Friday, october 23rd, 2015: building the skimming arena, nightskimming with 70 international guests from the annual Blue Flag National Operators Meeting on Goeree-Overflakkee.
Saturday, october 24th, 2015: the competition for the European Championship Stoneskimming! In four categories: ‘Girls 0-12’ , ‘Boys 0-12’ , ‘ Women’ and ‘Men’. The participants try to skim their three stones as far as possible on the official 100m long track. Next to the quite serious skimming track, children can skim stones in a smaller track for points, people can practise and really good skimmers awe the public with their endless throws.
On the Menheerse Werf there’s an air castle, a shipyard where kids can built ships from waist material and a sail hoisting competition. Parents and spectators find a harbour-sided terrace with nice food and a good stocked bar. During the awards ceremony at the end of the day, the winners of the different categories are honored and the individual and team winners of the European Champion Stoneskimming 2015 take their grand prizes. Offcourse followed by a nice Postskim Party with music, booze and bites.
Registering for the European Championship Stoneskimming 2015 is on location or, preferably, through the online registration form on this site.
