Sailing on "De Zwerver," 1986

The yacht "Zwerver" was built in 1956 in Holland and had won the prestigious Fastnet race in 1961. It is the only time I joined an organized vacation, sailing had been my hobby when I was in my late teens and having a chance to sail on a, albeit a slightly ageing, ocean racer like the "Zwerver" for several weeks between Greece and Turkey was a dream come true. We sailed from Marmaris to Kasadasi, stopping over at Rhodos and a host of other Greek islands and it was magical.
