De Groote Beer

De Groote Beer is the quintessential Lemsteraak and has been in the van Rootselaar family for almost 50 years. This Dutch racing barge is a multiple champion in her class and rocked that world with the first Sitka Spruce spars, mast, boom and gaff which proved to be stiffer and lighter than anything built up to that date. All spars where expertly built by Hans Boersma in Gorredijk.
