Kalo Mina! December has arrived with a bang and has us feeling all festive here at Vliho Yacht Club. Our annual ‘Turning on the Lights’ event at the weekend was a huge success again, this year’s decorations created by Heather and the team are even more imaginative than ever, giving the whole club a merry glow.
The guys down at the yard are wearing their winter warmers, as even though the sun is still shining the temperatures are slowly dropping here on the island. The main focus at the yard the last few weeks has been to finish winterization of the yachts, check for any cabin leaks, gel coat repairs and to continue with some of the bigger projects we have to complete this winter. One Moody 43 arrived at the yard to be re-sprayed, but instead the team refurbished the hull to make it look better than ever!
I mentioned in the last post Ruairi, Vicky and Mark heading to the METSTRADE show in Amsterdam. It’s safe to say the boys enjoyed the techie side of things and playing with new gadgets the yachting market has to offer, a lot more so perhaps than the injection of culture they were forced into as Vicky dragged them off to the Van Gogh Museum for an afternoon (Ruairi’s face says it all)
We’re ploughing towards Christmas with still lots of things happening and to do lists longer than Santa’s naughty list, so expect a few more updates before we see in 2019.
Stay Warm (I am with the heating on full blast in the office!)
