The Kamper Kogge is a reconstruction of a cog from the 14th century. This ship was built following the discovery of a wreck in the Flevopolders and is 22 meters long.
The Cog was the most important link in the booming trade in Northern Europe. These ships were 15 to 30 meters long and could carry relatively large cargoes over the sea over long distances. Hundreds of Cogs sailed the North and the Baltic Sea in the late Middle Ages. Ommelandvaarders, were the captains, who from the low countries made the dangerous journey under primitive conditions around Jutland to the Baltic countries.
This reconstruction was made possible by financial support from the province of Overijssel, the municipality of Kampen and by a learning and work project for young people, within the framework of the European Social Fund. She is being sailed by volunteers.
