Ostend at Anchoris a big maritime event which each year attracts hundreds of sailors of classic sailing vessels; the event also offers entertainment and performances around the city and along the docs.
It is a must see event for those who are interested in sailing and maritime history, more than 130 ships will be moored at Ostend: from three- masters to inland barges and steamboats to the smallest clincker-built longboats.
There will be a chance to learn more about old maritime crafts, to try some freshly baked or smoked fish, enjoy the music (more than 100 performances on one of the two stages) - metal, blues,
reggae, folk and shanty and street performances, or to take a ride on a boat.
There is also going to be present a Wetwheels, the organisers made sure that the whole festival is accessible to everyone!
Wetwheels builds the confidence of the disabled participants by providing the opportunity to access the sea in a fun, safe, stimulating and rewarding way using specially modified, fully accessible powerboats.
