The Association for Trintel and Trintella lovers all over the world.
The shared feeling of friendship and pride on our ships is important. The TFA is actively gathering knowledge about several different Trintel and Trintella vessels.
We welcome anyone who is interested in the, now classic, steel Trintel, and polyester Trintellas or the newer aluminium and composite types.
As a member, you will receive a newsletter twice a year.
We also organise gatherings twice yearly that members are invited to take part in. The Federation of Polyclassics also organises activities annually. The gatherings take place in spring and autumn. The first is usually by boat on the water while the latter is in a city in either the Netherlands, Belgium of Germany.
Finally, members receive passwords to access the digital archives on the website.

The spring meeting on May 29th seems far away. However, we are going to change a few things so we would like you to be informed!
What is different?
We want to enable members who cannot arrive by boat (anymore) to join us at the spring reunions. That is why we are staying in one location for three days. We also want to invite members who have never been to a spring meeting or cannot stay for the full three days. That is why we are organising a diverse programme. We did this so that anyone can join in at any time and star for as long as they wish. We offer different possibilies time-, budget- and stamina-wise.
We hope that we will see more members without boats on Friday and more members with Trintels and Trintellas 1 and 2 from the region to participate in the competition.
You will receive the entire programme with the form to enroll together with the magazine in the second half of April.
The board will evaluate this change after the spring meeting and present the findings during the autumn meeting.

The autumn gathering in Middelburg was a great success. Approximately 90 people, with many Belgian, German and even two British members had a pleasant and convivial weekend. Trees and Willem de Graaf and Ineke and Piet Jongepier had done an amazing job organising this weekend. Transport in a double harmonica bus, the reception in the Oosterkerk (east church) and the town hall with coffee and cake were fantastic! There was lots to see in this beautiful city. We were led by humourous guides and had a great time.
The official member’s meeting led by our chairman Loet Geldhoff back at the Van der Valk Hotel went smoothly and the atmosphere was good. We gained some new members and the jubilee book was introduced by Peter van de Waa. We had already sold 88 books at the registration!
We ended the day with a great buffet and chatted at the bar until late. You can see the photos that were taken at photos/meetings/autumn2013 or click on this page.
