sail the ship, and they cook for us. And after a nice day of sailing we go drink a beer together. I loved that Aerosmith song ‘permanent vacation’, and if that is what you want, a permanent vacation, go work as deckhand on a sailingship. Sometimes it is hard work, but it is always fun.
