The proportion of owners and charter crews sailing east on the Baltic Sea is still relatively small. Most of them head north to Denmark, Sweden or Norway. With Poland and the Baltic States east of Rügen lies an attractive area. For some years now, the South Coast Baltic association has been promoting this, an EU-supported project that promotes the region from Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania to Poland to Lithuania at trade fairs and, most recently, in the form of a summer flotilla that takes one week from Gdansk to Kaliningrad.
The free area guide
The association has now published a free district guide for the 2018 season, which introduces the ports along the entire length of the coast and can be obtained in both printed and electronic form (link to download). In the last few years there has been massive investment in infrastructure, especially in Poland, but also in the Baltic States, often with generous EU support. Many ports are technically up to date and have modern jetties, utilities and sanitary facilities.
The 180-page "Harbor Guide for the Southern Baltic Sea" presents you with plans, information and brief characteristics. The plans and maps in particular do not always correspond to the level of professional guides, for example depth information and information are sometimes missing, but you definitely get a good first impression.
