Circe in OslfjordThis week’s POTW comes from across the pond. Who knew we had a European audience:

 

Dear Madam, dear Sirs,

with great pleasure do I read your Canadian Yachting News.

And I noted that you would like the share some photos of boats.

Attached you will find some of which I made:

KELPE in SANDE FJORDNo 1 does show my boat CIRCE, an A&R Hansa-Jolle in the Oslo Fjord close to Dröback.

The next one shows the British Yacht KELPIE aproaching Sandfjord, Norway in very light conditions at the late afternoon.

The next one does show my racing my CIRCE in Kiel. This picture was made by a friend who was participating on an other yacht.

Hope you like those pictures,
kind regards,

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 42

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 42By John Armstrong and Andy Adams
