Kapitan Borchardt:
Oostende (BE) - Kiel (DE)

30 May - 06 June 2016

Sail along on this beautiful classic Polish sailing ship at the North Sea to the Eastsea and cross the Kielercanal to Kiel. When the wind is well and the direction okay the ship will have time for some stop(s) or anghoring. Each day will be different. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Oostende is a seaport and tourism 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 check out a Belgian tavern for a ‘pinteke’. And don’t forget the beach, which can be crowded in the summer!

Kiel is a German port town on the Baltic coast, widely known for its yearly ‘Kiel week’ – the biggest yearly regatta in the world! Many thousands of boats and ships of all kinds and eras take part in the parade. Kiel Week is also a festival, Volksfest and fair as well as a maritime event. But Kiel offers more: a slew of museums (zoological, geological, historical, fine art, industrial, and military museums), a city centre with relaxed atmosphere, and the water and shores of the Kieler Fjord.
