Women’s Sailing is designed for all women who would like to be at the helm themselves. In a relaxed atmosphere, we train all manoeuvres that sometimes cause problems, even for experienced sailors:
Port manoeuvres – what to watch out for – how to behave – how to moor and berth safely?
Weather – how to prepare properly – how to sail safely, even in stronger winds? And, of course, the basics of good seamanship.

The aim of women’s sailing is to convey greater sovereignty, confidence and composure – in a relaxed atmosphere characterised by team spirit. Women’s Sailing is suitable for both charter sailors and women who sail their own yacht with their partner and would like to take an active part in steering their yacht.

Even if you have no sailing experience, you can take part in this sailing trip.

Day 1: Check-in – safety briefing – introduction to the sailing yacht
10.30 am: we meet at the sailing yacht – check in and allocation of berths
11.00 a.m.: Safety briefing – preparing for sailing – casting off – setting sail.
We set course north and sail to Hiddensee – between Hiddensee and Rügen, we have a very narrow channel – now our sailing training begins. In the afternoon we dock in a harbour on Hiddensee, you will have plenty of time in the afternoon to explore the island – free evening activities.

Day 2: Line work and manoeuvre training on the Baltic Sea
09:00 Breakfast; After breakfast, we concentrate on our lines on board. Line work: throwing, knotting and belaying. Are all lines cleared again? Then it’s time to cast off and head out into the Baltic Sea! We sail past the ‘söte Länneken’ (Low German for ‘sweet little country’; that’s how the island of Hiddensee is called) and Cape Arkona. We call at the ports of Glowe, Lohme or Sassnitz. We practise various manoeuvres on the Baltic Sea, which of course depend on the prevailing weather conditions.

Day 3: Practice, practice, practice
After breakfast, we continue. Of course, we sail past the famous chalk cliffs, the Königstuhl, around the south-eastern part of the island of Rügen, past the Baltic Sea resorts of Binz, Sellin, Baabe, Göhren and Thiessow. We call at the ports of Seedorf, Gager or Lauterbach.

Day 4: Relax, apply what we have learnt.
After breakfast, we sail back to Stralsund via the Greifswalder Bodden and the southern Strelasund, so that we can catch the bridge opening of the Ziegelgraben Bridge at 15:20 and be back at our berth around 15:45.

Away from the usual ferry routes, we show you the most beautiful sides of Germany’s largest and most popular holiday island of Rügen.

By the end of the sailing trip around Rügen, we have covered a total of about 110 nautical miles, which the skipper can of course confirm to you.
