Geocache Description:


Tankerbucht
In den Jahren 1975 bis 1979 war an diesem Ort der größte Schiffsparkplatz Europas. Bis zu 14 Supertanker lagen dort während der Ölkrise 5 km vor der Küste auf Reede. Ein Tanker – die Wilhelmine Essberger – wurde direkt nach dem Stapellauf in Kiel in die Bucht verbracht.
Zu damaliger Zeit bestand die Abwechslung der Matrosen darin, einen Landgang zu einem nahe gelegenen Versorgungsstützpunkt zu unternehmen. Dort wurde mit Proviant versorgt, Post ausgetauscht, Wäsche gewaschen und Seemannsgarn gesponnen. Die Barkassen pendelten zwischen den Schiffen und dem Bootsanleger am Ort hin und her, von dem Steg sind heute noch Teile vorhanden.

In the time period from 1975 to 1979 this was the biggest parking area for oil-tanker in europe. Up to 14 very large crude carrier were during the oilcrisis 5km (3nm) offshore. The tanker named Wilhelmine Essberger has been sent at this place from Kiel direct after the finish of building. The seamen's variation was the visit of the supply station nearby. There were traded goods, exchanged posts, washed clothes and told seamen-stories. The barges shuttled between the ships and small bridge, rests of it can bee seen, too.
