THE weekend of the year at Lagakari: introweekend!!!
A whole weekend full of sailing in Friesland and of course partying until early in the morning. However, this is not the only beauty about this weekend. During the introweekend, we won’t just sail on keelboats (valk), but also on a “skûtsje”! The skûtsje caries the name “de Weduwe”, a beautiful flat bottom that has been in operation for more than 100 years.
When embarking, she is naturally greeted in an appropriate manner. This “strontschuit” also takes part in competitions, which from time to time also yields a nice first place, including in the Strontrace.
Two super nice skippers are at the helm: Fred and Ettie. They involve us completely in skûtsjesilen: stabbing the swords, raising the gigantic sails, … And the feeling you get when you’re staring into the sails while relaxing on the deck, cannot be described with words. It is just pure enjoyment!!!
If you want to go skutsjesilen more often (than once a year), gather your family or friends together and go sailing on “de Weduwe” for a day or weekend!! THE ultimate family day!!!
