Cyprian Race 2024End August
Each year, the Cyprian Race is held on Terschelling with horses and ponies. The Cyprian was a boat that sank during a storm off the coast of Terschelling. If a message came in that a ship had wrecked, the beachcombers blood awoke and all the men on the island who had a horse went to the beach as quickly as possible to get what they could get their hands on. The Cyprian Race is held to commemorate those beachcomber races of the past.
