Muiden – Zuiderzee regatta

Well. I’m sorry not having written about the Muiden Regatta so far! We had Olivier and Berit on board next to Stan and me and it was a very nice light wind regatta! Slowly but surely we are having a bit of confidence and even with new crew we managed our most important goals – not being last and finding the midfield….

However, letting the regatta alone (sunny, light wind and good company!!) the most remarkable thing about Muiden is the street to and from the harbour in Muiden…

A nightmare is a sheer complement…

Having my skipper in my car driving and cursing on all navigation systems which have led us through the middle of the medieval town of Muiden and then through a mini-narrow street to the harbour (not to speak of the cars on the left and the right parked in suicidal manner…) we had to find out this IS the only way to the harbour ha! Wow, all my respect to Stan who actually managed to get us and our boat through there…

After the races we’ve been lucky (or sneaky) being one of the first boats to crane and so, as a matter of fact blocking all the others behind us (we standing on the only narrow street putting the mast down… autsch, but that’s life…) Sorry….

At least a very nice endpoint to our travelling season with the Jabbadabbadoo! Now again at the Braassem she’s waiting elegantly for the winter-season ….
