Demonstration horse-driven lifeboat Ameland

Demonstration horse-driven lifeboat

31 August

During the demonstration of the horse-driven lifeboat on Ameland ten tough horses pull the lifeboat across the beach and through the breaking of the sea with massive force.

The demonstration of the horse-driven lifeboat is a happening that reminds of the old days, because when a  ship is in need, the modern Anna Margaretha sails from the harbour with great speed nowadays. 

The demonstration shows the long history of rescuing people from drowning and helping out ships in need near Ameland. The demonstration starts from the boat house near the  Maritime centre "Abraham Fock" at the Oranjeweg 18 in Hollum. The launchings takes place at the beach south/west of Hollum, end Tjettepad.
Naast de reddingbootovergang is een pad aangelegd dat leidt naar een uitkijkplatform. Vanaf hier kunnen rolstoelers en mensen die slecht ter been zijn de tewaterlating van de reddingboot bekijken.
