Dear Mr. van Marle:
I am enclosing $4 as subscription to Alcyone Circle. Hope to get further particulars on August meeting. Perhaps can fly over and join you.
Would like to meet other Alcyone owners. As you can see I am agent for Wil in US.
Had a short cruise with Carapace this spring over to Abaca Bahamas. Delightful weather except for one 70K NEaster,
for which we were happily at a sheltered anchorage.
Carapace has been modified with pulpit, center board removed and small in keel welded on. She now sails 100% better to windward, with minimum weather helm.
Self steering vane can now handle her comfortably.
Slide enclosed for your next winter meeting.
