The Baltic Sea, local beat of German sea-sailors, is equally popular amongst yacht owners and Yacht Charter crews: the Yacht Charter prices and mooring fees are moderate, the Yacht Charter cruise unproblematic, the diversity of the beat enormous and the navigation is relatively simple, since magnetic declination and tides are of no consequence.
But even at the height of summer, the regular check of the weather forecast is compulsory. Yacht Charter skippers should bring along sufficient experience: due to extensive shipping, transport routes with buoys and often instable weather conditions, this beat is not necessarily suited for beginners. The manoeuvring in the often narrow and crowded harbours wants for quite a bit of routine, but there have been built a lot of new big marinas perfectly equpped for Yacht Charter.
There are big Yacht Charter bases and a lot of Yacht Charter companies on the whole of the German coast, almost as many as harbours, among others in Eckernförde, Fehmarn, Flensburg, Heiligenhafen, Kappeln on the Schlei, Kiel, Lübeck, in Neustadt, in Marina Minde, in Greifswald, Rostock, Warnemünde, Wismar, Stralsund and of course on the island Rugia.
The coast of Schleswig-Holstein is a relatively well-protected Yacht Charter area with bays like the Schlei, the Flensburg Fjord and the Bays of Kiel and Lübeck. In the Eastern part of Germany, it’s mainly the sailing waters around the Island of Rugia that lure Yacht Charter crews with their scenic attractions. The German Baltic coast is an ideal starting point for Yacht Charter trips to Denmark, particularly the Danish Southsea, and to Sweden. More and more Yacht Charter sailors discover the coasts of Poland and the Baltic states as rewarding Yacht Charter destinations. Attractive major events like the Kiel or Travemünde Week or the Hansesail enrich the charter trip itinerary.
The best regatta sailors often hail from the South German lakes – they are just as familiar with revolving winds or calms, which call for highest concentration, as with the sudden onset of summer storms. Admittedly the lakes of the South and the lake-lands of the East are no typical Yacht Charter beats, most sailors are local and spend the weekends on their boats. All the same it can be exciting to explore something different than the local beat – say the Bavarian Sea during a trip on the Chiemsee, round Herreninsel with the royal palace of the Fairy tale king Ludwig II of Bavaria, Fraueninsel with fishing houses and Krautinsel with side trips to good Bavarian inns. Or a Yacht Charter cruise with a three-country-tour around Lake Constance – with the discovery of the German, Swiss and Austrian culture and cuisine on its shores, a side trip to the pile dwellings of Unteruhldingen and a visit to the island of Mainau. The lakeland areas of the German East are no less exciting for Yacht Charter. You can spend wonderful holidays there on sailing yachts or houseboats.
