The sailing season is slowly coming to an end. For the TVK, this usually entails shaping the Fall Reunion and making the final arrangements with facilities.

Considering the developments in the COVID pandemic, however, the board has decided against hosting a Fall Reunion this year. We very much regret this, but since the number of infections is going up instead of down and many of the participants would be part of risk groups, the decision has been made for us.

We realise that this, after also deciding against a Spring Meeting, will be a disappointment for many. Our great plans will be placed on the backburner, and we hope to have a great meeting year in 2021.

You all remember the story of the Irène, a Trintella Ia, which had been neglected for many years in her home port of Colijnshaven. We have reported on this on many occasions in our Club Magazine, especially on our efforts to track down the owner and get in touch with them to ask them to take better care of the ship. After some time we managed to get in touch with the owners – Alain and Muriël – last March. We, Willem de Graaf, Peter van der Waa and your series coordinator Loet Geldhoff , and the owners, met on the Irène.
