Experience an unforgettable sailing adventure on the Baltic Sea, which offers you two great sailing days, a hygge Danish harbour festival and the exciting “Haikutter” race 2024!

This 2-day trip starts on August 6th in Rostock city harbour. From there we will sail towards Nysted in Denmark, where a very cosy harbour festival is already waiting for you. In Nysted, at the southern tip of Lolland, we will be greeted with cannon shots in the harbour and have the opportunity to experience Danish culture and cuisine. We spend the night on board the historic herring lugger Belle Amie, where you can relax in cosy cabins.

The next morning, we will take part in the Haikutter Race 2024 as an escort ship, which will take us back to Rostock. Haikutter is the name given in Germany to a specific type of Danish fishing vessel, of which over 9,000 were built between around 1900 and 1940. On board the Belle Amie you have the best place to watch the spectacular race and cheer on the ‘sharks’ on their sea journey from Denmark to Rostock. The cruise ends in time for the start of the Hanse Sail on August 8th in Rostock. This maritime event is a highlight for sailing enthusiasts and offers the opportunity to marvel at impressive historic ships and enjoy the maritime flair of the city.

Accommodation is provided in cosy cabins on board the Belle Amie. Each sailor has their own bunk with a new mattress and a night light. All you need is a sheet, a pillowcase and a sleeping bag for a good night’s sleep.
