This section describes our cruises in the Netherlands in 2006 which was the year we did the main research for our book. It was a hectic season involving cars, bikes and boats and visiting as many harbours as we could. In this log we mainly concentrate on our own cruising, whilst in the book we provide more detailed information on cruising in the Netherlands from our original research.
