No wintermeeting 2017
For me and Joost it really is a bridge to far organizing a cozy Winter meeting somewhere in March 2017. Joost recently lost his brother Henk and I’m very busy with building up Caecilia, hopely to sail with her in 2017. We hope all of you will understand that. But the good news is our Summermeeting!

Special Summermeeting 2017
Mr. Onno Hoekstra, harbourmaster at Hindeloopen, has decided to stop next year at the age of 73. So after 20 years, 2017 will be his last season.
For so many years he did a great job reserving the most beautiful place in his cosy harbour for our ships on Rally-tour. And last but not least as our graphical designer he made such a eyecatcher of the standardwork ‘Alcyone Odyssee’.
We know it always is a pleasure for him having our Gunning-yachts in his harbour, all remarkable types together near the old sluice.


For that reason it would be nice to organize Summermeeting 2017 at Hindeloopen grateful for all his kindly support to Alcyone Circle in the last years.
We will inform you about further details as soon as possible.
But for now we think about the weekend of June, 24-25th of 2017.
Please let us know if this will be possible.                                                    


Kindest regards, 

Arjen van Boekel & Joost van ’t Hull,
Board Alcyone Circle
