    Thank you sharing your adventures.

    Whist ours begins on Sunday henning, and good news, the giant sandbar in our estuary has collapsed, and even at low tide there's good sailing water opposite the club ramp. Not so good news is that the outer bar has also collapsed and on a rough day the fulll force of the sea will blow well down the estuary. Another interesting year to come.

    I know Joost Martijn quite wel: My son skippered one of his boats, the aforementioned tjalk ”verwinning', for several years and we made the huge black gennaker for her. I really hope the fleet will survive the Coronacrisis. I hope some of you will book her when it is possible again, and I am sure you will not be disappointed. Frank

    Another 2 years gone. Didn't have much sailing time. New towing vehicle.
    I'll keep my NIS 18 on the trailer next season. Started building a Michalak IMB last year and looking forward to sail her next year.

    Love your NIS. How much does the mast weigh? If you keep it on the trailer, how much will you use it if you have to step the mast each time? I find it tough to go for day sails if you have to put in more than about 30 min to rig and launch the boat... thanks.

    The boom is heavier than the mast, it's made of carbonfibre and I don't know the weight, but you can carry it alone without any problems.
    I'll use my NIS for a two weeks trip in summer and maybe one week in autumn.
    For daysailing I'll use my Bolger Teal and the Michalak IMB when it's finished

    This year the sand has moved again. Getting up river involves sailing out to sea on the incoming tide, across the front of the bar in surf and coming back in on another entrance. Not something I relish in a 12ft ply dinghy. Of course when the tide is out coming back the bar is dry…….
    I may have to fit wheels…….
