Sailing in Rotterdam

Last week Rodric and I went out sailing with his mom, Pauline, and his stepfather, Dik, on their 100-year old boat. Dik has re-finished the boat back to it's original tall-mast state, complete with ropes, winches and wooden pulleys. He chose the logs for the masts himself from Germany, then finished them himself before having them hoisted onto the boat. It is now an official Dutch Antique and usually lives in the Rotterdam marine museum.
