Dear Al,
...  Allan and Sue have been very good to show up at the W rallies; maybe they went to Koudum, Friesland, and have pictures from there!?  I know they went to Oulton 1999 as did Grethe, Lars and Geir Jemterud, and also Ken t.y. with his daugther and a friend. Some of their pictures I have seen from that event.
Norw. W.Ch. + Rally 2000. On Allan's you'll find pictures, and the ones below are from the same Portal, but from /5140. From there I have tried below to give the text in English, but making enlarging arrangements for pictures is beyond me - sorry!  Rolf H-H. is the specialist for me on such!

Good luck - get preferably min. 2 liters of water per day - stay well !
K. rgds, Ken, W1348"Maitken" 


W5140 Mosja really means Grandpa in Dutch, but due difficulty in pronounciation for the Dutch grandchildren, it made a new and special addition to the Norwegian language. Einar Tveito, joined SWS 1975 as an eager W-racer and W-cruising-sailor. Often he made long solo-cruising trips from Kragerø and East to Outer Oslofjd., and SW to nearly Kristiansand; bad weather made him turn back on that one.

In 1996,  E.T. sailed as crew in W1348 Maitken on a cruise from Kristiansand - Cape Lindesnes v.v.  in good company with W2042 Fru Larsen, Bo & Neel. A rough trip hard on the wind and breakers, but although E.T. had been through a demanding heart-operation that left him unconscious for 18 days, he stood up to the demands in splendid tough W-seaman style, taking a lot of water over his neck as he prefered not to helm.

E.T.´s Cabin and permanent summerplace which receives many W.s on visit.

Making ready for departure. The person by the flagpole picks up his clothes being dried
as a slippery foredeck made him partly wet the night before.
