YOUR SAILING AREA
This sailing voyage is a great way to get a taste of exploring the Baltic sea at this time of the year. Low waves and moderate wind speeds are to be expected iso think plenty of fresh sea air, on-board comfort, delicious food from the excellent onboard kitchen mixed with genuine, traditional seamanship. Sail from Flensburg to discover the Danish Archipelago before finishing in the German port town of Eckernfjorde.
After a day of sailing, cross the invisible German-Danish maritime border and shelter in the harbour of Sønderborg, on the island of Als. A major attraction is the castle, with its gardens, within clear sight of our anchorage. Take a walk along the harbour with the historic merchant’s houses and a stroll through the Old Town with its typical Danish tranquillity.
The Baltic Coast
Known for its good sailing and trade routes, the winds across the Baltic remain fairly stable in the summer months providing great conditions for a full set of sails. The Baltic coast along Germany is by far the most sheltered and sailing here provides the perfect opportunity to experience the very best of this coastline. With a multitude of traditional German harbour towns, Eye of the Wind is not short of choices to stop overnight and gives guests a chance to explore ashore. Pass the busy shipping lanes of the Kiel Canal and perhaps stop overnight nearby to watch a plethora of ships and yachts pass through towards Scandinavia.
This coastline also neighbours with the Danish islands of Langeland, Lolland and Ærø which could also be possible stops for Eye of the Wind.
