Going Dutch!

Why not trail your boat to the Netherlands this year? To whet your appetite, we bring a gallery of photos from the annual Reeujwik Raid held in October, 2023. This year it will be on 4 – 6 October, 2024. Put the date in your diary! There’s also an invitation to join the Dutch OGA as they celebrate their 20th anniversary in August, 2024. Fnd out more here.

On 6 October, 2023 boats started to gather at the GWV Elfhoeven Yacht Club in Reeuwijk, Holland for the 19th Reeuwijk Raid. All sorts of classic boats were represented; dinghies, racing classes and converted lifeboats. From a total of 18, five came from the East Coast Gaffers in England, including a Gaffling. There was sailing, sculling, rowing, music, food and socialising before catching the Stena line ferry back to Harwich for the English Gaffers.
