Explore the Baltic Sea from Rostock to Stralsund on board a classic tall ship.
Rostock is the starting point of our journey, which will take us to Kiel via Lubeck. Days at sea will alternate with nights at the sheltered mooring spot or in the harbour. Enjoy relaxing days on board and doing some ‘harbour hopping’ – no previous knowledge or experience is required for sailing on our windjammer.
Our crew will welcome you on board in the port city of Rostock at 7pm where there will be dinner together in the comfortable lounge, where you will quickly feel at home on the Eye of the Wind’s deck and soon get to know your fellow sailors. Make the most of your time before going on board by taking a tour through the historic city center of Rostock. There you will find parts of the city wall with its fortification towers, as well as the 13th-century town hall and monastery churches with hidden gardens. The whole appearance of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania’s largest city is dominated by Gothic brick buildings from the Hanseatic era. You can also take an evening stroll past the historic storehouses on the banks of the Warnow river and through the picturesque town and the Museum Harbour. Exactly 100 years ago, Rostock was the home port of the Eye of the Wind – at the time she was called ‘Friedrich’.
After receiving safety instructions and an introduction to sailing from the ship’s crew, you can soon join in the sailing yourself – always on a voluntary basis, of course. Climbing the rigging, steering the course and pulling the ropes will make this trip an unforgettable holiday experience of a special kind. All sailing manoeuvers are performed manually by the experienced crew, so setting and trimming the sails becomes a fascinating performance from long gone seafaring times, which you can also enjoy comfortably from the deck.

Eye of the Wind
Guest berths: 16 Rig: Brig
With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.
This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.
Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.
Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 16 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
