Sum and substance
From Belgium to France. Two tall ship festivals. It’s a short distance trip. Which means we are more flexible than usual and can go off the beaten path and see places we haven’t been to for a long time (or even never). Also it means we’d have more time for sail training: maneuvering, tacks and gybes, marine and river navigation basics.


Itinerary:
We meet in Ostend, the town of chocolate, beaches and ragged North Sea surfers. Festive and fascinating. Even more so because there will be a fairly sizable tall ship festival at that time. Once underway, we’ll plan the most interesting sailing route possible for the weather forecast at hand.
