Physicists Cruise


We invite you to another Physics Cruise, this time on the beautiful schooner STS Kapitan Borchardt.
At the end of August 2023, we sail on the beautiful sailing ship STS Kapitan Borchardt, from Lübeck to Gdańsk.
We are solemnly arriving for the opening of the 48th Congress of Polish Physicists, which begins on September 2 in Gdańsk and will be organized by the Gdańsk Branch of the Polish Physical Society, Gdańsk University of Technology and the University of Gdańsk.

On the quay in Gdańsk and on board a sailing ship, we will prepare physical shows, during which we will explain to visitors the principles of sailing physics.

We cordially invite you to participate in this cruise. No sailing skills are required, what is important is health, a good mood and a willingness to cooperate and help others. Traditionally, we invite physicists (especially physics teachers), their families and friends, and physics enthusiasts.
