"Oostende at Anchor" is one of the world’s largest gatherings of "tall ships" and other historic sailing vessels. International traveling guide Patricia Lawrence wanders the Belgian port city, and cosmopolitan, picturesque seaside resort, with listeners through the sights and sounds - including costumed participants, historic battleship reenactments and marching bands - of this great festival held annually on the last weekend in May. She talks with one of the organizers and crew aboard a few of the diverse and fascinating ships on the docks to create another in her series of entertaining Travel Radio International "audiojourneys".
In the seaport town of Oostende on the last weekend in May, one of the world's largest sailing-ship festivals is held. There are many ships to explore and much activity when we arrive on the docks of Oostende; announcers, marching bands, and battle-ship reenactments fill our senses. The first person we meet is a musketeer and one of the Festival's organizers.
