Fwd: Brekend, Brekend: de verloting gaat door!

Henk Brolsma forwarded us an email advertising the next Dutch Wooden Boat Festival at Den Helder being organised by old friend and member of the Living Boat Trust Bert van Baar.  You can find out more on the website, translated into English thank goodness: https://dutchwoodenboatfestival.nl/about/  .  Looks like it will be a lot of fun, but the date (September this year) seems optimistic for those who want to attend from Australia.  We may just have to be online voyeurs.  If and when a visit does become possible we can highly recommend the Den Helder Navy Museum, situated in the early 19th century naval dockyards, which has the most amazing collection of boats and buildings.
