Dutch Sailing Barges At Sea!

More great shots, again courtesy of Seabart. Very cool. Seabart says estimated arrival date is September 1st.

Tugster Will has been doing some research & has lots of interesting info (including the origin of the word "yawl")to add (in English, even) on Tugster.

Lekker mooi, gentlemen (I just learned that from Tugster Will, too - and if it doesn't mean "Thank you very much", would somebody please let me know pronto)! note next day - Will had said "Lekker mooi" at the end of his first email back to SeaBart & I'd guessed (wrongly, as it turns out) from the placement that it meant thank you - Jos at Racing Rules of Sailing left a correction in the comments, seems it's more an expression of admiration! Thanks!
