“Fuikdag” relatively quiet
WILLEMSTAD – The New Year started yesterday with the traditional Fuikdag (Fuik Day). There were, according to the Coast Guard, about the same amount of boats as the first Sunday of last year, some 200 vessels in total.
According to the Coast Guard and rescue team CITRO, Fuikdag has been relatively quiet. There were two watercraft seized because the riders could show you a valid license.
Two people were arrested at the end of the event for insult, threat and impediment. And some people have become unwell.
