On 1st September 2018, the 'Raid Extreme' will be held on the Lauwersmeer lake in the north of the Netherlands. This lake is a former estuary with winds from the sea.
The Extreme Raid is a single day challenge for sailing, rowing and paddling boats (or a combination). The total distance sailed is around 30 miles. The format of the event is: arrive on Friday, sail your guts out on Saturday, leave on Sunday. Meals and breakfasts will be provided.
The 2016 event (DCA Journal 234) attracted 20 boats and was a great success.
This year, all camping and meals will be at the waterside.

I will participate with my 15' sailing pram 'Hatseflats' (http://home.casema.nl/khbakker).
As I will be the liaison for the DCA, let me know if you are interested and how we can help.
