Hi Ernst, Yes i agree about the Dog house.... Ugly!

what drew my eyes as to if it was a NC is that the for ward deck looks so much like a Alan Buchanan design. I am sure somebody may read this post and come up with what type of yacht it may be.

I thought that i may stick my toe in the water to arrange an offshore rally for 2018,  i think it would be good to do so in your part of the world. Do you have any idea's thought's, dates, Rally locations?

all the best John

Hi John,

My favourite Rally location is still Oosterschelde & Grevelingen in Zeeland. Love it there!
Nice harbors, great old towns (Zierikzee, Goes, Yerseke, Brouwershaven, Scharendijke, etc..) , good facilities and Oosterschelde little bit challenging with tide.
Like last summer extra challenging for us entering harbors and mooring on engine with fair winds 4-5 Bft and tidal without a working gas handle. 
But it didn't spoil our holidays , the towns were just too nice to visit.

You're welcome!

ok, that looks a nice spot marina's and anchorages. just to make sure i have the correct place is it
http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/Netherlands/zeeland
quite easy for UK yachts to get to, personally i would do  uk - Ostende - middle burgh

so do we want to take idea this further? perhaps a new thread or poll on the site asking members if they would be interested in a rally for all offshore yachts?  I  would like to do it either in 2017 or 2018. but that is just me!  A you are the Boss would you like to start up a new thread with some pics etc. of the planned area,

john

Hi John,

Moved to another topic then ..
Hahaha, @ home I am not the boss [biggrin]

Tried to find the Deltaguide for you, but digitally only available in German & Dutch.. Will see if I can scout an english version for you!
The Dutch version gives an idea with pictures & maps :

On the tourist agency's website is some info, they tried to make a little interactive:
