Tuesday June 18. The other Paul de Leeuw

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

In Holland Paul de Leeuw is a well known tv personality. But I like my Dutch-Canadian-Kiwi Paul de Leeuw better. Paul came to visit me yesterday. We have been close friends since 1975. Before Paul moved to New Zealand in 1986 we saw each other regularly in Vancouver, he crewed on “Gemini” and “Fleetwood” in most of my Swiftsure sail races. ¬†We both had our own wood export companies. He is vacationing in Waddinxveen. Paul walked in when father/son de Boer were laying another deck section on the boat. We walked back to the marina and talked till nearly midnight.
