Summermeeting 23-25th of June 2017 at Hindeloopen

Our harbourmaster and friend of the Alcyone Circle Onno Hoekstra…in his last year he will act like that…shall arrange the most beautiful spot nearby the old sluice for around 10 ships.
The following Gunning-yachts signed in to be present: Zeekoet II, Sayonara, Vita Nova, Woest maar Kalm, Vrijheid, Vrouwezand, Marmara and Cormoraan.
Peter Hoogenberk is working hard in the shed of Mast Yachtpainters at Drachten painting and giving Adriana van Texel her finishing touch and is looking forward to be present also with Henk-Jan. If possible Harmonie joins the party.
At the shipwarf of Haiko van der Werff the Cormorant Meermin of Wiet Schwartz gets a new centreboard case and fresh painting. It would be a great opportunity for Wiet that he can be present in Hindeloopen, such because he has to bring back Meermin via Workum to Muiden, so Wiet take that chance, be welcome!
Casper Pronk and his wife will join the party, but without Alcyone II ; she still is in restauration at the shipwarf of Haiko van der Werff.
Caecilia is not ready at that time, but next year she will be there!

The program: sail in at Friday-eve or Saturday morning, palaver around 11.30 hours on board Sayonara, sailingcourse on IJsselmeer between 13.00 and 16.00 hours, Captainsdinner at 18.30 hours at the Brabander and leaving on Sundaymorning.

For Captainsdinner we need your response a.s.a.p. with the number of guests.
Please mail us so we can make final reservation.
See you all at Hindeloopen!

Kindest regards,

Arjen van Boekel & Joost van ’t Hull,
