The sun is starting to shine again! It’s about time too. After all the negative reporting in the media about the economy, etc., we are again on the way to sun, water and boating!
The major boat shows are now over and everyone is once more looking forward to spring. At the time of writing, we are expecting the first sunny day with temperatures between 18°C and 20°C.
That’s good news for water sports enthusiasts! We can bring the boat out of “hibernation” again and start to enjoy ourselves. All it needs is a check-over or a coat of anti-fouling paint and we’re all set to go.
So don’t listen to the news – just have fun, with the whole family. Since December, we’ve known what it means to be a family. Our son Mathijs was born on 15 December and suddenly there’s more to life than just boats. Thanks to everyone who sent us a card, Facebook message or personal congratulations.
As you can see, we are currently working hard to ensure the continuity of the business.
This edition of the Linssen Magazine contains some input from Linssen owners. After all, we produce this magazine for (potential) owners and anyone who would like to receive it. By popular request, we have added a section on maintenance tips (your questions are welcome) and the travel stories are packed with information which is really useful if you are touring, such as the maps to use, good restaurants and ports en route, etc. Do you have any other requests or good ideas for our magazine? Don’t hesitate to let us know.
All that remains is for me to invite you all to the Linssen Summer Festival from 11 until 14 May 2012. You will be able to see (or sail) all that’s new at Linssen, look at a new (or used) Linssen or just enjoy yourself chatting to other owners or the Linssen family.
We hope you have a fantastic sailing season, a lot of good weather and some great trips!
