A magnificent experience in Friesland! The SKS Skutjezeilen, a magnificent event full of history. SKS Friesland is the best-known, followed by the IFKS Friesland.
This special event is held on the Frisian lakes and IJsselmeer every summer, at the end of July/start of August. A fantastic spectacle you shouldn’t miss out on!
Lemmer is lucky in that participants spend two days of sailing on IJsselmeer. All the more reason to come and enjoy Skutjezeilen Lemmer around that time.
Skutjezeilen is a sailing event with so-called skutjes (shallow-draught boats) on the Frisian lakes and IJsselmeer in Friesland. A total of 14 skutjes take part, each with its own skipper and crew. These 14 skutjes fight for first place by negotiating any weather conditions thrown at them. Lemmer too has its own skutjes.
Want to see Skutjezeilen live? You have various options. Various round-trip boats sail from Lemmer to IJsselmeer, enabling you to see the race from up close. You can also hire a jolly boat at the hotel and make your own way to the race.
"Vriendelijk personeel, kamer zeer netjes, goede service en schoonmaak ook perfect!"
