Our magazine: the Friendship Flitsen

Unfortunately the 'FRIENDSHIP FLITSEN', it appears 3 to 4 times a year, is written in Dutch. Sometimes there is a English article. In that case it will also be published here.

A lot of articles is written by our own members, and inescapable by the members of the board. Those articles goes about the announcement of our yearly events, or our annual members meeting, which we are required to keep under our statutes. They also publish the necessary documents about finances and other planning. And sometimes they report on our events. Although we prefer our members to do so. We think it is important to know how they experienced the events.
Most of the members like to share their holiday stories with us. We are happy with that.

Sometimes a member writes an interesting technical article, about maintenance of his ship, or improvements or installation of new accessories. See for that the page about Downloads & Links.

We would like to invite You to write something about your experience with your boat, of course in English. We will publish it in our magazine, and of course on this page. You know, your not the only English speaking member, and not the only Sailor in a Friendship in England. We like to hear from You. Of course it's your choice!

If You like this, and want's to be a member, it's not so bad idea, go to the Contact-page. It's easy.

On this moment you can download the Friendship Flitsen, see below. But we prefer to have the space filled with English articles. We'll wait and see.
