      The fickle winds of the Baltic Sea forced the ship to take shelter to preserve the vessel and its crew.

      Founded in the 16th century, the town prospered thanks to its busy port and thriving maritime trade. Over the centuries, Kärdla has witnessed many historic events, including the Russian occupation and the period of industrialization in the 19th century. Today, the town harmoniously blends its historical heritage with a modern way of life.

      For Energy Observer and its crew, the stopover in Kärdla was an opportunity to discover the beauty of these coasts.
