Spread out over the lake are five checkpoints. How you follow them is up to you. You can wait for the wind to turn, rain to blow over, or choose paddling legs over sailing legs first. All up to you. The total distance is about 50 kilometers. Yes. That is a lot.
Start and finish is at Jachthaven Lauwersmeer.The checkpoints at Zoutkamp, Dokkumer Nieuwe Zeilen, and Booze Wijf have snackbars so you can eat, rest and relax before taking on the next leg.
Do you know the famous "kroket"? How good is that? Eating a fat chunk of meat after you've paddled your lungs out? Hamburger maybe?
Each checkpoint has a box, with a special gift in it. Overall prizes are decided on the persons who collect all gifts from the checkpoint, and have the fastest time. There will be a prize for a secret combination of gifts. Your prize will always be doing something challenging and worthwhile?
