"Op 14 augustus 1979 strandde de Windspiel 4 / bij de lancering van de reddingboot verdronken 8 paarden"
"On August 14, 1979, the Windspiel 4 stranded / during the launch of the lifeboat 8 horses drowned"
Until the late 1980's the Ameland lifeboat was launched with the use of horses. On August 14, 1979, a launch went terribly wrong and 8 horses died. Their grave, pictured here in the dunes near Hollum, is a well known spot on the island.
