Good quiz. That must have been a lot of work. Could you explain how you deal with the issue of river estuaries? For example why is Hamburg included, though a long way up river, whilst London and Chatham are not? Some major ports seem to be excluded, though I guess there is a good reason, for example Rotterdam, Goteborg, Zeebrugge, Tilbury.

Explanations:

- Hamburg has two islands in the North Sea, making it coastal, cities on rivers are excluded,

- the other cities you named were excluded because they are too far away from the sea (e.g. Rotterdam is landlocked by The Hague); keep in mind city proper borders were taken into account.
