Oosterschelde:
Kiel (DE) - Scheveningen (NL)

24 June - 28 June 2018

To the finish of the Volvo Ocean Race! Via the Kiel Fjord we go to the locks of Holtenau and enter the ‘Nord-Ostsee Kanal’. On the Elbe we will set the sail and hope for a high-pressure area with an easterly wind, so we can sail the whole voyage. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

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.

Scheveningen is a popular sea resort in the Netherlands, a stone’s throw away from the seat of government in The Hague. It has a busy marina and a lively (somewhat kitschy) promenade – great for an afternoon of sightseeing. You’ll also find plenty to do nearby. Go for a walk in the dune landscape or take a tour around the Palace of Peace. Visit Madurodam to see the Netherlands rebuilt in miniature, check out the city centre of The Hague, or explore the beach and perhaps even go kitesurfing.
