We will welcome you in the Fish auction, an authentic location where fish was traded around 100 years ago. You will enter a real historical botter on which you will sail on the former Zuiderzee. During the trip, we will tell you stories of the past and besides this we will sail as people used to in the past. You can sail together with us and assist but you can also enjoy the trip. To sail with a botter is a real experience.
For the botter foundation and historical fish auction it is a challenge to show the sailing historical heritage and to connect the historical past to the present. It is a beautiful opportunity to sail on the former Zuiderzee, which we already do for more than 25 years. As chairman of the Botter foundation and the fish auction I can tell you that we are a great group of enthusiastic volunteers, who put in a lot of effort to keep the fishing past of Harderwijk alive. This is also what we want to propagate and if possible let other people experience this.
