are the rules of a very special contest which will be held on
Sunday, November 19, 2017
. It is organised
this year for the 33th time.
This contest is a very famous one in
, and organised by the Frisian section A-14 of the
contest is called: “Frisian 11-cities contest”.
( Frŷslan) is one of the 12 provinces and is
situated in the northern part of
. Firstly famous for its
skating marathon along its 11 cities. The
marathon is organised when the canals and rivers in the province are
totally frozen over. As you can imagine that this event will only take
place so every now and then. This most world-famous 200 tour was held for
the first time in
the 12th edition, the temperature dropped to an extremely low
level of minus 29 degrees. It was 22 years before the next marathon was
held in 1985. The last one was
organised in 1997. Not even the Frisian inhabitants were excited....... no,
the entire country was outraged.
In summertime each year, another famous Frisian event takes place. The
well-known sailing events, the “Skûtjes-sailing” are organised. Skûtjes
are very old merchant-ships, from the late 19th and early 20th
century and they sail in competition
on several lakes in the province. This event has been held for decades.
Thousands of people from all over
and abroad watch these
events on television and the internet.
