Sneekermeer: Sailing, boating and swimming
Sep 2014 • Friends
The Sneekermeer (instead of Snekermeer) region in the neigbourhood of the town Sneek in Frieland is a region of lakes and small villages (Offingawier, Oppenhuizen, Uitwellingerga Terkaple, Terherne) that you can visit by boat. It is easy to rent a (sailing)boat with or without a toilet and kitchen and to make a trip during a couple of days, visiting a couple of lakes and villages. You can moor your rental boat in a harbour in one of the villages or a pier in one of the lakes. there are a couple of nature reserves for birds next to the Sneekermeer.

The Snekermeer itself is a big lake that is used for sailing competitions. There is a special island in the Sneekermeer: the Starteiland that is used as a base for the sailing competitions.You can visit this island using a ferry.

Boating or sailing is very relaxing, especially on a warm summerday and not difficult to learn.It can be crowded on the water when the weather is very nice because a lot of people own a boat in Friesland and there are a lot of rental companies. We always borrow a boat from a familymember and enjoy ourselves.
