Accident during Fuikdag


WILLEMSTAD – The boating activity Fuikdag 2014, which is always on the first Sunday of the year, drew hundreds of boats to the Fuikbay. The Coast Guard and rescue organization Citro had to take action against a number of boats that are not allowed to be in the ocean. These were sent back to the dock.

There was panic when the engines of the blue ferry, Krioyo, went idle and the boat start drifting towards other boats. No one was injured but a number of boats were damaged.

According to authorities, the boating event is becoming too big and by next year the organizers will have to request a permit just like any other event or activity on the island.
