Announcement Summermeeting 2014

Dear all,

Last Saturday we’ve had a pleasant Wintermeeting with a fine 3-course dinner at Brasserie Richard in Amsterdam, sic! It was good meeting eachother again after such a cosy Rally to Neuwerk. A pity 8 of you had to cancel short before, but at the end 22 guests represented the Circle with pleasure. Of course we’ve missed our Joost, Ida, Niek&Wies, Klaus&Elgin and Sanne& Rob. But you cannot have it all!

That evening we showed -live on the Internet- the results till now on of the rebuilding process of the Alcyone-archive website. Everyone was impressed, so we will complete this job in gratitude to a special taskforce with Arjen van Boekel, Bert Glazenburg and Rienk Willem Kuipers. A lot of work but worthy!

Some of you with busy agenda asked us again to communicate as early as possible about our activities for this year. So, hereby our plans for the Summermeeting 2014.
First, the plans for a Rally Kornwerderzand- Die Schlei shall be cancelled. To much skippers cannot make the time free to go there: you will need nearly 4 weeks to do it in the right way.

Second the good news: your Circle organize a weekend to meet, greet, sail and wonder: just for fun! Summermeeting at Saturday 27th of June 2014, sailing in at Friday eve and leaving at Sunday.
This time with a choice in location and area: Medemblik or Hindeloopen?
Please let us know a.s.a.p. if you will join the Summermeeting and which harbour you prefer.

Kindest regards, all the best,

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