Morgenster:
Rostock (DE) - IJmuiden (NL)

09 August - 15 August 2015

Sail the Morgenster to her home country. Learn how to sail the ship and take the weel, together with your watch group. Climb the mast and see the sun rise over the horizon. Depending on the wind you will sail the first part via the Kieler Canal or via sea. After you sail the North Sea, maybe you can see the German & Dutch Wadden Islands on port side. This promises to be a fun trip where you will learn loads about ocean sailing, but also have time to relax and have fun together. When you arrive in IJmuiden you will join the festival PreSail IJmond, with a lot of activities and vessels that will come together for Sail Amsterdam. Join in with your new friends! This journey is open to Windseekers of all ages, minimum age 15-25 years.

Ports

Rostock is a large city on the Warnow River, and home to one of the oldest universities in the world. One of the most picturesque places in Rostock is the Neuer Markt (New Market Square), with the Town Hall - that was originally built in the 13th century in Brick Gothic style. The square also preserved six original, carefully restored gable houses from the 15th and 16th centuries. There are a lot more historical and cultural sights to see in this city. So go ahead, and explore!

IJmuiden, on the west coast of the Netherlands, is the water gateway to Amsterdam. Cruise ships, cargo vessels and pleasure yachts pass through its busy locks every day, while the IJmuiden marina is an excellent spot to shelter for the North Sea storms. IJmuiden offers a wide, sandy beach that is popular with windsurfers and kitesurfers. Behind the dunes you’ll find a small nature reserve, perfect for a hike or a run. IJmuiden’s restaurants serve fresh fish, straight from the local market.

    "There were dolphins!”, my watch mate told me when I emerged from my cabin. “Hundreds of them! Jumping and blowing! You missed them!” I thought he was pulling my leg, but apparently he wasn’t. When seasickness claims you, you miss …
