Thursday Sep 10

Yesterday my nephew Dirk Jan stopped by on his lunch hour. This morning my cousin, Gido van Ommen, came by again on his way for his bi weekly visit to his step mom. Els van Ommen, who lives nearby. I always thought I had most of my looks from my mother’s side. The below picture shows otherwise.

Gerrit here asked me to crew with him on his “Vrijheid” in the weekly Thursday night race. There was a good breeze and it was good fun. We did two races and got back to the club just before dark. Now I feel even more as part of this great bunch of sailors. I had not sailed dinghies in ages but it’s like riding a bike and the other activities that start with “s”; skating, etc.
