The CosmoQueen Regatta is an annual national event. This year the Regatta has been moved to September due to the corona measures. The specific date will follow soon. In any case, the day starts around 11 am. After a reception at the KNZ & RV in Muiden, the competition courses are discussed. After sailing the first Olympic track, there will be lunch on board the ships. After this, everyone will get ready to sail another Olympic track. Afterwards, a well-deserved drink will be served on board, with a beautiful view of the Muiderslot. The winner will then be awarded the cup. The annual CosmoQueen Award will also be presented to a well-known Dutch woman who is structurally committed to a good cause. The day ends with a walking dinner and a drink on the dance floor.

You can attend this fantastic event by renting one of the Lemsteraken (max 10 people). It is also possible to buy a ticket for a single seat. Have you become enthusiastic? For more information, please contact: info@cosmoqueen.nl.

Lemsteraak

The Lemsteraken class is the most pretentious of all flat-bottomed boats. With her beautiful lines and excellent sailing characteristics, she is a feast for the eyes and a pleasure to sail. The first Lemsteraak was built in 1876 by Shipyard De Boer from Lemmer. Originally the barge was intended as a fishing vessel on the Waddenzee and the Zuiderzee. The fast barge was used for transport and storage of (live) fish. The well-to-do bourgeoisie soon discovered that the Lemsteraak was perfectly suited as a pleasure yacht. The fish bun disappeared and in its place was a cabin placed behind the mast, often with ornamental carvings and stained-glass windows. As a yacht the barge was sailed with three paid forces. During this time, at competitions, the crew can reach up to 10 men to maneuver quickly and change sails.
