In the period 12 – 13.07.2017, as a part of the project South Coast Baltic, a survey was conducted among sailors in selected yacht ports in Germany, Poland, Denmark and Lithuania. The aim of the study was to learn about the preferences of sailors as regards selecting sailing routes and the activities undertaken in the visited towns.
The study in Germany was conducted with participation of nine students from the Faculty of Economics and Engineering of Transport, major of Logistics and Transport (including the new specialisation of Yacht Port Operation) as well as employees of the Faculty: Aleksandra Łapko, PhD. Eng. and Ewa Hącia, PhD. Eng. The team examined sailors in over 20 ports in the area of Western Pomerania (e.g. Stralsund, Wolgast, Sassnitz, Uckermunde).
The Faculty of Economics and Engineering of Transport is a partner of the project South Coast Baltic – Establishing durable cross-border boating destination management on the basis of the MARRIAGE cooperation network, financed within the Interreg South Baltic Programme 2014-2020. The tasks of the faculty within the project are performed under the supervision of Stanisław Iwan, PhD., Professor of MUS.
