Guernsey & Normandy

Diese letzte Strecke unser Sommerflotillen über die Nordsee führen uns vom Bretagne zuerst weiter zum Osten nach die Bai von die Kanalinseln. Nach dem Besuch diese wunderschöne Inseln fahren wir die Kanalstrecke über und erkunden wir die Lage rundum Cowes auf der Insel Wight und die südostliche Küste Englands. Die “standard” Uberquerung vom Kanal ab Ramsgate nach die Belgische Kust wird uns wieder am festen Europäischen Land bringen. Langsam hochwerts langs kulinarischen genusse vom Belgien wird es keine Straffe langsam wieder näher an die Heimathafen zu kommen.

Cherbourg

This major French port has been bustling with activity for many centuries. It is a real seaport with many faces. We moor in one of the marinas close to the centre of the old town.

Guernsey

Die Kanalinseln sind seit 5000 v. Chr. von Menschen bewohnt. Wegen ihrer strategischen Lage wurden die Inseln von vielen Monarchen begehrt. Eine Geschichte, die fast überall zu finden ist, so auch auf Guernsey. Durch die besondere Lage herrscht hier ein ganz anderes Klima und man wähnt sich eher an der Cote d'Azur als an einer englischen Küste.

Jersey

St Malo

Granville

This port town forms the northernmost border of the bay of the famous Mont Saint Michel. It is situated on an impressive coastline, partly formed by cliffs and partly by long beaches. Its rich history is not to be missed,

Dielette

On the south coast of Normandy lies the small tidal port of Diëlette. From here, ferries leave for the various Channel Islands and we also make a stop here on our route northwards.

Bournemouth

Located in the county of Dorset, Bournemouth is one of the most south-westerly places we visit. We approach Poole harbour via the Brownsea Roads and find our way to the harbour.

Cowes

If there is one "Mecca" in Europe for competitive sailing, it is the famous Isle of Wight and the town of Cowes. Set in the beautiful waters of the Solent, it is the home port of the famous Cowes Week. A regatta with allure that attracts sailors from all over the world. But even with our yachts, it is a more than pleasant place to be.

Brighton

One of the most famous coastal towns on the east coast of England is Brighton. Especially the characteristic pier, but also the old city centre are visited and praised by many.

Eastbourne

This coastal town is also a regular stop for many who explore the English coast. A large marina, but also an authentic city centre show how long this has been. The beautiful pier with its golden dome is also worth a visit.

Dover

With an almost mythical status, Dover is probably one of the best known port towns on the east coast of England. But as well as being one of the largest ferry and transhipment ports, it is also well worth a visit on a pleasure yacht.

Oostende

The super cosy seaside resort Ostend is located on the West Flemish coast. Its first traces go back as far as the 8th century and in the times since then, the city and its surroundings have gone through a lot. It played an important role in the many wars that raged in this region during the Middle Ages, but never flourished as much as nearby port cities. Nowadays, it is a busy seaside resort with super-fun streets around the old Mercator dock.

Vlissingen

Vlissingen, harbour town on the Westerschelde, has the longest sea promenade in the Netherlands, here you can almost touch the passing sea ships. Under the Spanish, new defences were built around the town, the Keizersbolwerk was built between 1548 and 1552, which can still be seen today next to today's Koopmanshaven. Dutch naval hero Michiel de Ruyter keeps an eye here, he worked his way up to become commander-in-chief of the Dutch fleet and won many sea battles. With the beach and sea within easy reach, Vlissingen is a lovely place to take in the fresh sea air.

Yerseke

We land in the cradle of the Zealand oyster: Yerseke (pronounced "ierseke"). Even for those who are not necessarily culinary adepts, this place is absolutely worth a visit. The oyster museum and the explanation about the cultivation of this "salty gold" is fun for everyone. And if you are a fan of mussels, this port is of course an absolute "must". Salt and Zeeland really get their physical shape here!
