Oostende voor Anker

In 2018 Oostende voor Anker (Ostend at Anchor) will commemorate the second Ostend Raid (see below). In the past few years the Ostend festival has coincided with the Commemorative Cruise so it has not been possible to support this popular event. As the selected dates for 2018 do not clash with the Commemorative Cruise it is hoped that several Little Ships will be able to attend.

10. May 2018 (All day) - 13. May 2018 (All day)

Annual Veterans Cruise
