North Sea Rally 28th - 30th July 2017

July is getting closer and therefor we need to get more serious about the North Sea rally. The plans are still flexible and open for alternatives, so I would like to hear suggestions. For now, we will still will meet in Oudeschild, Texel on July 29. Here we will have a joined dinner.

The tide on Saturday is favorable for a trip east at a reasonable time, so we will sail together across the Waddenzee to Kornwerderzand, where we will go through the lock on to the Ijsselmeer. We'll continue our trip an visit Hindeloopen. We'll dock in the old Harbor. In this typical former South Sea village, we will have a joined drink and go for dinner somewhere in the village.

Since May 2004 a pretty red Contessa 26, BIKA, has been our only home.

I was recently in British Columbia and spotted a familiar shape in April Point Marina, @ 50.1N, 125.2W

HORIZON - a Plan for the SHTP

(Single Handed Transpac)

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Richard Hillman and I live in Huntington Beach in Southern California.  I bought a 1976 Contessa 26 in January of last year and am outfitting it for the SHTP which leaves from San Francisco on July 12th 2008.

As of now, I only have photos of "Horizon" before I changed her name from "Kiaf'.
