In Houtskär there are a lot of old beautiful sailing boats. Most of them are old boats, which people used in olden times for work and journeys, but some are built more recently. In summer sailing competitions with old sailing boats are arranged in Houtskär or nearby almost every weekend. One of the competitions takes place during the Houtskär week.
It’s a great experience to see the beautiful boats sailing on the sea. If you are in Houtskär when a competition is arranged, you should go and watch it!
