Newsletter header

Dear all,

This year Alcyone Circle exists precisely 50 years!

As a matter of course your Circle will celebrate that in style, you can count on that. So Great News, but more is going on!!!
We’re pleased to inform you that the new website is ready yet to go live…
Last 2 months has been completely renewed.
Therefor a taskforce was installed with Bert Glazenburg, his wife Janneke Strikwerda, Arjen van Boekel and last but not least or IT-man Rienk-Willem Kuipers.
All of us worked very hard to make it possible to present your own brand new interactive medium on the World Wide Web.
A lot of interesting historical documentation under which a summarize of the Gunning and Valentijn story, the builderdrawings of Gunningyachts and old photo’s of Rallies in the sixties till eighties were added.
Arjen van Boekel verified all documentation and many incorrect data and missing links are dissolved now.
New users-applications are incorporated, so members can do so much more with the website now.
We would say: push and try out all the buttons and submenu’s to discover all content and usability.
On behalf of us and Rienk Willem; thanks a lot for all donations you put in to make this project succesful.

At last some further information about our
