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.
