Cleaned up neatly!
Everyone likes clean water. Whether you swim in it, sail or look over the horizon. Last year, the Marrekrite recreation board, in collaboration with other organisations, launched the 'clean state tidy' campaign to draw attention to pollution in the water. Will you help keep the Frisian water clean? You can contribute to this by bringing your own garbage bag, or request the 'tidy is tidy' garbage bag. The birds and fish will thank you!

Throughout Friesland you will find charging stations to charge your (rented) electric sloop. While your sloop is charging, you certainly don't have to be bored. Time to explore ashore and discover the nicest pictures and places in Friesland!Find a charging station
Green fuel: Blue Diesel / HVO100
Are you still going on the water with a non-electric boat? Then consider filling up with HVO100, also known as 'blue diesel'. This low-emission fuel comes from biological raw materials, does not smell and makes your boat a lot quieter. That way you sail a lot grier! HVO100 is available on shore and on the water.Learn more about HVO100
