With a week of delay (I caught a horrible cold) I arrived in Holland at the 23.10.2011, just a day after the General assembly of the CCS Motor yacht section in Lucerne.
MY ROLLING SWISS II was laying calm and save in her berth in Pekelharinghaven, Medemblik. It took me two days to go through the whole Trader 42 and its inventory list, to check, store or remove all the remaining food and to note all the little problems and things, which should be repaired or amended during the Winter lay at Peter de Klerks ship yard. And finally my Lady was ready for her winter lay.
On Tuesday morning I went through a rather long list with a lot of small issues with Peter de Klerk. After “MY Rolling Swiss II” was lifted out of the water, we checked the underwater section for damages- and we were delighted not to find any damage! …
Our skippers did a great job! Many Thanks for that!
MY ROLLING SWISS II did a great season 2011: From 01.04.2011 until 08.10.2011 she was at sea for 26 weeks and sailed 5099 nm during 883 engine-hours. She vistited 126 different ports in 7 countries and – had 3 engine oil changes… About 146 Skippers and crew members enjoyed their holidays on “Rolling Swiss II” during the 2011 season…. with more than 90% occupancy on the cruises again!
I just got only positive feedback from our members.
The cruisie schedule for 2012 has already been set, and is shown on the CCS website… so, please check it out at www.cruisingclub.ch!
Looking already forward to meet you again in spring 2012!
