Statsraad Lehmkuhl:
Bremerhaven (DE) - IJmuiden (NL)

16 August - 19 August 2015

This cruise will take us from the sail festival in Bremerhaven, Germany, past the picturesque Friesian coast to the charming little town of IJmuiden where a lot of vessels will come together for preparing for Sail Amsterdam 2015. Open to all ages, minimum age 12 years. Age 12-15 accompanied by an adult/parent. On board you will sleep in a hammock.

Ports

Bremerhaven is one of the most important German ports, playing a crucial role in Germany’s trade. The town was founded in 1827, but settlements in the vicinity were settled as early as the 12th century. The main attractions for tourists are found at the Havenwelten and include the German Emigration Center and the German Maritime Museum, featuring the Hansekogge, a vintage cog dating from 1380, excavated in Bremen in 1962, and the historical harbour with a number of museum ships.

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.
