(Polish title: Zapomniane jeziora, cz. 2. Zespoly jezior wojewodztwa pomorskiego dostepne dla lekkich plaskodennych jachtow i lodzi w turystyce weekendowej). This article presents selected groups of lakes in Pomorskie Prowince accessible for light flat-bottomed yachts used in short-lasting or weekend tourism. The aim of this work is to present the unknown lakes to water tourists to encourage them to sail there in rowing boats, light flat-bottom sailing boats or light flat-bottom motor yachts. The length of sailing routes on these lakes allows 1-3 day-sailing and enjoying the unspoilt scenery, clean water and using the facilities designed for tourists (rest centers offering water equipment, shops, places for launching boats and bivouacking). The information presented here has been gathered during the research – the actual cruise in a rowing boat type BL-2 along the described routes. It includes analysis of the routes, dimensions of the major water obstacles (i.e. shallows, clearance of bridges) The aim of this work is also presentation of a rowing boat as a universal means of transport on water suitable for everyone. A rowing boat, due to its light weight, dimensions and easiness in use enables to swim on the lakes usually described as accessible exclusively for kayaks. A rowing boat, contrary to kayaks, is safe (stable, resistant to waves, safe for children and the elders ), more comfortable and offers more loading possibilities. The following article is the second part of 'Forgotten Lakes', published in Colloquium - A yearly publication II (2010 r.)
