In Ostend you come on board and meet the crew and fellow guests. We do some instruction and enjoy a nice meal. In the evening we can have a walk through Ostend.
Next morning we set sail on the North Sea with a good timing with the flow of river Schelde. This river meanders along banks and islands and is quite tricky for the very huge vessels that we meet here. After quite some wooded bends the Mediaeval skyline of this delicious city pops up.
We moor alongside the Steen, the castle on the quay, close to the maritime museum. Next day we stay in Antwerp for rewarding walks and one of the very interesting musea, like Museum Aan de Stroom, Mayer van de Bergh or the Rubens House.
On Friday morning we sail further up the narrowing river to the Wintam locks to enter the Willebroek Canal. We pass impressive high lifting bridges and locks with quite a rise before we moor at walking distance of Brussels city center. On Saturday morning after breakfast we say good bye.
