A demonstration during ‘Reuzedei’ 2012, in preparation to the 4th edition of the Dutch Solar Challenge, grew out to the ‘NK solar boat race’.
The Eneco solar boat race gets organized at the same time the ‘Reuzedei’ in Akkrum is organized. The NK solar boat race was actually conceived by a couple of teams during ‘Boot Holland’ 2013. The teams wanted to measure their forces against each other in a year that there were no big races planned. 'Reuzedei' is now the event in the North-netherlands in the field of sustainable living, working and living.
In 2016 the Young Solar Challenge first participated in Akkrum. Participants participated to the endurance and sprint on the 7th of May.

12:00 uur Rondje Akkrum (endurance)
15:45 uur Sprint
