- We are exploring Belgium. We are at the Oostende sailing ship festival on the old freight docks of this once very busy seaport.
In the seaport town of Oostende on the last weekend in May, one of the worldâ€™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 Festivalâ€™s organizers.
