While racing at Travemünde week I took a trip to Hamburg to join the 150 Year Anniversary of the NVR Yacht Club. They are one of our many Reciprocal Clubs Worldwide.
I had the pleasure of joining the party for the Cross Atlantic Race they held as part of the celebrations and visiting the Club House on the small but beautiful lake in the centre of Hamburg that they frequently sail on.
I wished them congratulations on behalf of the RPAYC and our members for their 150 year given that we had just had our sesquicentennial celebration last year.
Andreas Christiansen. Chairman of NRV and I exchanged burgees as part of the celebrations.
Big thanks to Kaspar Stubenrauch the President of the German 5.5m Association who invited me to the celebrations.
