Gouda in 52 photo’s – Reeuwijkse plassen

Ok, I like to show off. Let me introduce my boat and my wife. First things first: my boat. Kind of Blue a is 6.40 metres dinghy class Randmeer. A Dutch national class 50 years old this summer. T

he Randmeer class is the largest class in Holland with almost 2.000 boats build. We have number 946. Kind of Blue is one of the fastests ships in the fleet. It has won the Dutch National title several times and also the Sneekweek, Hollands largest sailingevent with over 800 boats in competition.

The lovely lady in pink is my wife. Apart from being a semi-professional fluteplayer she is a gifted sailor. We have made many a trip together and even tolerate each other in the race.Next Sunday is our first race of the year. New sails, new spinaker. High expectations!

  1. Lijkt me een erg praktische boot. Ik heb er zelf nooit in gevaren, wel veel in een Vrijheid en een Valk. En lang geleden ook op de Reeuwijks Plassen.
    Het is wel handig zo’n vrouw als je de bruggen door moet: hoe zuiverder de drie tonen, des te sneller gaat-ie open. Daar moet je maar eens op letten. πŸ˜‰
