WILLEMSTAD – Like every year, in 2019, Fuikdag is organized on the first Sunday of the year. According to police, fire brigade and Coast Guard, the rules have been tightened again this year, in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice.
It has been decided not to issue a permit for the sale of alcohol during Fuikdag. Also, hard music on a raft or stage is not allowed and all boats participating in the event must have enough safety vests on board in addition to the necessary documents.
In addition, the fire brigade will carry out inspections when lighting fire on board a boat for a barbecue, for example. Furthermore, it is no longer allowed to transport people to and from the location of the event.
