English term or phrase: "Let's go in full sail"
Dear Translators,

Could you please help me translate the phrase "Let's go in full sail" into Dutch asap.

It is a slogan that expresses the sailors open the sails of the sailboat through the wind and go in full speed.

Thank you in advance

er met volle zeilen tegenaan gaan

As far as I now and could verify, there is no exactly matching expression.

There is one that bares a striking resemblance, "er met volle zeilen in vliegen", but it means something else, namely: to fall for something hook, line and sinker.

So I would suggest using "met volle zeilen", which is a naval term, combined with whatever you want to express.
