You will embark in Scheveningen. Some of the guests will already be on board as they have joined us for the combination trip from Kiel to Brest. As soon as everyone is on board, we will set sail. The old and the new guests will get to know each other soon. At sea we start the watch system. The watches are divided, and everyone is invited to help navigate, steer, trim the sails, do ropework or whatever there is to do on board. But there is also enough time to read a book or stare at the horizon and the waves. The OOSTERSCHELDE offers the opportunity to experience this sailing voyage just the way you like. There is enough time for stops along the way. In the French harbour of Fécamp there is a small maritime festival. We want to make a stop here. There will be many other ships in port and there is lots to do. If the voyage goes fast, we will make another stop on the northside of Brittany. For instance, in L'Aber Wrac'h. Brittany has a long and extraordinary coastline, with beautiful hiking route that are suitable for all levels of fitness. A few years back we were able to make a stop on d'Ouessant. This island marks the entrance of the English Channel. If the sea is calm, we might be able to sail via ‘Canal du Four’ to the bay of Brest. The ‘Canal du Four’ is a small strait along the Brittany coast, that is infamous for the strong current and famous lighthouses. On the southside of the bay there is a small fishermen’s village called Camaret-sur-Mer and it would be perfect for the last days. There is a beautiful walking route along the coast. On the last night we will arrive in Brest and the next day after breakfast it is time to say goodbye.
This description is meant to give you an impression of how a voyage could look like. Depending on wind and weather conditions the travel plan could be altered, however we always try to sail as much as possible. It is not mandatory, but we invite everyone to participate in the watches and to help sail, steer and navigate the ship.
