Barrie Grant

19th February 2022 – Today I received some bad news. A good friend, Barrie Grant passed away. He was always travelling with his tjalk Silk Purse and was often alongside Watergeus or Tordino. He died while trying to help a neighbour in the marine of Ypres during the storm yesterday. I remember him as a real enthusiastic person, together wit his wife, always giving me a beer and making time for a good chat! He will be missed.

Tordino – Spits Isabella

3rd February 2022 – We received some stuff like books, namesign and pictures of the spits Isabella. Three years ago we got from the same skipper the steering wheel and the propellor. A nice addition to the collection!
