The wide open water provides big waves and wind to practice paddling on open water.
Early August we headed out from our urban area close to Amsterdam towards the wild area of water located in The Netherlands province of North Brabant.
A short drive from our house brought us to the Haarlemmermeer ringvaart.
That the wind and rain never seem to stop in The Netherlands (but it will and you will have perfect paddle weather.)
Becoming a team was not going to be as easy as we thought.
