Lined up like pearls on a string are seven islands with long sandy beaches and quaint marinas off the East Frisian North Sea coast: Borkum, Juist, Norderney, Baltrum, Langeoog, Spiekeroog and Wangerooge. Visiting them all in just one sailing week is quite ambitious. But as described in the one-way trip in the great Ostfriesland report, at least some of the most beautiful places in this area can be explored at leisure.
Magical islands and challenging sailing
The navigation in the tidal area poses one or the other challenge to crews. With a little preparation and also in the right weather window, however, it quickly becomes clear: Tidal navigation is not only demanding, but also fun - for example when the tidal current pushes the boat at three knots from astern towards the destination in a rush.
