CAPTAINS HANDBOOK 2022

Welcome

Dear sailors, captains and skippers,

we would like to welcome you, your ship and your crew to the City of Rostock and to the maritime festival of the 31st Hanse Sail Rostock. 

The Hanse Sail Rostock is the largest maritime event of the coastland Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and our city presents itself proudly as a vibrant Baltic port and cultural and economic centre of Germany´s Northeast. With this peaceful maritime event, the Hanseatic city wishes to contribute to the cohesion of the peoples on the Balticshores and to the preservation of traditional ships as part of the European cultural heritage. 

Numerous traditional sailors and historic vessels bring their character to the Hanse Sail ambiance with fragrances of old canvas and tar. Some of these lovingly cared for and restored traditional sailing ships are more than 100 years old. Each year during the four Hanse Sail days, numerous visitors fulfill their dream of sailing. Day cruises and regattas in the waters of Warnemünde are memorable experiences.

It‘s nice that you are here. Let‘s celebrate together.
