Autumn trip on board the Eendracht. Board the Ship in Belgian Oostende for a week out on the sea at the end of the season. You can join on your own, or bring a friend with you. Depending on the weather conditions you will visit other ports before disembarking in Dutch Rotterdam. During this week you will get to know what the life on sea is like, practice your sailing skills and make great friends. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years. Windseekers between 12-15 years welcome if accompanied by an adult.

Ports

Oostende is a seaport and tourist destination on the Belgian coast. The original belle époque architecture was largely destroyed by two world wars (and the advent of mass tourism), but the city still has plenty of worthwhile sights to see, such as the Mu.ZEE, the Petrus and Paulus church, and the fort Napolean. Visit one of the museums, check out the lively cultural agenda, and step in a Belgian tavern for a ‘pinteke’. And don’t forget the beach, which can be crowded in the summer!

Rotterdam is the largest port of Europe, and a modern, bustling town. Much of the historic city centre was destroyed during World War II, but extensive rebuilding resulted in a modern, multicultural city with many architectural highlights. Rotterdam has excellent cultural facilities and a diverse nightlife; during the summer the city hosts a large number of events. Discover the city by bicycle and go for a coffee in Hotel New York, the former headquarters of the Holland America Line.
