Wind force 7 or greater? Then you won’t find a beachcomber (jutter) at home! That’s the best time to go the beach, to see what’s washed ashore.

Beachcombing runs in the blood of islanders. In earlier times, when people didn’t have much money, they would comb the beach from necessity. Wood on the beach was free building material and fuel. Nowadays, not much wood washes ashore anymore. However there’s still lots of other things to find! Museum Kaap Skil’s beachcombing shed is filled to bursting with beach finds. The beachcombers regularly tell tales about their forays on the beach.
